EXPECT TO SEE seven of the top 20 South Carolina high school quarterbacks playing FBS level college football.

The top two — Stratford’s Jacob Park and Northwestern Mason Rudolph — have committed to FBS programs: Georgia and Oklahoma State, respectively.

Rising sophomore Avery McCall of Dillon is ranked at No. 5 and was one of the best freshmen quarterbacks I’ve seen.

I have a 2017 player ranked in the top 10: Jake Bentley, a rising freshman at Byrnes High, is going to be the real deal. He has verbal offers and is going to see his stock soar. He will split time this season with his older brother, Shuler, who is ranked No. 4 on this list and has committed to Old Dominion.
