Class of 2022 QBs ready to shine – With the 2021 QBID Showcase ready to take place on Sunday at St. Pius X in Kansas City, Six Star Football takes a look at several prospects that are proven big time players, guys that are under control have big time arms and are big time leaders for their respective teams. Many are guys that will be the key elements to their teams this upcoming season.
Tre Baker, 6-0, 160, QB, 2022, Lee’s Summit North (MO) @Trebaker7
One of the elite QBs in the 2022 class in Missouri, Baker is one of those QBs that has some big time skills and is a player on a mission as a senior for Lee’s Summit North. The best QBs always make it look easy and Baker never looks rattled, cool under pressure, a guy that just makes the throw, very good touch, super strong arm and a player that has great placement on his throws. Baker can make some great plays and do it time and time again. He is a prospect on the rise with potential to draw Division I offers over the upcoming months.
Mason Brown, 6-3, 205, QB, 2022, Rockwood Summit (MO) @mbrown1502
An elite size QB at 6-3, 205, no doubt Brown is as impressive as they come for a frame that can take hits, bit his game is impressive and you have to like his next level potential, already getting looks from many colleges like Benedictine. Brown is a guy that can use his quick release and his on the money arm to be one of the top pick a defense apart QBs in Missouri, no doubt Brown is one big time player that knows how to give his team a great chance to win with his play.
Keyshaun Elliott, 6-3, 215, QB, 2022, Richmond (MO) @8keyshaun
Elliott is one of the class of ‘22s that has great next level size, 6-3, 215, as solid as they come among QBs attending the QB ID event, no doubt the Richmond High QB is a guy that has some very impressive next level potential. Northern Iowa and Eastern Michigan are just two of the many big time programs that love the style of play and athletic skills that Elliott brings to the game. No doubt Elliott is a gamer and a hot prospect to know among Missouri’s best QBs.
Luke Floysand, 6-2, 210, QB, 2022, Cretin Derham-Hall (MN) @LukeFloysand
South Dakota and South Dakota State are both colleges that like the very impressive Minnesota standout Floysand, no doubt Floysand is a QB in the ‘22 class that can air it out with the best of them, racked up 1100 yards with 14 TDs in just six games and was one of the most productive QBs out there with his big time arm and play making skills, colleges love this guys big time skills and they should, he is big time legit.
Lane Gardner, 6-1, 175, QB, 2022, Rose Hill (KS) @lanegardner130
Super lucky to see this Rose Hill (Kan.) QB at the Kansas City Showcase this April, no doubt a player ready to make some big time noise and a guy that can use a strong arm to be a major force, a player we think that with a big year could be landing a nice amount of college offers. Gardner is a player that is a strong armed senior to be for Rose Hill that has a good arm and is a very smart play maker that could be a good one in 2021 to keep an eye on. Gardner plays the spread offense and is one of those QBs that has some very good natural instincts on how to lead a team down the field. Good poise and nice job of being under control and making good plays and taking what is given to him to make the best choices under center. Gardner is a player that has that it factor in leadership and could be a name to know in the up coming 2021 season for Rose Hill.
Lance Hoffsommer, 6-2, 180, QB, 2022. Sedgwick (KS) @LanceHoffsommer
One of those QBs that has been as good and productive as any Kansas QB out there, a big timer arm and a big time athlete, Hoffsommer will continue to pick apart defenses again in 2021 and is a player that should be a big time high radar maker for this upcoming 2021 season. Hoffsommer is a player that has really impressed us and for sure one of those Mr. Productivity QBs that really can make things happen that impress. Lance posted 2019 stats of 162 completions, 258 attempts, 63% completion, 2,754 yards passing, 33 touchdown passes, 4 rushing touchdowns, in 9 games played and was the leading passer in the state of Kansas. What sets Lance apart is his delivery of the ball accurately and on time to receivers and part of this is his great pocket presence and his confidence in both himself and his WRs to make plays.
Dylan Scruggs, 5-11, 160, QB, 2022, St. Charles West (MO) @dylanscruggs6
We like Scruggs playing style and his athletic skills to be a college radar making, worked very hard this offseason and is a guy for St. Charles West that should turn some heads in his upcoming senior season, Scruggs is a player that is a good one and a very impressive junior in the St. Louis area to keep an eye on. At the 6Star Football Combine in St. Louis Scruggs recorded a 4.18 in the pro agility, a 31 powerball toss, and an 8’5 in the broad jump among his best event performances. Scruggs pro agility mark was impressive and was in the top 10 among all QBs at the event. Scruggs is a player that can really use an impressive and strong arm to find his targets down the field for some very big strikes against the defense. Scruggs also has the quickness to make the defense honest and is a player that can roll out and use his feet but also throw off balance and make big plays that are not always those routine throws. A very impressive athlete with a big senior season ahead and a QB with a load of potential.
Landen Shepard, 6-3, 235, QB, 2022, Lee’s Summit (MO) @landenshepard
A very powerful QB that showed some of his very nice explosiveness and no doubt one of the high profile type QBs in the KC area for juniors this past season, a 6-1, 2535power frame makes him an immediate standout player on the field that is a very impressive physical presence as well. His build warrants the promise of being a next level potential TE prospect that can catch and pound the would be tacklers in front of him, along with being a very fine blocker in the trenches for Lee’s Summit. Shepard has burst on the scene for the Tigers’ varsity, playing a tough, physical tight end position and showing the ability to block, catch the ball out of the backfield and make plays. He shows good accuracy and a high football IQ at the QB position and is a threat to take off and pick up tough yards as a runner as well. As an impressive TE Shepard racked up 417 yards on 34 catches with five touchdowns. Added three TD passes as a QB as well.
Brinley VanDiver, 6-5, 180, QB, 2022, Gallatin (MO) @VandiverBrinley
When you are 6-5 inches tall and a QB no doubt colleges want to take a look at see what you can do and Gallatin’s Brinley Vandiver has been a good one and a player that has that great size also makes him a nice next level prospect for sure. He has the kind of size and frame that college programs often look for in a prospect. He’s not a big scrambler outside of the pocket, but is a fluid athlete who moves well and shows good footwork. In nine games this season, Gallatin threw for 1,751 yards, along with 23 TDs and seven INTs.
Jake Vernnon, 5-10, 155, QB, 2022, Checotah (OK) @jake_vernnon
One of the most gutsy QBs and a guy that takes chances and has a very strong arm to make the big completions down the field for big plays for Checotah. Has a lot of talent and speed at WR for targets but also can really scramble with the best of them and make some huge gains with his footwork. Vernnnon is a player that always is on the move and is one of the more underrated runners in the state at QB. No doubt as very impressive runner with his feet and is a big time athlete.
