Some highly rated high school football quarterbacks in 2015 include Blake Barnett from Santiago High School in Corona, California; Kyler Murray from Allen High School in Allen, Texas; Jarrett Stidham from Stephenville High School in Stephenville, Texas and Brandon Wimbush of Saint Peter's Preparatory School in Jersey City, New Jersey. Quarterback ratings can vary depending on the category of the rating system, such as pro-style quarterbacks versus dual position quarterbacks.
Josh Rosen of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California is considered by some as the best pro-style quarterback in high school football for 2015. However, Rosen ranks lower in overall rankings than other quarterbacks such as Deondre Francois from IMG Academy in Orlando, Florida. Francois has a significantly lower pro-style ranking but can also run the ball, so he has a higher place in many other quarterback rankings.
Rankings tend to differentiate between pro-style or pocket passing quarterbacks and dual threat quarterbacks. Dual threat quarterbacks can typically excel at running the ball as well as passing. Dual threat quarterbacks can, and often are, still ranked and rated for their pro-style passing abilities as well. While Blake Barnett and Rosen are considered pocket passing pro-style quarterbacks, many of the best and highest ranked quarterbacks are dual threats, such as Francois, Kyler Murray, Jarrett Stidham and Brandon Wimbush.
