The Uncommitteds: Top 5 Quarterbacks

1/15/2009

Ever wanted to know whom the best uncommitted players in the state were?

That is where MDVarsity.com can help. For the next month and a half, until the Feb. 4 signing day, we will list the Top 5 Uncommitted prospects by position. We will launch the initial lists this week and will update the lists when players commit.

Today we are taking a look at the quarterback position in which two players who were once committed, top the list.

1. Raymond Cotton, Meade

Meade's Raymond Cotton would not have been on this list a month ago. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior had verbally committed to Auburn, but with the firing of Tommy Tuberville, Cotton decided to reopen his recruiting. Whoever lands Cotton is getting a strong-armed, highly mobile quarterback.

2. Tom Chroniger, DeMatha


Chroniger is another athlete who was once committed. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound senior verbally committed to Eastern Michigan earlier this year, but opted to reopen his recruiting. Coaches have said Chroniger is being recruited as a defensive back at major Division I-A schools, but for our purposes we will list him as a quarterback since he spent the majority of his Stag's career behind center.

3. Jonathan Perry, Dunbar

Perry has a strong arm and is able to escape the pocket to extend the play and give his teammates time to get open. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior helped lead the Poets to the past two Class 1A championships and has been gaining more recruiting interest after throwing for over 1,600 yards and 17 touchdowns this season.

4. Kevin Fulton, Milford Mill


Fulton is a late addition to this list - based on his play throughout the season and in the inaugural Maryland Crab Bowl. The senior has good size, 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and showed a strong arm and good decision-making.

5. Tim Donnelly, Stephen Decatur


The cousin of two ACC quarterbacks (Sean Glennon of Virginia Tech and Mike Glennon at N.C. State), Donnelly looks to have the lineage to play college football. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound senior transferred to Decatur from Hawaii before his junior year and led Seahawks to a 13-7 record the past two seasons.
