Three Louisiana quarterbacks stepping into the limelight

Louisiana Rising: Emerging Quarterback Prospects in the Class of 2027

The state of Louisiana has long been known as a hotbed for producing top college and NFL talent. The 2025 and 2026 classes have been receiving a lot of attention for their impressive five-star and four-star prospects, but it’s the upcoming class of 2027 that has caught the eye of many recruiting experts.

Traditionally, Louisiana has been known for producing skilled players and strong linemen, with the occasional standout quarterback. However, with the emergence of some young talent in the state, the class of 2027 is shaping up to potentially produce a number of elite quarterback prospects.

One of the standout prospects in the class of 2027 is Houston, who is already drawing interest from top programs such as Texas A&M, Arkansas, TCU, and more. Despite his smaller frame at 6-foot, 192 pounds, Houston possesses a smooth delivery and pinpoint accuracy. He impressed scouts at the Elite 11 Regional in Austin and stood out at the Dallas Rivals camp, earning him recognition as one of the top prospects in the state and country.

Another promising quarterback in the class of 2027 is Elijah Haven from Baton Rouge (La.) Dunham School. Haven, standing at 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, is an athletic quarterback with immense potential. While he will need refinement in his mechanics and ball placement, his size and athleticism make him an intriguing prospect. Already holding offers from schools like Florida, Ole Miss, and Miami, Haven’s growth and development will be closely monitored as he continues to showcase his skills at camps and in front of college coaches.

Malachi Zeigler, hailing from Benton, Louisiana, is another exciting quarterback prospect in the class of 2027. Known for his impressive arm strength, Zeigler has yet to receive any offers but has garnered interest from programs like LSU, Mississippi State, and Tulane. Standing at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Zeigler’s size and throwing ability make him a prospect to watch as he continues to develop and attract attention from college programs.

As these young quarterbacks in Louisiana continue to refine their skills and attract interest from college programs, the class of 2027 is shaping up to be a talent-rich group with the potential to produce elite quarterbacks at the next level. Stay tuned as these rising stars make their mark on the recruiting landscape and strive to reach their full potential in the years to come.
