There’s a reason that Kaidon Salter is the only quarterback the Tennessee Vols have had eyes for during the 2021 recruiting cycle.
It’s because he’s a really impressive player — more impressive than his rating likely indicates.
Salter is rated by 247Sports as the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation.
But he’s much more than just a threat with his legs. And that’s something former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer learned this week at the Elite 11 Finals in Nashville (where 20 of the nation’s top high school quarterbacks are competing).
Here’s what Dilfer had to say about checking out Salter (via 247Sports).
“Way more organized as a passer than his tape showed,” Dilfer said. “He was really, really clean and there is some juice in that body, wow! It wouldn’t surprise me if he can take one step and 360 dunk. He has that kind of juice in his body. Super coachable, they threw these inside seam shots, right, left, one high, benders, stay skinny and they cross. First rep may not have been perfect and I watch the second rep and his correction rep was money time after time after time.”
Salter has seen his ranking shoot up quite a bit this spring/summer.
It wouldn’t surprise if he’s knocking on the door of five-star status by December/early next year.
The Vols landed an absolute stud in Salter. Now they have to make sure they keep other programs from trying to steal him.
