Quarterback Central: The Rest

With the top four QBs in the Class of 2010 down, let's look at 'the rest'.

We've now examined the top four senior-to-be quarterbacks in the Metroplex: Scotty Young, Zach Lee, James Franklin and Matt Brown.

Now let's take a brief look at four more, in no particular order, who we can consider to be "the best of the rest" of the Class of 2010 QBs, a group loaded with talented players.

Matt Joeckel, Arlington HS - Joeckel is a physically-imposing pro-style QB at 6 foot 4, 220 pounds. He threw for 3,017 yards last seaosn with 29 TDs and just six interceptions. He also rushed for nine scores. He is getting interest from Arkansas, Clemson, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, SMU and TCU, but hasn't received any offers yet.

Jared Barnett, Garland HS - The 6 foot 1, 190-pound dual-threat signal caller doesn't have the eye-popping numbers some of his counterparts tout, but his athletic ability is plenty adequate. He threw for 1,376 yards and 14 scores to go with 420 yards rushing and three scores last season. He was a bit of a guinea pig this year, as Garland changed to a spread offense from its traditional power running attack. See him here. He has interest from Florida, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Wake Forest, but will most likely be recruited as an "athlete". He has no offers.

Luke Woodley, Highland Park HS - Folks may recognize HP quarterbacks of recent years, such as Matthew Stafford, who will likely be the top NFL draft pick in April after a fine career at Georgia. Now, Woodley is following in his footsteps. Woodley, a 6 foot 2, 185-pounder put up some big-time numbers as a junior with 3,746 yards, 41 scores and six picks. He also rushed for eight touchdowns. He has interest from Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and UCLA.

Javia Hall, Dallas Skyline HS - The 6 foot 2, 175-pound dual-threat QB passed for 1,379 yards, 18 TDs and completed 60 percent of his passes. He has interest in Ole Miss, Missouri, Utah, Wake Forest, Boise State.
