Bryant Bull, 6-5, 185, QB, 2023, Marshfield (Mo.) @BryantBull1
Bull is a big QB and one of the first guys you notice in the throwing line for size and power, good looking SW Missouri arm and prospect coming up that will be looking to turn more and more heads in the recruiting world this senior season for Marshfield. Bull has a good arm and can use his feet when everything breaks down and he is forced to run, has picked up a recent Evangel offer and has several D2 programs in the Midwest looking at his game such at Pitt State and Southwest Baptist just to name a few that like the arm top talent among ’23 QB prospects to know in SW Missouri.
Manny Burnett, 6-1, 185, QB, 2023, Raytown South (Mo.) @mannyball1
Burnett is one of the players out of the Kansas City area, class of ’23 Raytown South senior arm that has a 6-1, 185 frame, Burnett is a player that has really made an impression as one of the top up and coming ’23s in the KC metro and a player we expect to just get better and better with his experience as a leader under center. Burnett is a player that will be looking forward to be big year ahead and is one of those players that can make the most of his chances, a player that could be in the 1500-1800 plus passing yardage by the end of the 2022 season, a name to know getting more and more college looks with his skills at QB.
Beau Bush, 6’2, 200, QB, 2023, Pella (Iowa) @BeauBushQB
A lefty laser thrower, Bush impressed us again this year, seen this strong armed and powerful cannon for a thrower earlier this year and no doubt a good looking QB. Bush does a nice job of getting rid of the ball in a timely fashion and has one of the top pure power arms in Iowa football, a QB that really has a big time gun for an arm and is one of those guys that sees the field well in front of him and makes good choices. His powerful arm should no doubt warrant a lot of college looks and attention in what is expected to be a very big senior campaign at Pella for 2022. Excellent zip on his pass, great looking velocity on his passes.
Zach Calder, 6-0, 190, QB, 2023, Jackson (Mo.) @CalderZach
One of the SE Missouri QBs ready for a big year for the top notch Jackson program, Calder, 6-0, 190 and a senior leader is a player that has a good arm and is one of those guys that really fired the ball in there well at the Finals, a player to have on the senior risers list at QB and one of those QBs looking to have a year that will attract next level attention with his play and leadership skills on the field. Keep an eye on this prospect out of the SE Missouri area.
Hayden Carroll, 6-6, 185, QB, 2023, Capital City (Mo.) @Hayden_Carroll7
Carroll was the tallest QB prospect at the Finals at 6-6 inches tall and is a guy that can catch some next level eyes with this size. The ’23 class Capital City prospect is a player that has attracted some impressive college looks and has looked at programs like Valparaiso and Central Missouri. Could really make his college list grow with a big final campaign in 2022 for Capital City. Carroll is a long QB that has been able to do a nice job of placing the ball in good spots and doing a nice job of quickly locating his open WRs for some big and impressive plays. Should be one of the risers to know in the ’23 for QB prospects.
Maxxwell Ford, 6-3, 215, QB, 2023, Lee’s Summit North (Mo.) @maxxwellford
Ford could end up becoming one of the top transfers in Missouri football this year for Lee’s Summit North and will have no shortage of talent to throw to this upcoming season. Expect Ford to quickly emerge as a top tier talent among Missouri senior class QBs this year and is a player that has the size and the arm strength to garner some D1 interest and attention with his impressive arm. A very smooth passer and one of the QBs that can survey the field and see what is in front of him well. This All-State honorable mention QB has been on several D1 visits, camps and radars such at K-State, North Dakota State and South Dakota just to name some for this hot ’23 arm.
Andrew Hedgecorth, 5-10, 165, QB, 2023, Smithville (Mo.) @ahedgecorth11
A name to know, we have been impressed by this Smithville talent and impressive ’23 class arm. Andrew is a QB that has a lot of different skills that can impact a game in a big and positive way and is one of those QBs that can use his athletic skills to create and make big plays happen, Andrew isn’t a guy that will stay still in the pocket and is a player that can make a defense stay honest, some footwork that can beat the defense when the passing lanes are not open, Hedgecorth has been one of the most productive through the air QBs out there and should have one huge senior season ahead as he looks for another well over 2,000 yard season ahead.
Hayden Jay, 6-1, 185, QB, 2023, Mill Valley (Kan.) @HaydenJay18
Jay could be the top leader on a Kansas City football field this year and has been just that throughout his huge career for winning the big games at Mill Valley with multiple state titles in class 5A and looking to claim one more before he heads on the the college game in 2022. Jay is a very impressive leader on the field and is one of the QB prospects that has earned a Benedictine offer, will also look for another huge through the air year and had 37 total TDs, 2,343 passing yards and 27 passing TDs along with 453 rushing yards, earned All-State HM Honors and should be a top tier Kansas QB in the ’23.
Braydon McPhee, 5-11, 175, QB, 2023, St. Pius X (Mo.) @BraydonMcphee
McPhee is a senior arm to know from St. Pius X and is a KC rising prospect to know. 5-11, 175, McPhee is a QB that is one of the better all-around athletes out there and was a two way standout for St. Pius X, a very busy athlete on the field and a First Team All-Conference honoree as a specialist, McPhee is a QB and play maker that a that MVP of his team kind of guy that can impact a guy from many different aspects and is a natural leader as well that plays hard each and every down.
Zaccary Roberts, 5-11, 185, QB, 2023, Covington Catholic (Ky.) @Zaccary_Roberts
Was great to have this very talented Kentucky QB at the FINALS to show off his talents and impressive arm. Roberts, a 5-11, 185 QB from Covington Catholic is a player that can locate his WRs and targets quickly and has a nice smooth release on his passes, no doubt a player that has a lot of skills to be a good one and one of the ’23s that was impressive, good arm and a player that is cool under pressure and should be a Kentucky name to know in the 2023 class.
Nick Sanford, 6-4, 200, QB, 2022, Christ Prep (Mo.) @nicksanfordii
The lone class of ’22 player at the Finals, Sanford is an impressive length QB at 6-4 and has a good arm and a high football IQ also, should make a good next level QB that will give a team some very nice size and length at the QB spot. The ’22 class Christ Prep grad is a player that has impressed us with a good arm and an accurate arm. Has looked at Illinois colleges Greenville and Quincy among his college interests and has a good arm and a big upside for the next level. A smart play maker with a big arm to keep an eye on for the next level.
Joseph Vick, 6-5, 192, QB, 2023, KC Center (Mo.) @joseph10vick
A very lean and long 6-5 inch QB prospect in the 2023 class from Kansas City Center, Benedictine has already offered this impressive looking athlete at QB and Vick has also been making several college camp radars and is a player that has the talent and impressive athletic skillset to rack up several senior offers in the coming 2022 season. Good looking athlete, rare 6-5 frame at QB that could make him jump onto more and more next level radars as well. A big 2022 could spell more and more big offers from this KC Center arm and QB prospect to know.
