Poag has ideal measurements and a nice high release when he lets the ball fly. He has good speed once he can stride and has several long runs of over 50 yards in his career. Poag is patient player, he steps into his throws and does a good job of surveying his options before running out of the pocket. His arm strength can certainly improve but he still makes tough throws and we are very please with his ability to roll out and make passes on the run. He seems to really abuse defense from the intermediate passing range showing a nice touch over defenders. Poag was just under 5000 yards passing during his HS career and totaled 64 touchdowns as well. He made a lot of progress with his footwork in the pocket, and really improved at finding the open receiver after the originally breaks down. At camps over the summer he ran consistent 4.60 40 times. Poag’s recruitment is interesting, he shows the tools that gives him a much higher ceiling than his peers in the 2019 recruiting class, but has been completely overlooked in terms of offers. Against all takers the 2019 QB has made plays, and it’s hard to find a QB that can throws as well on the run, or find receivers this well under pressure for his recruiting class. Poag has really improved over the last year, and has passed several in his class in terms of skill level and rate of progression. Colleges should absolute re-evaluate the 2019 recruit as this recruiting cycle comes to an end. Career 61% completion percentage during HS.
Career: 4949 passing yards, 49 passing TD’s, 1382 rushing yards, & 15 TD’s
