2024 QB Rankings: Dylan Raiola Tops the Class of 2024 Quarterbacks

The Class of 2024 QB Rankings are indicative of one thing: talent. This group has a bevy of marquee skills and should continue to turn heads.

Utilizing the CFN Fusion for the Class of 2024, let’s take a look at the top quarterbacks of the next generation. The top 2024 QB rankings are taken directly from the CFN Fusion and showcase just how talented this group could be at the next level.

Class of 2024 QB Rankings

The Class of 2024 is an intriguing mix of top-tier talent and incredible value throughout. With a ways to go until National Signing Day, the Class of 2024 has taken shape as summer approaches.

There is a lot to learn about this class as well as a full senior season, but one thing is certain: this class is loaded.

As certain as that may be, one question does remain:

Who is the top QB in the class of 2024?

Dylan Raiola reigns supreme over the rest of the quarterbacks as the prized gem of the class itself. No. 1 on three of the industry-standard rankings, Raiola is one of the top-ranked recruits we’ve seen in some time.

The consensus No. 1 quarterback on the board, Raiola committed and has since de-committed from Ohio State and remains the king of the crop in 2024 even with his new commitment to Georgia.

1) Dylan Raiola, Pinnacle High School

College: Georgia
: Phoenix, Arizona
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 230
CFN Fusion Grade: 99.951
Position Rank: 1
State Rank: 1
Overall Rank: 1

Raiola is the cream of the crop of the quarterback class, enriching the stable of Arizona-based quarterbacks over the past decade or so. With offers from over 25 of the top programs across the country, Raiola was formerly committed to Ohio State in the summer of 2022.

He de-committed from Ohio State and re-opened his recruitment as the year came to a close in 2022, allowing the offers to start piling up the past few months. He chose Georgia in the middle of May, seven months before National Signing Day.

There is so much to like about his game, including his verified measurables, arm strength, pocket presence, and general field awareness for a rising high school senior. He’ll be the pinnacle of the class as he lands as the No. 1 player overall on the CFN Fusion for 2024.

2) Julian Sayin, Carlsbad High School

College: Alabama
: Carlsbad, California
Height: 6’1″
Weight: 195
CFN Fusion Grade: 99.733
Position Rank: 2
State Rank: 1
Overall Rank: 10

An Alabama commit, Julian Sayin is ready to continue the trend of California kids making the trek to Tuscaloosa. After committing to the Crimson Tide in November of last year, Sayin has been relatively quiet and seemingly solid in his commitment to ‘Bama.

A lengthy signal-caller with plenty of juice in his arm, Sayin broke onto the national stage two years ago and hasn’t looked back.

3) DJ Lagway, Willis High School

College: Florida
: Willis, Texas
Height: 6’2.5″
Weight: 225
CFN Fusion Grade: 99.483
Position Rank: 3
State Rank: 4
Overall Rank: 20

A large-framed quarterback with a lot of upside, DJ Lagway has piled on the offers recently. Lagway is a three-sport star and is reportedly hoping to play baseball in college as well.

Despite being a Baylor legacy, Lagway committed to Florida in December of last year and hasn’t looked back. He’s still ascending as a prospect and could raise his final CFN Fusion grade even higher come the end of the cycle.

4) Jadyn Davis, Providence Day School

College: Michigan
: Charlotte, North Carolina
Height: 6’0.5″
Weight: 190
CFN Fusion Grade: 99.278
Position Rank: 4
State Rank: 1
Overall Rank: 28

The top player in the state of North Carolina, Jadyn Davis is committed to the Michigan Wolverines despite receiving over 30 offers across the country. Davis is no stranger to beautiful downfield passes or making something out of nothing with his off-platform ability.

His commitment to Michigan came in March as Davis has drawn much more interest since the turn of the new year. A transfer to Charlotte’s Providence Day School, Davis threw for over 3,400 yards last season and should continue to turn heads.

5) CJ Carr, Saline High School

College: Notre Dame
: Saline, Michigan
Height: 6’2.5″
Weight: 195
CFN Fusion Grade: 98.840
Position Rank: 5
State Rank: 1
Overall Rank: 45

Standing a lengthy 6’2.5″, CJ Carr has seen his recruiting profile take off since taking over just two seasons ago. He stands tall in the pocket and uses his height and arm strength well to find open receivers downfield.

Carr has committed to Notre Dame despite being a family legacy to archrival Michigan. He is the grandson of former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr.

6) Jake Merklinger, Calvary Day School

College: Tennessee
: Savannah, Georgia
Height: 6’3″
CFN Fusion Grade: 98.518
Position Rank: 6
State Rank: 9
Overall Rank: 60

The first of the two top-10 quarterbacks that call Savannah home, Jake Merklinger is surprisingly athletic for his large frame. When it comes down to it, though, the name of the game for Merklinger is his downfield accuracy and pure arm talent. It may not be the strongest arm, but he understands how to use it incredibly well.

Merklinger has a bevy of highlights in his 11-1 season with Calvary Day last year, and that includes multiple sports (basketball, lacrosse).

7) Air Noland, Langston Hughes High School

College: Ohio State
: Fairburn, Georgia
Height: 6’2.5″
Weight: 185
CFN Fusion Grade: 98.445
Position Rank: 7
State Rank: 10
Overall Rank: 64

In the running for the best name for a quarterback, Air Noland has taken the spot vacated by Raiola’s decommitment with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Despite his verified track speed, Noland has thrown for over 8,000 yards and 100 touchdowns in his three seasons at Langston Hughes.

The first thing that jumps out from Noland’s tape is his left-handed motion that gets footballs out in a heartbeat. He’s incredibly talented as an athlete and should continue to see his profile on the rise.

8) Elijah Brown, Mater Dei High School, Santa Ana, California

College: Stanford
: Santa Ana, California
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 180
CFN Fusion Grade: 98.345
Position Rank: 8
State Rank: 7
Overall Rank: 70

There is maturity around Elijah Brown’s game, maybe because he’s been playing for one of the best high school teams in the country, on the biggest of stages, for three seasons now. Brown has a great arm and perhaps better pocket presence.

He’ll take over games with his leadership as well as his on-field talent and can put his future college in a better position to win with just his placement on the roster.

9) Walker White, Little Rock Christian Academy

College: Auburn
: Little Rock, Arkansas
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 225
CFN Fusion Grade: 97.799
Position Rank: 9
State Rank: 1
Overall Rank: 97

With terrific size and even better athleticism, Walker White is a future college star. White has totaled over 2,000 passing yards in each of his last two seasons at the helm of Little Rock Christian Academy while running for 1,381 yards and 21 touchdowns as well.

His commitment to Auburn came in February of 2023 and would be the crown jewel of the Tigers’ 2024 class if they can keep him on board.

10) Luke Kromenhoek, Benedictine Military School

College: Florida State
: Savannah, Georgia
Height: 6’2.5″
Weight: 190
CFN Fusion Grade: 96.389
Position Rank: 10
State Rank: 25
Overall Rank: 149

The first ACC school to be represented here, Florida State secured Luke Kromenhoek’s commitment in March of 2022. All he’s done since then was lead Benedictine Military School to a state championship.

Seemingly steadfast in his commitment to the Seminoles, Kromenhoek can build on his already-solid recruiting base with another dominant season in 2023.
