TOP QB RECRUIT RANKINGS
Top QB recruit rankings at College Football Today features around 100 top QB's in the 2021, 2022 & 2023 football recruiting classes. Given there are 130 FBS, 125 FCS, 169 D2 & 96 NAIA football programs in College Football Today and with not every team in need of a scholarship QB in each class, our QB recruit ranking lists should max out at around 200-225 top QB recruits in all three classes. Below, you will find the same S.T.E.P ratings algorithm, but with the new adjustments in % points used to calculate recruits final S.T.E.P ratings score. After releasing our fourth recruiting class, we feel the new adjustments help us better evaluate football recruits more concisely than the old metrics used in previous recruiting classes. Below, you will find our old percentages on top of the new S.T.E.P ratings algorithm metrics we used last re-rank and will continue to use moving forward.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL TODAY
The QB position is arguably the most important in college football today, as they are normally looked upon not only to be the leaders of the offense, but also the entire locker room. These characteristics are identifiable on game tape in the way a QB commands the huddle and leads his offense downfield, but are extremely hard to place a numerical value on. From past experience, normally great quarterbacks are not just great young men, but natural born leaders of men. These type of QB's create a cohesion that is unrivaled and helps them create separation from their opponents when the game is on the line. With today's modern technology, we are able to follow the progression of all of our ranked QB recruits and begin to attempt to place a numerical value on other intangibles like work ethic & overall football IQ. As I was writing the first few paragraphs of this article, ESPN's Tom Luginbill gave us more in-depth knowledge of how the recruit rankings system works on other national networks like 247 and Rivals.com. Luginbill and his football recruiting staff have been the best in the industry for sometime, as they are constantly evaluating football recruits across the nation.

2021 TOP QB RECRUITS
2021 top QB recruits at College Football Today are a group from top to bottom that is loaded with next level potential and features 42 of the best high school QB's in America. If we took out the offers part of algorithm, which in my opinion can be used as a safety net of some sorts for other national recruit rankings, the list could reflect a little differently. Some 2021 quarterbacks have been blessed to play on some of the best HS football teams in America and have yet to experience much adversity. A few QB's on the list are experiencing nothing but adversity, as they have very limited weapons around them and are still stuck in a pee-wee offensive system. You could not deny Preston Stone's body of work, as he has thrown for nearly 10,000 yards the past three years and was able to lead his team to a 12-1 championship season in 2019. Preston had only 94 carries on the season, but was able to rush for almost 900 yards and 11 touchdowns on the 2019 season. This brings his career total rushing yards to 1,636 yards and 24 touchdowns, which is remarkable when combined with his passing statistics over the last three seasons. Preston's work on the football field has not gone unnoticed, as he has received 45 D1 offers according to 247 Sports and has been compared to Texas dual-threat legend Johnny Manziel. Preston has verbally committed to SMU football.

He has a sling shot for an arm and when given the chance to call his own plays in the All-American Bowl, Stack proved his football IQ is far beyond his years. Stack has transferred to Marietta HS in Georgia and will be teamed up with Top 300 TE/WR recruit Trent Scheuerman, who was recently placed on Georgia State football's recruiting board at the LB position.
