College football Saturday is only one week away. We are taking a look at some of the best quarterback in the country. The mission is to showcase the top 25 quarterbacks that every college football fan must see. There will be great football played all across the country, and we have entered an era of the most prolific offenses in the history of college football. We are counting from 1-25.
Of course there are going to be a lot of familiar names on the list. However, some of the players haven’t even taken a snap in college football yet, but when they do, their expectations to succeed will be through the roof.
You can be upset if your favorite player from your favorite team doesn’t make the list. If you think a name should be on the composite list, let Top 10+1 know it will be placed under careful consideration.
This time we are counting up. No more of that countdown nonsense. Let’s prepare to debate.
Now, here’s the first five of the top 25 college quarterbacks to see.
11. Jameis Winston- Florida State- Florida State Freshman Jameis Winston won the starting job and some are tabbing him to be this seasons Johnny Manziel. That's high praise, especially when he has to replace first round draft pick E.J. Manuel. First game is against Pitt.
12. Casey Pachall- TCU- Casey Pachall had his last season cut short due to substance abuse problems. Other than that, there isn't been much to stop Pachall from succeeding on the field. He will get his first shot to wow folks against LSU.
13. Jordan Lynch- Northern Illinois- Jordan Lynch was one of the most productive quarterbacks in 2012. After his 25 passing touchdowns and 19 rushing touchdowns, Lynch is already in the mind of every Heisman voter in the country. Lynch had 3138 passing yards. Northern Illinois looks to improve upon their 12-2 season last year. They begin the season against Iowa.
14. Kevin Hogan- Stanford- Kevin Hogan became the Stanford starter halfway through the season and he did not lose a game. Hogan lead the Cardinal to the PAC 12 title and a Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. He completed over 70 percent of his passes. Kevin Hogan also averaged over 4 yards per carry. He seems to be the next great Stanford quarterback.
15. Rakeem Cato- Marshall- Rakeem Cato threw for 37 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. At 69 percent passing, Cato is very efficient through the air. Cato is not much of a running threat. In 2 seasons, he has 63 total yards. Cato did lose his best receiver to the Patriots, so he'll need to be even more accurate.
