I notice in today's recruiting that many programs who want a top-flight quarterback prospect offer the QB early, and he usually is committed before his senior high school season. More times than not, the board that fills up quickest with commitments is the QB board.
Another observation is that programs usually don't take two upper echelon quarterbacks in a single class. Yet, there have been exceptions, and that's what this read will focus on. Other positions usually see teams sign more than one recruit in a class, therefore position classes within a recruiting class are born. Yet, there have been some good "quarterback-recruiting classes" over the pass decade (2004-2013).
Having a quarterback-recruiting class is a bit rare, and having a quarterback class of multiple elite-level prospects is almost insane. But the payoff can be great. Here are the best quarterback-recruiting classes of the past decade.
