It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of Missouri, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating quarterbacks the last few years. In fact, the state has been quite productive when it comes to producing BCS level quarterbacks.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked quarterback coming out of Missouri is Blaine Gabbert. No big surprise here, as he was highly successful at Mizzou. His legacy may eventually be challenged by current 2015 Mizzou commitment Drew Lock from Lee’s Summit, but only time will tell there.

Here’s a look at all the top 10 quarterback recruits that came from the state of Missouri since ’08.
