There seems to be a developing trend in college football. In each of the past three seasons, a dynamic dual-threat quarterback has risen up and taken the sport by storm.
In 2010, it was Cam Newton at Auburn.
In 2011, it was Robert Griffin III at Baylor.
Then, of course, this past season, it was Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, who became the biggest breakout star of 2012.
Manziel received basically no national publicity before the season started, yet he ended up emerging as one of the most remarkable athletes of the year, as he became the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy.
It's doubtful that we'll see another quarterback experience the same type of rise to national stardom that we witnessed Manziel have in 2012. Nevertheless, there are still a few under-the-radar quarterbacks who could be ready to have huge eye-opening campaigns next season.
Here’s a look at 10 dual-threat quarterbacks who aren’t household names just yet. But they could be in store for a big breakout performance in 2013.
