MIDWEST RECRUITING: The QB issue — signalcallers from the Mitten you’ll know about soon

By: Scott Burnstein, June 7, 2019, 2:45 pm

Here’s a breakdown of some quarterbacks you might not know about now, but you sure will by the end of the 2019 prep football season in the Mitten:


Conor Easthope (Ann Arbor Pioneer Class of 2021) — Throwing for 1,425 yards and 14 touchdowns as a sophomore, this 6-foot-3 signal caller has great pocket presence, a piping-hot gun of an arm and nice touch on his deep routes. Central Michigan offered back in the winter.


Zach Trainor (Walled Lake Western Class of 2021) — Ready to set the LVC on fire with his power-charged play under center, the 6-foot-2, sturdily built Trainor started as a freshman at Hartland before transferring to Western last summer and backing up Boston College-bound Sam Johnson in the 2019 campaign. He has offers from Southern Miss and Florida Atlantic.


Tyler Pape (Parma Western Class of 2020) — The most underrated field general in the state right now, drops MAD DIMES!! Central Michigan offered in April.


Dante Moore (Detroit King Class of 2023) — The next BIG THING at the quarterback position in the PSL, can you say DIAPER DANDY?


David Williams (Dearborn Heights Robichaud Class of 2020) — Quietly decimated defenses as a fab frosh in 2018, will do the same, only louder and to more acclaim the next three years.


Braylon Silvas (Flint Kearsley Class of 2021) — The best kept secret on the gridiron in Genesee County, total electricity leading an offense.


Jack Beno (Detroit Catholic Central Class of 2021) — Should be one of the top QBs in the Catholic League in 2019, showed an ability to ignite the offense with his arm and his feet in emergency duty last season as a sophomore.
