Scouting Report

Evaluated 12/02/2022

Gabe Brooks National Scouting Analyst


Hendon Hooker Tennessee Volunteers

Broad-torsoed, stoutly built quarterback with ready-to-play physical tools. Legitimately 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds with corresponding short-to-intermediate throw velocity.

Rips the ball in those portions of the field and drives it to the perimeter. Ball gets out fairly quickly. Explosive over-the-middle intermediate juice. Big-handed with ability to manipulate throw path late in delivery.

Shows the requisite vertical arm strength and still should see downfield power capacity increase with continued development. Accuracy improved in junior season, as evidenced by big jump in completion percentage (12+ points).

Dynamic running threat, whether improvisationally or by design. Open-field galloper with run strength that corresponds to size. Functional athleticism fosters big-play threat. Also displays close-quarters suddenness and lateral twitch to stack moves and extend runs in traffic.

Excellent multi-sport athletic profile. Baseball standout who has also played basketball at the varsity level. Widely considered a two-sport (football / baseball) prospect at the Power Five level. Baseball experience likely influences arm-angle nuance and off-platform throwing power. Good football pedigree as father played running back at Baylor.

In-pocket delivery can be a bit low at times. Can sync feet and upper body more consistently to maximize natural power. Sometimes understandably trusts immense arm strength at the expense of throwing flat-footed. Still developing touch-throw discernment with dialing back velocity and delivering with more nuance when needed.

Through his junior season, looks firmly in the discussion among the top quarterbacks nationally in the 2024 recruiting cycle. Projects to the high-major level as a potential impact starter for multiple seasons with a long-term NFL Draft early-round ceiling.

Athletic Background

Also plays baseball and basketball. Hopes to play baseball in college as well.
Averaged 4.9 ppg, 6.2 rpg, and 1.6 bpg for varsity basketball as a freshman in 2020-21 season.

2021: Starting QB as a sophomore. Led Willis to a 6-6 record and a Texas 6A D-II second-round playoff appearance. Threw for 1,579 yards, 17 TDs, two INTs on a 55.5 completion percentage (137 of 247). Added 129-710-6 rushing (5.5 ypc).
2020: Played safety on varsity as a freshman. Recorded 18 tackles (1 TFL). Also got limited snaps at QB.
