The 2014 class in the state is strong at several positions but it has been awhile since the state has produced a quarterback class like the one coming up next year. Here's a look at the three big pro-style quarterbacks in the state in the class:

David Cornwell, Norman North

As a junior: Moved from Florida to Jones last year and had a huge year for the Longhorns, throwing for 2,742 yards and 27 touchdowns against just eight interceptions. He also ran for 755 yards and six touchdowns. He's moved to Norman North now, though he needs a waiver from the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association to be able to compete next year.

Recruiting status: Cornwell has offers from Auburn, Virginia Tech, Washington State, Indiana and Tulsa. He had a great outing at the U.S. Army Combine in January and has taken recent visits to Alabama, Michigan and UCLA.

Justice Hansen, Edmond Santa Fe

As a junior: Hansen entered his senior season as a highly sought-after prospect already and lived up to expectations, throwing for 3,079 yards and 36 touchdowns with nine interceptions. He also improved as a runner, with 773 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground.
