Jack Beneventi (Lisle Benet Academy, Ill.) and Drew Cook (Regina, Ia.). There has been talk that Cook may get looks at other positions, but he will look to show he deserves to stay at quarterback here. Champaign (Ill.) Centennial's Jimmy Fitzgerald is committed to Illinois and is a nice size kid who can throw on the move. Oak Park River-Forest (Ill.) has an athletic signal caller in Lloyd Yates who holds offers from Western Michigan and Colgate. Fairview (Ohio) junior Colin McNamara has an offer from Buffalo.
Then there is a big group of juniors who will look to prove themselves and move towards FBS offers. Muskegon (Mich.) Mona Shores' Tyree Jackson has added size and strength this offseason and had a good junior season. Rockford (Ill.) Boylan's Demry Croft
is a tall (6'6) athletic passer. Gabe Green of Springfield (Ill.) Sacred Heart Griffin is a smart, consistent, accurate kid who has been the model of efficiency in the last two seasons. Hasan Muhammad-Rogers of Oak Lawn Richards (Ill.) gets overlooked because of his size, but can spin it with just about anybody. Ditto for Ryan Brand of U of D Jesuit (Mich.), who also is not prototypically big, but has a great arm.
Gary (Ind.) West Side's Ramone Atkins is a big kid with a strong arm. Chicago (Ill.) Phillips' Dewayne Collins is a nice sized, athletic kid who can project to other positions as well. Jon Wassink of Grand Rapids (Mich.) South Christian has lead his team deep into the playoffs the last two seasons and is another smart, consistent passer. Brady White will come in from California and has prototypical size.
Other seniors to watch include Ohio's Pat Ford, Indiana products Riley Neal and Kyle Castner, Michigan natives Lane Porter, Brian Alsobrooks and Keagan James as well as home-staters Austin Bray and Tom Fielder. Neal put up big numbers as a junior and is hearing from a number of Division-1 schools. Porter is a big, strong-armed kid who played in a run-heavy offense as a junior and is looking to prove he can throw it with the best of them.
As for the underclassmen, Justin Berry has a couple offers and is being looked at by some schools as a safety but wants to use opportunities like this one to prove he is a high-level quarterback. Will Phillis is a 6-foot-3 freshman from Ohio with potential. Two of Southwest Ohio's top young quarterback prospects, Chaminade Julienne's Jacob Harrison and Moeller's Thomas MacVittie will also compete.
