Aaron McLaughlin is a 6’4” 225 pro style quarterbacking dynamo from Denmark high school in Alpharetta, Georgia. Shortly after Miami and new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee offered the gunslinger, McLaughlin decommitted from Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers.

The state of Georgia has recently established a very high bar for quarterback play at the high school level. Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Deshaun Watson, and Jake Fromm are just a recent list of names who have parlayed from peach state promise to lime light status.
Now McLaughlin’s recent decommit status being a coincidence or not, he has the goods and is definitely worth our full and undivided attention. One of my biggest takeaways was McLaughlin’s very pristine and obvious firm grasp on the fundamentals. He has good footwork, balance and displays a natural and repeatable throwing delivery of the football.
McLaughlin seems poised to be the next Georgia boy to achieve grown man status on the college scene. Possessing the athleticism needed to keep defenses honest in the run game, this is a sure fire fit in any spread system to include Lashlee’s.
17 touchdowns vs. 7 interceptions, the height, the frame, the arm, the athleticism, the firm fundamental base, the ability to extend plays coupled with the freakish trait of rolling opposite side and throwing with tremendous getty-up? Roman Rank: 4 Star
State of the U’s “Student of the Game” is in full off season attack mode and focusing on recently offered quarterbacks for the 2021 cycle. The aforementioned McLaughlin is batting lead off this series and promptly goes deep on the first pitch. BANG!!!
