Top QB prospects from the state of Louisiana since 2008


It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of Louisiana, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating quarterbacks the last few years. Frankly, there haven’t really been that many big-time QB prospects.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked quarterback coming out of Louisiana is the guy who signed in the last few months–Brandon Harris of LSU. Harris inked in the fall using the new NCAA rule that allows him to come on board early. Then he dazzled the LSU fans with his performance in the spring game. He was 11-for-21 for 195 passing yards and 3 touchdowns while also rushing for 77 yards and another touchdown. He is by far the top QB prospect to come out of the state of Louisiana since 2008 … and of course that timeframe doesn’t give the chance for the Mannings to be considered. We’ll get them in next time.

Here’s a look at all the top 5 quarterback recruits that came from the state of Louisiana since ’08.
