Daytona Combine: QB's
Joshua Jones
Joshua Jones

Posted Apr 26, 2010

Florida recruiting analyst Mike Bakas held a recruiting combine in Daytona Beach over the weekend and over 250 players participated. Below is a breakdown of the quarterbacks.

Best Prospect:
Joshua Jones (East River) -- The 6-6 gunslinger has Div 1 tools, without a doubt. He threw the best ball of all the quarterbacks, tested very well, and is coming off a strong junior season at the Orlando school. He doesn't have any offers yet but expect that to change in the coming months. Jones was very impressive on Sunday.

Best Performance:

Future Star:
Jordan Mullis (Eagles View) -- Only a rising sophomore, Mullis has an impressive skillset. He'll have a Div 1 body before long and has the arm and athleticism to really develop into a nice prospect in the coming years. He's also a very good baseball player who will be one to watch moving forward.

Others Who Stood out:
Darius Darden (Robert E. Lee) -- A prep quarterback who may end up switching to wide receiver or even tight end in college, Darden has an impressive frame now and has BCS-caliber athleticism. Look for him to get a lot of attention this spring when college coaches make their rounds.

Saveion Gibson (Eastside) -- He lacks ideal height for a quarterback prospect but he could play running back at the Div 1 level and has the athletic numbers to back it up. He's an impressive athlete.

Austin Parker (Mainland) -- He lacks ideal height but has a live arm from the left side and understands the game very well. During 1 on 1 drills, he was making some very nice throws and several receivers pointed him out as being one of the top passers. He plays at one of the state's premier programs and has the skillset to have a big year.

Cody Phillips (Trinity) -- He lacks ideal height for a major college QB prospect but he has the goods to play at the next level. His 40-time was impressive and he was impressive throwing the ball during 1-on-1 drills.

Sean Washington (Atlantic) -- He plays QB and DB and is probably better suited to play corner at the college level. He has Div 1 tools at the corner position and it'll be interesting to watch him develop those skills.
