Quinten Dormady completed 228 of 372 passes (61%) for 3,010 yards and 27 touchdowns as a sophomore and was voted District 27 Offensive Player of the Year. After the season, he suffered a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder while playing baseball—an injury that caused him to miss his entire junior year. He’s healthy headed into his senior year and saw his recruiting stock soar after attending summer camps at Alabama and Tennessee. Dormady picked up an offer from Alabama at one of their camps in early June, just days before visiting Tennessee for a QB clinic. Butch Jones offered Dormady at that clinic and he committed June 9th. He made his way back to campus on June 21st for “Orange Carpet Day.” Dormady enrolled in January.

RTI Average: 4-stars

 How He Fits

Dormady has all the measurables of an elite quarterback prospect. His tall frame has room to add bulk and he’s lighter on his feet than you’d think. He won’t beat you with his legs, but moves well within the pocket. His sophomore tape shows that he has the arm to push the ball downfield and fit it into tight windows. He sees the field very well and makes quick decisions. His release, though consistent, could get faster. Dormady is a very good QB prospect whose game should translate at the next level as he’s only going to get stronger and more fundamentally sound as he returns to the field this fall.
