It’s been a few years since former Columbus East Quarterback Gunner Kiel was making headlines as a national recruit. Since 2012, the quarterback position in the state of Indiana has been low key on the national radar. In 2013, Danny Etling who is now at Purdue, was the only prize recruit at the quarterback position.  Decatur Central 2015  Quarterback Tommy Stevens is the face of Indiana as the latest quarterback recruit.  The time has come for the most important position on the field to  bring in a new crop of top prospects that could be household names.

Fort Wayne has a couple of potential national recruits at the quarterback position. Carroll’s Aidan Smith and Luers Noah Wezensky are leading the way in the class of 2016 in Indiana. Wezensky possesses the skill set and mechanics to land several big time offers. Wezensky earned an offer from Akron his freshman year. Aidan Smith is as smooth as they come. A fluid passer and enough zip to beat defenders closing on the ball. Smith, a varsity starter last year is making a name for him self this Spring at camps and could have plenty of offers heading into his junior season.

None may be better than Brownsburg’s signal caller in Hunter Johnson. Johnson stepped in as the starter for the 6A program as a freshman. Leading to solid numbers in a heavy run oriented offense. This offseason, Johnson continues to hone his skills and make physical gains in the weight room, standing 6’2 and weighing 185 pounds. He has a live arm and knows when to add touch. He’s capable of extending plays and moving the pocket with his legs as he possesses 4.6 speed. The 2017 prospect has the potential to be the biggest quarterback prospect since Gunner Kiel. Recruiting is also picking up steam for Johnson, whose older brother is a player at Northwestern. There are few other names coaches will need to pay attention to.
