Quarterback instructor Donovan Dooley and his brand Quarterback University hosted a showcase for 15 young gun-slingers from around the Midwest and Canada. Among those receiving invites to attend, were three quarterbacks from the state of Indiana. 2016 Noah Wezensky of Fort Wayne Bishop Luers, 2014 Michael Myers of Noblesville Guerin Catholic and 2016 KJ McCarter of Columbus East high school were selected. Upon arrival at the Plymouth, Michigan facility, athletes were greeted by the QBU staff and received words from Barwis Methods owner, Mike Barwis. Quarterbacks were then put through a series of drills to showcase footwork, throwing ability and arm strength along with some classroom work.
According to Dooley, each brought something to the table and have tremendous upside. Rising Sophomore Noah Wezensky was considered a top performer at the showcase and mentioned to us that he felt confident that he was able to compete with such a strong group of quarterbacks. Wezensky said “I was happy with my performance and felt I could compete with anyone there.” Wezensky is receiving early interest from a number of college programs. Wezensky’s stock will continue to rise as he proves his elite status at some of the best events in the Midwest. After winning MVP for the quarterback position at the always highly talented Best of the Midwest Combine and receiving invites to the ELITE 11 it’s certain that Wezensky will be one of the top quarterbacks in the 2016 class.
Michael Myers is a protypical quarterback with the size (6’3 205) and arm strength to make all the throws at the collegiate level. It’s expected that the senior-to-be quarterback will land a few offers heading into the fall. Bowling Green, Indiana and Ball State are showing Myers the most interest.
The unfamiliar face among the quarterback group belonged to Columbus East high school young signal-caller, KJ McCarter. Columbus East has a long tradition at the quarterback position and McCarter is up to the task of carrying on the school’s legacy. This is the program that has produced the likes of former Notre Dame and NFL quarterback, the late Blair Kiel. In the footsteps of Kiel, followed his nephews Drew, Dusty and Gunner. All 3 Kiel brothers played division 1 football with Gunner receiving the most accolades as a 5star recruit and currently apart of the Cincinnati Bearcats program. KJ is trying to make a name for himself by going and competing at the best events. “I like attending events where there is good competition” says McCarter. McCarter also noted that it was an honor to be selected to attend the event so early in his career and the the instruction was top notch.
Look for each of these young quarterbacks to make some noise this fall as they take what they learned at Quarterback University and apply it to their game.
