The National Radar Class of 2023 QB's from the DMV that you should know
The National Radar takes a look at some of the Class of 2023 quarterbacks from the DMV (D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) area that are some of the top names to know. This list will grow in the upcoming months, but these are the quarterbacks who are currently making the most noise right now. This is based on how the quarterbacks did on the football field and based on their current recruitment. We'll have another list of Class of 2023 quarterbacks from the DMV that we'll feature in the near future.
Aiden Dixon | 5-10 | 175 | MD
Dixon completed 145-of-231 passes for 2,549 yards, 26 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 11 games last season. Wait. There’s more. He also carried the football 140 times for 1,347 yards (9.6 yards per carry), and one touchdown.
Ashton Gaddis | 6-2 | 230 | MD
Cody Shelton | 5-11 | 190 | VA
Shelton took a visit to William & Mary back on Feb. 26. During the 2021 season, he completed 90-of-141 passes for 1,640 yards, 16 touchdowns, and four interceptions in ten games last season. Shelton also showed what he could do with his legs as he gained 410 yards and scored 11 touchdowns on 68 carries last season.
Connor Lange | 6-2 | 200 | VA
Lange completed 124-of-190 passes for 1,523 yards, 22 touchdowns, and four interceptions in 11 games last season. The dual-threat quarterback also carried the football 54 times for 457 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Meads completed 86-of-175 passes for 1,367 yards, 17 touchdowns, and six interceptions in nine games last season.
Daniel Lipovski | 6-1 | 175 | VA
Lipovski completed 155-of-270 passes for 2,654 yards, 31 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 12 games last season. He racked up an additional 305 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. It’ll be interesting to see how his recruitment goes this offseason. Lipovski had arguably the best season out of any quarterback in Virginia.
Gabriel Wansart | 5-10 | 182 | VA
Wansart completed 104-of-200 passes for 1,466 yards, 20 touchdowns, and seven interceptions in 10 games last season.
George White | 6-1 | 195 | VA
White completed 152-of-256 passes for 2,379 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 11 games last season.
Kendell Anderson | 6-3 | 181 | MD
Anderson, a dual-sport athlete who plays football and baseball, completed 114-of-207 passes for 2,277 yards, 17 touchdowns, and seven interceptions in 11 games last season. He also carried the football 83 times for 304 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
Here was my scouting report on Anderson after a live evaluation back in January:
I was impressed on the velocity that Anderson put on his passes throughout the event. He has a good upper-body twitch when he throws the football which allows for a fast release.
Anderson has an offer from Morgan State.
Kevin O’Connor | 6-4 | 215 | MD
O’Connor completed 127-of-253 passes for 1,869 yards, 17 touchdowns, and six interceptions in nine games last season. He also carried the football 121 times for 654 yards and eight touchdowns.
Kevin White | 6-0 | 180 | VA
White has offers from Campbell, Duke, Marshall, and Virginia Tech.
Mason Cumbie | 6-1 | 180 | VA
Cumbie has offers from Old Dominion and Kent State. He completed 93-of-193 passes for 1,525 yards, 19 touchdowns, and eight interceptions in `0 games last season. He added an impressive 615 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on 85 carries.
Nathan Keast | 5-10 | 160 | VA
Keast completed 112-of-226 passes for 1,857 yards, 22 touchdowns, and eight interceptions this past season.
Noah Brannock | 6-0 | 205 | MD
Brannock completed 116-of-193 passes for 1,853 yards and 25 touchdowns during the 2021 season. I had a chance to evaluate Brannock in person back in January. His footwork and overall quarterback mechanics are the best that I've seen so far during the offseason. He was solid during the Pro Day portion of the event and stayed in rhythm with his throws. College coaches will be impressed with his arm strength and mobility in the pocket. Brannock has active and agile feet which offer quick setups and resets. He received his first Division I offer from Fordham this week. He’s visited Monmouth, William & Mary, and Yale within the past month.
