National signing day wrapped up Wednesday, and a number of teams across the country locked down talented quarterbacks. While there's no way to predict if any of them will see the field immediately, a few are good enough to play right away.

While that used to be a rarity, we're seeing high school signal-callers arrive ready for the next level like never before. Just last season, true freshmen such as Texas A&M Conner Weigman and Clemson's Cade Klubnik saw significant playing time. Trevor Lawrence, Bo Nix, Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson all started as true freshmen too.

Let's run through some QBs in the 2023 recruiting class who might have a shot at doing the same. While we're not guaranteeing they will see the field in 2023, they are talented enough to, and a lot of them are stepping into a favorable depth-chart situation to potentially earn starts at some point during the season.


Missouri QB Gabarri Johnson

Missouri head coach Eli Drinkwitz has some talented options to consider at quarterback next season. One of those is 4-star recruit Gabarri Johnson, who is the No. 23 signal-caller in the 2023 class. Landing him was big for Drinkwitz, who managed to hold on to Johnson's May commitment, even though his home-state school, Washington, offered him.

Over Johnson's last two seasons at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Washington, he threw for 4,272 yards and 52 touchdowns with just six interceptions, per Max Preps. During his senior season, he rushed for a whopping 1,458 yards and 19 touchdowns.

"Gabarri was a born leader, and that's something at that position you've got to always be excited about," Drinkwitz told reporters in December. "He's a playmaker with his feet and his arm ... he's got the ability to throw and he's an accurate passer, but he's also got that 'B-button' quickness and shake-and-bake ability."

Johnson will compete for the starting job alongside last year's starter, Brady Cook. During the Tigers' 6-7 season, Cook threw for 2,739 yards and 14 touchdowns with seven interceptions. Following the campaign, the junior underwent shoulder surgery, so he'll spend the offseason rehabbing.

Sophomore Sam Horn is on Missouri's roster, too, as are walk-ons Dylan Laible, Tommy Lock and Brett Brown. Perhaps Cook's injury will open the door slightly for Johnson, but Cook has an edge from an experience standpoint.
