2021 QBs to Watch as Nebraska Hits the Recruiting Trail This Week

May 06, 2019

Nebraska is in a unique position when it comes to quarterback recruiting. Since July 26, 2018, the Huskers have had their guy for the class of 2020. That was the day that Logan Smothers made the 13-hour drive from Athens, Alabama, to Lincoln, Nebraska, to inform the staff in person that he would be committing to the Huskers. Since Nebraska has its guy, it now allows the staff to get to work on evaluating quarterbacks for the 2021 class. 

We are entering Week 3 of the evaluation period. We have already seen a few offers go out to 2021 quarterbacks, including Mississippi’s Ty Keyes. Who are some of the other signal-callers on the radar? 

It wouldn’t be surprising to see quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco pop up to visit these players this week in Texas. The state is loaded with quarterbacks for the 2021 class.

4-star Dematrius Davis‍ (Houston, Texas)

Davis visited Lincoln for an unofficial visit back in March to take in a spring practice. The Texan racked up 3,350 passing yards with a 71.6 completion percentage and 43 passing touchdowns as a sophomore. He led North Shore High School to a state championship as well. Davis picked up an offer that day he visited Lincoln.

Jalen Milroe‍ (Katy, Texas)

Milroe already holds an offer from Nebraska to go along with offers from Texas A&M, Florida State and others. In March, he ran a verified 4.64 40-yard dash at Nike’s The Opening regional event. As a sophomore, he was Named the District 19-6A Newcomer of the Year. He threw for 1,404 yards and 10 touchdowns with three interceptions last season while adding another 613 yards and 10 scores on the ground. 

4-star Preston Stone‍ (Dallas, Texas)

Stone is on his way to being one of the most sough-after recruits of the 2021 class. He already holds over 40 scholarship offers, including Nebraska. He has good size too, standing at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds and is a very accurate passer for his age. As a sophomore, Stone racked up 3,522 passing yards with 44 touchdowns to just four interceptions with 544 yards on the ground and 12 scores. He is very likely a future 5-star.

Eli Stowers (Denton, Texas)

Stowers is an impressive prospect physically. He’s listed at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, which is surely something that Verduzco would want to verify in person. He doesn’t have an offer from the Huskers yet but does have offers from Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Oregon and others. As a sophomore, he threw for 1,563 yards and 12 touchdowns and added 1,119 yards and nine scores on the ground.
