SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The East and West teams were back on the field Thursday for one morning practice in preparation for the 2022 All-American Bowl. The long-running, prestigious event annually brings in around 100 of the nation’s top senior prospects.

The two teams are geographically split into East and West. The game is set to be played on Saturday, January 8 at 12 P.M. in the Alamodome and televised on NBC.

On Thursday the East and West teams practiced at different locations and at a slower pace than Wednesday. On3 was on hand at both practices.

Here are On3’s quarterback rankings for the day by team, with Clemson signee Cade Klubnik having his best day this week. 

West Team Quarterbacks

Devin BrownOhio State: The West practice moved at a relatively slow speed on Thursday. With that said, Brown continued to show off his arm talent — which is some of the best in the 2022 cycle. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder was effortlessly ripping throws tot he boundary. He throws a very tight ball that cuts through the air. Brown had a nice off-platform throw across his body to C.J. Williams in 11-on-11 work that was a nice encapsulation of his physical ability. Most of Brown’s misses were high or deep. He’s certainly not lacking for arm talent. 

Cade Klubnik – Clemson: We thought Klubnik may have had his best day of the week on Thursday. The Clemson signee was decisive and made quick decisions. He had one of the best throws in the 7-on-7 session, hitting Williams on a deep out route, fitting the ball over zone coverage. Klubnik’s delivery and intermediate passes have been consistent throughout the week.

Justyn MartinUCLA: The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder continued to work as the third-team quarterback for the West on Thursday. Martin looks to have settled in a bit and has established a nice rapport with Notre Dame signee Tobias Merriweather. The two connected on a few deep balls in Thursday’s session. Martin has a strong arm and likes to push the ball vertically. He’s still a bit of a work in progress in the short to intermediate passing game. 

East Team Quarterbacks

Drew AllarPenn State: There continues to be a clear difference between Allar and the other quarterbacks on the East Team in terms of stature, arm talent and quickest release. Allar continues to display anticipation and accuracy in the intermediate passing game. Receivers don’t come out of a break and wait on the ball when Allar is delivering passes. He’s making throws to all three levels with confidence and high-end accuracy. He has not forced the ball into coverage much at all this week. 

Gunner StocktonGeorgia: Stockton continues to show he has the arm talent needed to deliver the ball in the intermediate and vertical passing game. He has the arm strength to rip the ball down the field after a forced reset. Throwing opposite hash mark outs and square ins are effortless. Stockton never has to load up to deliver a pass anywhere on the field. The future Bulldogs signal caller moves with ideal balance to create accurate passes on the move. 

Jayden DenegalMichigan: The California native was more comfortable in his second day with the East Team. The length and speed of the release continues to be an issue that will have to be addressed in Ann Arbor. The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder delivered more catchable balls in the intermediate game today vs Wednesday.
