From 247: all that is left is 1 walk-through practice so they ranked their top performers from the first 3 practices. Of course Nico made the list.
Nico Iamaleava, QB- Tennessee
No one came in to this week with more hype than Iamaleava and he has definitely lived up to it. We’ve said it 1,000 times but we’ll say it again, he has arguably the highest ceiling of any quarterback in this year’s loaded ’23 class and it’s tough to imagine a scenario where he doesn’t succeed at Tennessee. Physically, he has all the arm talent you could want and is a high level athlete as well. He’s a tough kid who can beat you in multiple ways and has drawn raves from his coaches this week for his leadership, work ethic and how coachable he has been.
