While I think that Jeremy Crabtree overstates things when he writes that the SEC “always has been a hotbed for the top passers” – this season being a good example of that not being a likely case – there’s no question that this is impressive:
When Frisco (Texas) Centennial four-star quarterback Ryan Mossakowski committed to Kentucky late last week, it gave the conference commitments from five of the top 10 pro-style passers in the nation.
Along with Mossakowski at No. 5, No. 4 Aaron Murray is heading to Georgia, No. 6 A.J. McCarron is heading to Alabama, No. 9 Zach Mettenberger is heading to Georgia and No. 10 Josh Nunes is a Tennessee commitment. Digging even deeper, Mississippi State commit Tyler Russell ranks as the No. 13 pro-style passer and LSU pledge Chris Garrett is No. 15.
Among dual-threat quarterbacks, the conference has commitments from the No. 1, No. 11 and No. 12 players at the position. The headliner is LSU commitment Russell Shepard, the nation’s top dual-threat player and No. 4 prospect overall.
Should be good times ahead…
