South: Top Five QBs

Five-star Torrance Gibson

Take a look at the best of the best at quarterback in the south here. Scout breaks them down...

You have a mix of pocket passers and dual-threat quarterbacks at the top in 2015.

Here are the top five:

Torrance Gibson | Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage
| 6-4/207 | No. 3 Overall

Scouting: Gibson is a dual-threat quarterback who some think could have as much, if not more upside at wide receiver. He is a lefty with good size, he throws a very good deep ball, and he has the ability to make things happen when plays break down. His mechanics can improve and his consistency can as well, but that part of his game has come a long way in the past year. He is strong out of the shotgun and he likes the zone-read offenses.

Ty Storey | Charleston (Ark.)
| 6-3/220 | No. 11 Overall

Scouting: Storey is an Arkansas kid and he is already on the Razorback commitment list. He plays out of the gun a lot and he sees the field well. He shows good anticipation, he throws a very catchable ball, and his has good feel for the position. He needs to improve his footwork and his mobility. His best ball is the deep ball down the sideline.

Dwayne Lawson | Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough
| 6-5/207 | No. 12 Overall

Scouting: Lawson looks a little like Cameron Newton standing back there at quarterback as he waits to receive the snap. He is a big signal caller that stands tall in the pocket and he has very good mobility. He is raw in many areas now and he needs to improve his delivery and his arm strength, but he has a lot of tools to like with upside.

Tyler Queen | Acworth (Ga.) North Cobb
| 6-2/220 | No. 20 Overall

Scouting: Queen is a natural leader. He started as a freshman and he has really grown since then. He has great command in the huddle, he has excellent pocket awareness, and he is more athletic than some may think. His arm is above average, but not elite. He puts the ball where it needs to be put more times than not, but he can improve his spin. Queen is a gamer you want on your team and he is committed to Auburn.

Lorenzo Nunez | Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison
| 6-2/185 | No. 22 Overall

Scouting: Nunez is a quarterback who is comfortable when working outside the pocket. He throws well on the move and his feet are a weapon as well. He is a quarterback who can move and who can big plays with his legs. The ball comes out quickly. He need to improve his consistency as a true passer and continue to work on his mechinics.

8. J'Mar Smith | Meridian (Miss.)
