Top three 2015 Rivals.com QBs now committed to Pac-12 schools

Brady White

The Pac-12′s quarterbacking future’s so bright, it’s gotta wear shades – if recruiting rankings hold any weight, that is.

Friday evening, Newhall, Calif. high schooler Brady White verbally committed to play his college football at Arizona State next year.  In addition to the Sun Devils, the finalists for White’s verbal (for now) services were ASU conference rivals Cal and Oregon.

White is a touted four-star prospect in the Class of 2015, rated as the No. 3 pro-style quarterback in the country by Rivals.com.

The two pro-style quarterbacks ahead of White in next year’s class?  No. 1 Josh Rosen, committed to play at UCLA, and No. 2 Ricky Towns, committed to play at USC. So, yes, that means the top three pro-style quarterbacks in next year’s class are committed to Pac-12 schools.

To stretch it out even further when it comes to the Left Coast league, four of the top eight and five of the top 12 are committed to Pac-12 schools, the others being No. 8 Jake Browning (Washington) and No. 12 David Sills (USC, since the age of 13).

Interestingly, the No. 7 prospect in that group, Brett Rypien, is verbally committed to Boise State amongst all of the Power Five heavyweights who are heavily pursuing the nephew of former NFL quarterback — and Pac-12 great — Mark Rypien.

    Just wondering what the rankings of Joe Montana and Tom Brady were. I remember Brady Quinn as a #1.

    Keep in mind that Manziel was only a 3 star recruit and He wasn’t even offered a scholarship @ Texas. Also J.J. Watt started his career as a walk on @ Wisconsin !

    maybe they are PAC 12 commits because they all are from California??
    I doubt the three best high school QBs are from California! look at where the top five NFL draft QBs are from. Rivals misses a lot on talent w/focus on Cal, TX and Fla talent being over-rated.

    Soon there will have to be a new definition for “pro style quarterback”.

    2014 NFL Drafts top four QBs (Bortles, Manziel, Bridgewater, & Carr) all happen to be from either Florida, California, or Texas. So are Aaron Murray, David Fales, & Stephen Morris.

    Well, if the rankings and analysis are proper, let’s hope everything pans out and that in a few years the pendulum swifts away from the SEC and we won’t have keep listening to SEC-centric media bias.

    But, can’t miss prospects don’t always work out or Jimmy Clausen would’ve won 4 Heismanns.

    The top 4 Rivals QB in 2005 were: Sanchez, Perriloux, Crompton (Tenn), Christensen (Iowa).

    The top 9 Rivals QB in 2006 were: Stafford, Mustain, Tebow, Jones, Snead, Locker, Williams (Illinois), Freeman, Ricker.

    The top 9 Rivals QB in 2007 were: Clausen, Mallet, Taylor (Vtech), Cam Newton, Corp, Brantley, Paulus, Garcia (USC-East), Korn.

    It’s a shocker – three kids from California choose to go to school on the west coast…

    You can easily find QB greats that weren’t highly regarded high school players but if you look at the #1 QB from each class there are a lot of guys that played on Sundays.

    02 Vince Young
    03 Kyle Wright
    04 Rhett Bomar
    05 Mark Sanchez
    06 Matt Stafford
    07 Jimmy Clausen
    08 Terrell Pryor
    09 Matt Barkley
    10 (not a QB in top 50 players)
    11 Jeff Driskel
    12 Jameis Winston

    Don’t be surprised if these guys are stars.
