Shea Patterson (committed to Ole Miss) and Jacob Eason (committed to UGA) are rated as the No. 1 and No. 2 high school quarterbacks in the nation, respectively.
Who has the stronger arm?
Perhaps few would have better insight than Isaac Nauta, the nation’s No. 1-rated tight end who plays at Florida’s IMG Academy with Patterson.
Nauta, who de-committed from FSU this past summer, is undecided and has worked out on several occasions with Eason at camps. UGA is considered to be the school to beat for Nauta.
So who has the stronger arm? It’s a close call.
“I went on to say that Jacob had the stronger arm because he can throw it a mile,” Nauta said. “But Shea was definitely the more mobile and the better out-of-the-pocket guy. They both have their strengths and what they have to work on.”
Eason, who plays at Washington’s Lake Stevens High School, heard about the comments and reached out to Nauta about them.
“He (Eason) was like ‘Thanks, bro for that comment or whatever,” Nauta said. “He’s just a funny guy and we stay in contact.”
“The thing is Shea would tell you too that Jacob just has got one of those arms. He can throw the deep ball as well as anybody, but then Jacob will tell you that Shea is the more mobile guy. Both are great quarterbacks, but Jacob did hit me up about that and told me that he appreciated my comment.”
