GAINESVILLE -- Here's an initial list of high school quarterbacks to keep an eye on this season. Florida has reportedly offered each of these players a scholarship. UF's biggest need next season will be at quarterback, in my opinion.
Braxton Miller (Huber Heights, Ohio)
Offers: Alabama, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, LSU, Miami (Fl), Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Virginia, Wake Forest, West Virginia, etc...
Thoughts: Miller is a prototypical dual-threat quarterback for Huber Heights Wayne High. Huber Heights is a suburb of Dayton. Florida was late to offer Miller but Meyer has been recruiting him hard ever since. Ohio State is the favorite here. Miller is reportedly visiting Florida around April 10 for the spring game.
Christian LeMay (Matthews, N.C.)
Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami (Fl), North Carolina, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, Florida State, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee, etc...
Thoughts: LeMay should probably be considered the Gators' top target.
Teddy Bridgewater (Miami Northwestern)
Offers: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami (Fl), Ohio State, Rutgers, South Florida, Tennessee, USC, West Virginia, etc...
Thoughts: Teddy Ball Game is the heir apparent to Jacory Harris at Miami. Good luck prying this kid away from the Hurricanes. I don't see it happening.
Kiehl Frazier (Springdale, Ark.)
Offers: Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Duke, Florida, Illinois, Kansas State, LSU, Memphis, Miami (Fl), Michigan, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas, Tulsa, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, Western Michigan
Thoughts: Any kid from Springdale, Ark., should be considered a Razorback in waiting.
Marquise Williams (Charlotte)
Offers: Clemson, Florida, LSU, Maryland, Miami (Fl), Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Syracuse, UCLA, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest
Thoughts: Charlotte's anti-Chris Leak.
Max Wittek (Santa Ana, Cali.)
Offers: California, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Illinois, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon State, South Carolina, UCLA, USC
Thoughts: Another Brian White recruiting special. This Mater Dei High quarterback seems to fit the Florida mold. It's Meyer vs. Lane Kiffin all over again!
Justin Worley (Rock Hill, S.C.)
Offers: Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, North Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee
Thoughts: Looks like a John Brantley clone.
Jeff Driskel (Oviedo)
Offers: Arizona State, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, FIU, Georgia, Illinois, LSU, Miami, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Tennessee, USC, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest
Thoughts: One of top prospects in the state.
