Midlands 2015: Top Quarterbacks

There are three true quarterbacks in the Scout300 for the 2015 class. Scout.com takes a closer look at these elite talents...

1. Jarrett Stidham

Stephenville (Texas) Stephenville
6'4 | 190

Recruiting Interests: Committed to Texas Tech

Evaluation: He is big and strong and has the exact frame you envision. He has a strong arm and a good overall skill set combo. He throws well working outside of the pocket. He is athletic and has the ability to run, which his time at receiver as a sophomore will back up. Has come in to his own as a junior and grown with each game. He is not afraid to take chances with the ball and press the action, shows confidence in decision making. Has a quick release.

2. Kyler Murray

Allen (Texas) Allen
5'11 | 170

Recruiting Interests: Clemson, Florida, Oregon, Texas A&M, Texas Tech

Evaluation: Typically, quarterbacks with his size are not rated as highly, but that speaks to the type of talent he possesses. Led his team to a 5A state title in Texas as a sophomore, showing a high acumen to read the field and make plays with his arm or his legs. He is a very accurate passer and can place the ball exactly where he wants it to go. He is very savvy as to when he decides to pull the ball down and run. A true dual-threat at the position.

3. Drew Lock

Lee's Summit (Missouri) Lee's Summit
6'4 | 175

Recruiting Interests: West Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi, Louisville, Indiana, Illinois, Oklahoma

Evaluation: Great all-around, top-level athlete who is getting offers to come in for football and basketball. He is talented and has good feet. He throws well on the run and is not afraid to step up in the pocket around the pressure and deliver the ball. Confident, has that special ability to make plays with his feet or with his arm. He makes dangerous passes at times, which he often completes, showing that he will take risks to force the big play.
