1on1 Showcase: QB's

The 1on1 SHOWCASE Camp stopped through Orlando and Jacksonville over the weekend and a few hundred players worked out. There were sseveral standout performers at the quarterback position.

Derik Abbott (Freedom HS in Orlando) showed up at the Jacksonville event on Sunday and threw the ball extremely well. At 5-foot-11 and 185, he lacks ideal size for a major college QB prospect but he has the arm to make all the throws, has good mechanics, understands the game very well, and is very competitive and has a leadership type personality. He looked like one of the best quarterbacks in the entire state of Floria on Sunday and should generate a lot of Div 1 interest this spring when college coaches come around.

Ronald Butler led Tallahassee Lincoln to the Class 4A state championship as a junior last season. He threw for 1,151 yards and 12 touchdowns. Butler was throwing darts on Sunday in Jacksonville. He throws a very catchable ball, has a nice high release, and is very athletic on his 6-2/185 frame. He's a proven winner, very athletic, and throws a very nice ball. He should develop into a BCS-caliber QB prospect later this year.

Carson Royal didn't even start as a junior at St. Augustine last season (he played behind all-state QB Kyle West) but he will this season and is primed for a big season. At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Royal can make mostly all the throws, is very smart, and loves to compete. He's very coachable, always looking to improve, and should generate a lot of recruiting buzz this spring while playing for one of the state's premier teams.

Jonathan Strahl will be a three-year starter at Spruce Creek HS this fall and he looked very impressive on Saturday in Orlando, winning the QB MVP Award there. At 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, Strahl threw a very good ball, developed good chemistry with all the various receivers, and looked to have an extra hop in his step. He seems like a good leader and should impress a lot of college scouts as his senior season gets closer.
