The Wake Forest staff continues to be super busy in the recruiting game, and this time they are going after several nearby quarterbacks for the 2019 class. With Kyle Kearns being removed from the team, the Deacs could be left with only Jamie Newman and Tayvone Bowers in 2019, depending on how things go with Hinton’s medical redshirt. Getting one of these recruits would make sure that Wake Forest has plenty of depth at QB and that the Deacs are prepared for the worst case scenario regarding Hinton.
Extremely blessed to say I have received an offer from Wake Forest University!! https://t.co/Y5PEZwreoD— Sam Howell (@Sam_Howell2) May 19, 2017
Sam Howell is a QB playing at Sun Valley High School in Monroe, NC. He stands at 6-1, 200lbs. While it is to early for any ratings on Howell, he already holds offers from Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, NC State, Missouri, Charlotte, and App State. He is listed as a pro-style QB, which means he’s definitely more of a pocket passer than a runner. With Howell being an in-state player, it would be great if the Deacs could beat out the Wolfpack and the Niners by getting him to play in the black and gold.
Garrett Shrader plays QB at Charlotte Christian School in Charlotte, NC. Shrader stands at 6-5, 190lb, which is some great size for a quarterback. Much like Howell, Shrader does not yet having any star ratings yet and is listed as a pro-style QB. He holds offers from ECU, Louisville, and Missouri. At 6-5, Shrader reminds me a lot of Davis Webb, the former Cal/TTU QB and 3rd round pick of the New York Giants, so the maybe the Deacs end up with a future NFL quarterback. I, for one, would not complain about that.
Brendon Clark is a pro-style QB playing at Manchester HS in Midloathian, VA. He stands at 6-2, 190lb and is rated as a 4-star prospect by Rivals. As a sophomore, Clark threw for over 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns. It looks like Clawson and company are the first to offer Clark a scholarship, so hopefully the old adage “the early bird gets the worm” holds true for the Deacs on Clark.
Which QB do you think would be the best suited for Wake Forest in 2019?
