Top QB prospects from the state of Tennessee since 2008

US Presswire - Ole Miss QB Barry Brunetti

It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of Tennessee, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating quarterbacks the last few years.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked quarterback coming out of Tennessee is 2012 Pitt signee Chad Voytik, who spent 2013 backing up Tom Savage. As far as SEC QBs coming from the Volunteer state, Barry Brunetti was the highest rated product coming out of high school. He originally signed with West Virginia, but ended up transferring to Ole Miss. He also had some off-the-field problems.

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