2018 4* QB Joey Gatewood (Auburn 12/5/15)

548 posts in this topic

6'3", 206 out of Jacksonville. He told 247 Sports and Fanbuzz that he will choose between Florida State and Auburn at "some point this season". Also "they're exactly even. Auburn, I'm big on Auburn. I always have been. I'm also big on FSU". Knowing Gus' success getting early commitments that stick from highly rated QBs (Burns, White) I thought this worthy of a thread. Guess no stars yet for 2018 guys but he's currently rated by some as the top QB in the nation. He visits the Plains September 26 for the Miss.State game and Nov. 28 for Bama.

Update: 12/05/15 - Joey commits to AU!

"It's the place I really thought I could see myself at in the future," Gatewood said. "It's a great program run by great people and great coaches. It's great to be a Tiger."

If his interview is any indication, he's ALL Auburn...

His highlights look pretty dang good. He stands tall in the pocket and is very good at keeping his eyes downfield, but also seems to be able to feel the pressure around him. When he can set his feet and throw, his mechanics look pretty good to me, but when he starts moving out of the pocket, his throwing motion isn't as fundamentally sound.

Running wise it's kind of the same story. He looks like he used to be a running back, he keeps the ball high and tight and clearly puts an emphasis on protecting the football. One criticism I would give is that it looked like he wasn't incredibly fast, so I'd like to see him work on his straight line speed so that he can kick it into another gear and outrun some folks.

All in all, he'd be a huge pickup. A big time QB like this can help build the class around him, and that is a big BIG plus.

I live right around the corner from his school. I plan to see couple games mainly cause I love to go to HS football games, but will look to watch him specifically in case he is in AU future!

2018?!? is this serious?!?

Not really worth talking about right now considering that Malzahn and company very possibly won't even be here after next season, let alone when this kid is ready to sign a NLI.

JG has much higher ceiling than WB or LM IMO, but def 3 good ones on deck. Need offensive improvement on the field next year to retain.

Where's the ole early signing period when you need it??
