There were so many top prospects at the quarterback position in the Class of 2015 at the IMG National 7v7 this past weekend. 35 teams from across the country competed for the national championship. Florida Fire defeated Unsigned Preps to win the title.
How did some of the nation's best signal callers do? Here's a breakdown of the rising seniors.
Deondre Francois (Bradenton, Fla./IMG Academy)
Francois transferred from Orlando Olympia to IMG back in March. You can already see the improvement and growth in the few short weeks he has worked with his coach, former Heisman Trophy winner and quarterback guru Chris Weinke. Things are slowing down for Francois. He's throwing at different speeds. This is a quarterback with a ton of confidence, athletic ability and arm talent. Francois is down to Florida State, Auburn and Oregon and should announce his decision next month.
DeAndre Johnson (Jacksonville First Coast)
When I am wrong I will be the first to admit it. For two years I completely missed the boat on this kid. I thought he was a reach for FSU and that the Seminoles could do better. After seeing Johnson this spring and summer at four different events he has really grown on me and I am now a huge fan. I thought Johnson had a brilliant weekend. He's decisive and accurate. Sure he quarterbacks a team loaded with talent at wide receiver but he's the point guard. I absolutely love the way he can spray the ball all over the field. As my colleague Scott Kennedy said, "it's a different guy in each game." Johnson dropped dimes for two days to D.J. Matthews, Tristan Payton, Kalif Jackson and everyone else on the River City Kings roster. He's poised and very accurate. I am now a believer in Johnson. His size (height) is a concern but I love everything else about his game. I am really looking forward to seeing how he performs at The Opening next month.
Brycen Lee (Lafayette, Fla./Mayo)
Lee is probably the biggest sleeper in the state of Florida at this position. He has terrific size (6-foot-4) and very good arm strength. There are times when this kid made some big time throws. He led Pro Impact to the regional championship in March. Right now he has offers from Troy and Eastern Kentucky.
Brad Mayes (Tampa Berkeley Prep)
Mayes is as solid as they come. He beat out Miami commitment Dwayne Lawson (Tampa Hillsborough) for the starting job for Team Tampa. Mayes doesn't have the upside of Lawson but he's the better overall quarterback now. He's average in size and has pretty good arm strength. What I like is his accuracy and decision making. Like Lee, he's flying under the radar.
Tyler Queen (Kennesaw, Ga./North Cobb)
Queen continues to improve this summer after missing most of the spring with an injury. He's throwing easy with the ball jumping out of his hand with good velocity. His accuracy isn't where he wants it to be yet, but it's already better than what I saw three weeks ago at the Elite 11 tryout. Queen is committed to Auburn.
Brady White (Newhall, Calif./Hart)
This Arizona State commitment from California is a four-star prospect and one of the top signal callers in the country. He didn't disappoint and certainly looks the part. White is one, smooth signal caller. I love the way he can spin the ball. At times, it looks effortless when he throws the football. White can throws with velocity or touch and he's deadly on the deep ball.
