6'6 220lbs 4-star QB from out of Louisiana, goes to 5A school Ponchatoula
(His 247 has him listed at 6'5 204lbs, that's not current though)

As a Freshman he was 6'4 178lbs, he started & threw for 1,883yds 14TD's & 8INT's.

He visited Miami yesterday with the rest of his EPS Blaze 7v7 team that is in Miami for the Adidas East 7v7 tournament. It has also been reported that he carved up the Tampa team.

The kid has an absolute cannon for an arm & delivers the ball with great velocity. I know Max Johnson is the 2020 QB for us, but this kid imo has tremendous upside & will be one of the top QB's in the nation by the end of his Junior year.

Holds offers from Auburn, LSU, Baylor & Bama (his Bama offer is not listed on his 247 profile because it's not up to date & they offered him in 8th grade)

And I know most of yall will say he's an LSU lock, but he's not.

LSU is not keeping all of their top talent home these last few years, especially a QB. They lost 4-star QB Justin Rogers to TCU last year & a number of other top kids in their state over the last couple classes.

Damn. 6'6" - 220 as a freshman? Will be interesting to see what those stats look like as a senior.

He was 6'4 200+lbs as a Freshman, his current height/weight as of today is 6'6 220lbs.

He's still only 15 heading into his Sophomore season this fall.

Holy muddafaulking shlt! Is it possible this kid is going to be around 6-8 by the time he graduates? Is there a downside being that tall at the quarterback position? If his arms are really long, will that affect his wind up? Could it affect his release? Just spitballing.

If you just look at the picture of him standing there without even running video on the tweet he looks tall and lanky with really long arms. He can sling it though.

14 / 8 TD - INT ratio. Makes him a wait and see IMO

As a 14 year old Freshman that's not that bad, Idk too many kids putting up big numbers that young unless they play for one of the South Cali schools like Mater Dei or John Bosco.

If he doesn't significantly improve by his Junior year then yeach of course, but I was just posting him as a potential prospect to keep an eye on over the next 2 years with crazy upside.

Didn't mean that as a complete knock on em...Buddy got offered by Bama before he even played high school football.

When we make the playoffs our recruiting impact will be nationwide. We’re gonna have some high draft picks also in the coming years. Check mate mf’s!! Hell we might even get a heisman finalist.
No recruiting ground is safe.
They gonna have coaches acting like Lawrence Olivier in Marahon man.
You young bucks won’t get that joke.

I'll wait to see what he does production wise as a JR. But yeah, he's gotta improve that TD:INT ratio a great deal.
