In-depth look into some of the top QB's from the National Preps Showcase at Arizona Christian. 

Jackson Akins Jackson Akins 6'1" | QB Desert Vista | 2023 AZ , 2023, Desert View

Akins has continued to show improvement since I last saw him person at the Las Vegas BCS Showcase in July 2020.  Show good pocket mobility and awareness. Smooth footwork and mechanics in the drop back and in the pocket. He’s an accurate passer with developing arm strength, good touch on the deep ball but would like to see more velocity at the intermediate level and to the sideline. Clean, tight, and compact release that allows him to get the ball out quickly. With two years of development left he could be an interesting prospect as he progresses.

Reilly Garcia Reilly Garcia 6'2" | QB Campo Verde | 2022 State AZ , 2022, Campo Verde

Strong frame at 6’2” 200 lbs. Possesses good feet and does a good job getting into his drop quickly to go through his progression. Confident in the pocket he stands tall with a good balanced platform ready to drive off his back foot to deliver an accurate ball. Holds the ball high and has a quick release, doesn’t take him long to gather and throw. Showed good instincts with his ability to feel/avoid
