The 9 Best 2016 QB Recruits And Which Schools They Will Play For

With National Signing Day just one day away, it's time to take a look at the top QB prospects that could change the course of a program over the next four years. Quarterbacks get a ton of attention, and the top prospects have offers from nearly every major program. This list is based on 247Sports' composite rankings. With that in mind, here are The 9 Best 2016 QB Recruits And Which Schools They Will Play For:

9. Jack Allison - Miami Hurricanes
Allison was so set on joining the Hurricanes that he signed a grant-in-aid agreement all the way back in August. He's a four-star recruit, the No. 8 pro-style QB and the No. 147 overall player. The Hurricanes kept him in-state and he'll likely take over for Brad Kaaya when Kaaya leaves. 

8. Dwayne Haskins - Ohio State Buckeyes
Haskins was committed to Maryland, but he announced a few weeks ago that he flipped to the Buckeyes, helping OSU take over the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation in the process. He's the No. 80 overall player and the No. 7 pro-style QB. The Buckeyes snagged from the state of Maryland, where he was the No. 3 overall player. 

7. Jarrett Guarantano - Tennessee Volunteers
Guarantano is the top and only dual-threat QB on this list. He's the No. 72 overall player in the class and the No. 3 player from New Jersey. He'll likely take over for Joshua Dobbs after Dobbs' time at Tennessee is complete. 

6. Brandon Peters - Michigan Wolverines 
Another four-star recruit, Peters is the No. 6 pro-style QB and the No. 67 overall player. He's already enrolled at Michigan and he'll at least have a chance to compete for the starting job. While he's unlikely to win it, Peters might just by the QB of the future in Ann Arbor. 

5. Malik Henry - Florida State Seminoles
Like Peters, Henry has already enrolled at Florida State. He's a four-star recruit and the No. 54 player in the class of 2016. Henry likely won't start next season, and might not even play, but he has a chance to be the starting QB at FSU before he graduates. 

4. Feleipe Franks - Florida Gators 
Franks was a LSU commit, but the Gators managed to flip him at the end of November. He's the No. 49 player in this class and has already enrolled at Florida. With the Gators hurting at QB, Franks could be the starter in the season opener. 

3. K.J. Costello - Stanford Cardinal
Costello checks in at No. 46 overall and he appears to be the future at QB for Stanford. He's been committed since March. He's the No. 8 player in the state of California and has a bright future. 

2. Jacob Eason - Georgia Bulldogs
The Bulldogs nearly lost Eason after the firing of Mark Richt, but managed to keep one of the two five-star QBs in the class. Eason is the No. 5 overall player, but still trails on QB. He enrolled at Georgia last week. He'll have a shot at winning the starting job. 

1. Shea Patterson - Ole Miss Rebels 
Every program in the nation wanted Patterson, but Ole Miss landed him. The five-star recruit has been committed since February and is the No. 4 player in the nation. Chad Kelly will remain the starter for the Rebels, but it should be Patterson's show after Kelly leaves.
