Class of 2022 QUARTERBACK HOT LIST — Junior signal callers catching Burney’s eye

(alphabetical order)

Jeff Becker (Ft. Wayne Carroll 6-1) — Too hot to handle, too cold to hold, this kid is going Drew Brees on the comp.

Stats: 1,210 yards, 16 touchdowns (250 yards, 3 scores rushing)

Greg Bolt (Columbia City 6-5) — Hustle-and-Flow type of field general with great upside.

Stats: 835 yards, 13 touchdowns

Laban Davis (Eastside 6-0) — Cash money almost every snap, a closer in the clutch.

Stats: 790 yards, 10 touchdowns

Anthony Garzolini (South Vermillion 6-4) — Dropping dimes all over the field like Aaron Rogers.

Stats: 670 yards, 10 touchdowns

Luke Hammons (Columbus North 5-10) — Reminds me of Russell Wilson with more elusiveness outside the pocket.

Stats: 645 yards, 6 touchdowns (410 yards, 3 scores rushing)

Alan “Al B. Sure” Karrfalt (Covington 6-0) — Maybe the hottest junior QB in the state right now, has thrown for 700 yards in the last two weeks.

Stats: 925 yards, 10 touchdowns

Gehrig Slunaker (Mt. Vernon 6-2) — Playmaker personified, tough as nails under center.

Stats: 745 yards, 8 touchdowns

Brennan Stow (Lapel 6-3) — Flamethrower of an arm, fierce competitor.

Stats: 850 yards, 8 touchdowns

Houston Swan (Eastern Hancock 6-1) — Gunslinger mentality 24/7.

Stats: 1,175 yards, 15 touchdowns

Jakar Williams (New Haven 6-3) — The definition of a dynamic dual threat, a bigger Lamar Jackson type with video game-esque highlights.

Stats: 615, 8 touchdowns (300 yards and 4 scores rushing)

Notable nastiness under center in the Class of ’22:

Edinburgh junior field general Riley Palmeter tossed 7 touchdowns in a single game last week.
