The Next 25: No. 8 Grant Gunnell, the state’s top quarterback in 2019, is Texas A&M-bound

Blessed with good height and a strong arm, Gunnell holds offers from most of the nation's top progams but has pledged to the Aggies.

Posted June 19th, 2017


Scouting the state’s top recruits for the 2019 class:

No. 8: Grant Gunnell, quarterback, Houston St. Pius X

FYI: 6-5/203; 4-stars


Texas offer: No

Top offers: Texas A&M, Florida State, Arkansas, LSU

College: Committed to Texas A&M on June 5

Scouting Gunnell: The prototypical prep quarterback looks like Gunnell. At 6-foot-6, the signal-caller towers over people in the pocket and possesses a strong arm to match his natural size. He made waves as a freshman, passing for 1,438 yards and adding 305 more rushing. But it was his sophomore season that woke up the recruiting world. In 2016, Gunnell passed for 4,970 yards and 71 touchdowns to just 11 interceptions. He’s the top-rated quarterback in Texas for the 2019 cycle and already has committed to Texas A&M but holds offers from most of the major programs in the nation.
