TOP 2023 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
College Football Today released their top 2023 football recruits towards the end of the 2019 season and has seen many outstanding young men start to receive verbal offers to play at the next level. Throughout the process of evaluating top 2023 football recruits, I stumbled upon a young man from Ironton, Ohio, who I believe has the potential to be a game changer the next three years in Southern Ohio and in the world of College Football Today. Having acquired half of Team North for the 2018 Scout Trout All-American Bowl from the Southern Ohio region, I heard whispers of a young man who also exuded the mental and physical toughness of some of the best players to come out of the talent rich State of Ohio. When I finally got to flip on Top 2023 QB recruit Tayden Carpenter's tape, I realized that he possesses Tebow like dual-threat capabilities and could be one of the most gifted passers in the 2023 recruiting class. Tayden will look to fill the shoes of 2020 Youngstown State Penguin commit Gage Saylers, who helped lead Ironton to a 12-2 record in 2019 and Carpenter's ability to orchestrate a college style offense will be lighting up the scoreboard for Fighting Tigers. Check out Tayden's 2019 highlight's and read more below!
TOP 2023 QB RECRUIT
Top 2023 QB recruit Tayden Carpenter checks all the boxes when it comes to overall QB technique and exhibits outstanding footwork in the pocket. Carpenter is able to deliver the football using excellent body weight transition and has great torso whip, as well as a very strong upper body. Operating out of a spread style pistol formation, Tayden is able to create space with his legs while avoiding pressure and delivers precise eye-level darts to his receiving targets. He proves to have a very strong arm when hurling the ball deep downfield and is able to use his quick release to throw his receivers open downfield with great timing. Working under center out of the I-Formation at around :55 seconds, Carpenter can be seen in play-action setting up extremely quickly, while standing tall in the pocket to deliver a "Dilfer Dime" on a deep corner route that goes for a touchdown.
TOP 2023 DUAL QUARTERBACK
Tayden could be considered a top 2023 dual quarterback, as he is able to evade pass rushers instinctively and is an extremely gifted runner in the open field. When you witness how elusive he is at making defenders miss and combine that with his physical downhill style of running, you are reminded of Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Tim Tebow. Much like the former Denver Bronco playoff winning QB, Tayden uses a combination of raw athletics and a brutalizing stiff arm, while chewing up chunks of yardage for the Fighting Tigers offense. When comparing the two even further, Tayden's 6'0,190 LB frame bodes well for being a very durable dual-threat QB, who can take a beating and still deliver in the clutch. They also both have a devout faith in God that is unbreakable, but that is an entire story for another day. You start to see why Ironton has become a popular destination for college recruiters, when you study the style of offense they have their players running at a very young age. Tayden is very fun to watch operating in a RPO style spread attack and is extremely nifty with his pump fakes, as he is able to make reads decisively and can create magic with his legs if a play breaks down. In the screen-shot below. Tayden can be seen reading the DT penetrating the gap and quickly is able to pull the football, while being able to quickly outflank the defense by tossing a dart to his receiving target for a touchdown. After evaluating thousands of Quarterbacks the past five years, I haven't found many that are as technically refined in all facets of what it takes to excel in multiple college style schemes like top 2023 QB recruit Tayden Carpenter.
