For every position that college coaches have long used south Florida for in the recruiting process, quarterback is one that has never pegged the national meter.
With so many former quarterbacks coming back to the area and starting clinics, combines and other showcase events, the position has grown and continues to get more attention from colleges nationally.
With two Pro Bowl QBs from Broward County this past season, this region of the state is now gaining momentum – with quarterbacks working on their craft year-round.
No matter what time of year it is, you will find rising quarterback prospects getting on the field and working with talented receivers while being taught so much about the position.
As the 2023 season approaches, several Class of 2024 signal callers are getting plenty of attention and showing their skills on 7-on-7 teams and during combines, thrusting themselves into the spotlight.
You can see the growth with the underclassmen who are making major strides and grabbing some of the spotlight of their own.
Today, we take a look at five Class of 2025 rising juniors who will be in that spotlight from the start of the spring, into the summer and during the regular season.
Check out these impressive prospects:
Jason Barket Jr, 6-0, 175, Miami Westminster Christian. This quality and versatile football talent is someone we talked about last year – and followed through a very productive sophomore season. His family bloodlines are athletic, and this impressive talent has the ability to be very special over the next two years. While he is a mobile athlete, he will stand in the pocket as well and gained confidence as he played more. Isn’t shy about taking off with the ball either.
Devin Gonzalez, 6-0, 175, Weston Cypress Bay. After playing his freshman season at Flanagan, he made his move north this past season and showcased some impressive skills. Has a strong and accurate arm and is not afraid throw the ball in the middle of the field. Makes solid short passes and improved greatly on his intermediate and long balls. He is a pure passer who helps to open up the Lightning running game as well.
Camden Hartzell, 6-0, 180, Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian. Making a move in the off-season from Pembroke Pines Somerset Academy, this is one of south Florida’s most underrated prospects. In addition to his work in the classroom (3.5 GPA), this rising junior finished with 2,455 passing yards and 30 touchdowns. Added three rushing scores as well. This is a talented young man who fits exactly what the Eagles do on offense.
Andrew Indorf, 6-0, 180, Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas. Heading into spring, this is one of the biggest mysteries for the three-time defending state champion Raiders. While he saw limited playing time a year ago, his off-season work ethic will certainly give him a major advantage as the battle for the starting position is on. Accurate, sees the field very well and understands what this offense is all about. He has a huge advantage of having a superior offensive line, amazing receivers and one of the best running games in the county – without question. Will be interesting to watch his progress.
Ennio Yapoor, 6-1, 210, Miami Norland. From back in the 8th and 9th grades at Hialeah Champagnat Catholic to this past season as a huge offensive threat at Miami Norland, there may not be a better all-around quarterback in the state – and as he gets more exposure, he will show those who follow the positions nationally that he belongs in and conversation. Strong arm, athletic and versatile enough – pass and run – to have put up well over 3,000 yards and give the Vikings a reason to believe that they will be able to lineup against anyone in 2023. By the way, he gets it done in the classroom as his 3.8 GPA will certainly backup.
