For years, south Florida was not the real hotbed if you wanted to find quarterbacks.
The athletes that were developed in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties were just that – athletes. The pass a majority of the time mentality didn’t resonate with so many gifted football players that could play multiple positions.
While this region still has those types of athletes, there has been a move to attending more events that teach technique as well as being able to play and appreciate the position.
Ass arm strength and speed are still a lethal combination, what this area has evolved into is a haven for well-schooled talent that has a chance to make a statement at the high school and collegiate level.
As you already know that we list EVERY prospect in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, which are updated all the time.
These lists are not only for the fans to enjoy and benefit from, but the main purpose is to get more exposure and become a part of the recruiting process. College coaches at every level read the things that we put out every day.
The Class of 2024 quarterback position will once again feature some prospects that many already know about – and at the same time – are seeing publicized for the first time.
Remember, these are NOT rankings. They are a watch list that will continue to grow and change – with so many student/athletes making a move all over the two counties.
Among those impressive prospects include promising C.J. Baile (Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna), ready to make an impact Michael Merdinger (Deerfield Beach), already nationally-regarded standout Adrian Posse (Miami Monsignor Pace), future stars Cecil Stone (Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas) and A.J. Hairston (Coconut Creek Monarch), Mekhi Stevenson (Miami International Academy), athletic and skilled Rueben Toombs Jr. (Fort Lauderdale Stranahan), and ultra-talented & competitive Luke Warnock (Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons).
