There were lots of talented quarterbacks in the NCAA this year but not everyone can be the best. Here are the top three!
1. JOSH ALLEN — WYOMING UNIVERSITY
At my number 1 spot it would need to be Josh Allen playing for Wyoming University. Allen is just looks like a natural pro athlete—according to ESPN, Josh Allen stands at 6’4” and weighs 222 pounds with one of the strongest arms in college football. He’s very athletic experiencing a pro-style in Wyoming university system. Allen can make hard throws look easy. Although he does have a very strong arm, accuracy is something he needs to work on a little. On the other hand, look at Cam Newton–he’s not very accurate but he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, making it to the Super Bowl and winning an MVP award while still not being very accurate. Allen’s arm strength and agility is also comparable to a young version of Ben Roethlisberger–another player who had lots of success while not being very accurate.
2. MIKE WHITE — WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY
At the number 2 spot I have my personal favorite college quarterback: Mike White of Western Kentucky University. He doesn’t have the arm strength of Josh Allen but he does have better accuracy. According to ESPN, White stands at 6’4” and weighs 225 pounds. He used to play baseball in high school and can throw a fastball over 90 mph. White was recruited by many of the highest performance baseball schools around the country but White suddenly gained a passion for football. It took until his senior year at university in Fort Lauderdale before his first attempt as a starting quarterback. White’s personal quarterback coach Ken Mastrole eventually put White in contact with another school which was Western Kentucky White noticed how smoothly the team played and decided it would be a team he would want to play for. White reminds me a lot of Bo Jackson in the sense that he could probably play both sports in the future as a pro.
3. JOSH ROSEN — UCLA
At the number 3 spot is one of the many talented quarterbacks in the NCAA, Josh Rosen. It was very hard to choose the number three spot–I got stuck between Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold, but it takes Darnold a little bit of time to get fired up and ready to go hard on the field. But John Rosen goes hard for the full game. According to ESPN, Rosen stands at 6”4’ and weighs 218 pounds. One of the reasons why Rosen isn’t maybe any higher on my list is because of his shoulder injury back in early October 2016. He isn’t recovered to his full potential just yet. Still, I believe that Josh Rosen is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the NCAA.
