We have talked many times about the importance of the offseason for players hoping to make the leap from high school to college football one day. The offseason, critically important, is where tomorrow’s college-bound guys reveal themselves.
In an area generally associated with “water-fowling” there is something aside from ducks filling the air these days and in coming Falls. There is a dandy of a dual-threat QB named Max Gibbs, Class of 2023, and he can spin-it.
Don’t take our word for it. Take the word of the national quarterback breeding ground also known as QB Hit List.
QB Hit List is a recruiting site exclusively for quarterbacks. It features profiles, national rankings, and recruiting news.
It has just released it’s top 200 national signal callers. There is a familiar name among its releases.
Fulton County’s Max Gibbs has hit the list at number 190 among the sites dual-threat QBs. A dual-threat QB, as opposed to what is called a “pocket-passer” or even “drop-back QB” is someone with the athleticism to break down defenses with his feet while also possessing the arm strength to throw the route tree accurately and with zip.
Gibbs came away with a score of 85.80 (out of 100) and a two-star rating. Both are phenomenal scores for a 6-0, 160-pound rising Junior who will get taller, and darn-sure thicker and heavier, as Nature and “home-cooking” continues to do its thing.
Gibbs is someone who was under center a ton this past Fall, which was abbreviated for his county’s spending considerable time “in the red” this past season. While his production was impressive, especially in light of circumstances, it will pale in comparison to what the kid will almost certainly do in ’21 benefitting from way more reps playing in way more games.
This is one of those, “you heard it here” moments. When he blows up and everyone of the national recruiting services is clamoring about “its find” of a dual-threat QB-prospect from a rural corner of Kentucky, remember where you heard about him first.
