Bo Nix (6'2/210) of Pinson Valley High School in Alabama is one of the highest rated quarterbacks in the country. He has good size and is strong in the pocket. He excels at moving his feet and throwing the ball on the run.
In the Auburn system, he is a good fit because of his size and mobility. He's a thick kid that could easily play in the 220+ range at Auburn, making him capable of taking hits when necessary to run the ball.
Make no mistake though, he's a passer first. When Nix scrambles, he's not looking to pull the ball down and run for yardage. He's looking to extend the play and find a receiver.
Nix has led his team to an 11-1 record and faces Clay-Chalkville in the semi-finals of the State Playoffs. Nix and Pinson Valley beat Clay-Chalkville 28-21 on September 14th.
