Christian LeMay announced that he plans to attend the University of Georgia after he leaves Butler…
Scout's Take: Christian LeMay
Christian LeMay has displayed many strengths in front of Scout and he is an elite quarterback here is a break down of the Matthews (N.C.) Butler star. LeMay has shown a very live arm. That was something he showed in the spring of 2009 in Charlotte at the Scout Combine and he has shown it with pads on as well. When I saw him against Vance in 2009, his top two throws in that game were on middle range square in routes across the middle. He had time to set his feet, square his shoulders, and really deliver a strong throw to his receivers. LeMay really showed off the powerful right arm on those two passes. He works out of the shotgun and directly under center in the Butler offense and that is nice to see because many quarterbacks are either always under center or in the gun in today's game. He does both well and he has shown that he can look over a defense while dropping back or as he stands back in the gun. LeMay really throws the ball with a tight spiral too. It is a consistent spiral, a tight spin, and good for the receivers to work with. He throws with a lot of consistency. Not only is he consistently accurate when given time, but his balls are thrown with consistent spin. When he has time to set his feet then he is usually spot on with his passes. He is a very good technician. He does so many of the little things well from keeping his feet moving to scanning the field to throwing with touch. One of the things the junior can work on is throwing the ball away when nothing is there. He will have to learn that as long as he is outside the tackles that he can unload the ball on the next level. He does a nice job of feeling pressure, but he can hold the ball a little long at times. All high school quarterbacks want to make plays every play but one of the best plays they can make is throwing the ball out of bounds instead of forcing it into coverage or taking a sack. Again, that is something LeMay will learn as he gets to college. The four-star QB can work on keeping the ball higher also. If his first read is not there then he had a tendency to drop the ball down making it accessible to defenders to knock away and also causing him to take longer to reload when he does indentify his target down field. Those are both things that are very correctible and things he will get better at under Coach Newsome and then under Mike Bobo at the University of Georgia. The Butler Bulldog is definitely one of the top quarterbacks in the South regardless of class. He has the size at 6-feet 3-inches tall and 187 pounds. He has the arm strength, he has the accuracy, he has the savvy, he has the composure, and he has the mobility it takes to be a top QB recruit. Yes, he is a pro-style quarterback that is best setting up in the pocket, but he has the legs to escape the rush, get outside the pocket, and to throw on the run. He has the speed to pick up yards when a play breaks down and defenses have to worry about that. He can run some option, he could run a few quarterback draws, and having those legs make him an even more dangerous quarterback. LeMay is the number rated quarterback in the country on Scout and as a junior he completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 3,296 yards and 44 touchdowns while only tossing two interceptions. Butler had an undefeated season in 2009 and won the 4A State Championship. Georgia was the school LeMay announced on Friday April 30 as his leader.
