Nick Saban still hasn’t decided who will be the starting quarterback for Alabama in 2015, but 5-star freshman Blake Barnett is already building his case.

The highly-touted recruit showed on Sunday that he has an actual cannon in place of where his right arm should be. Barnett posted a video of him standing on the 50 yard line at Husky Stadium in Washington and launching a pass clear through the uprights.

All told, the pass went a total of 70 yards with what looked like very little effort. Reports out of Tuscaloosa are that upon seeing the video, Lane Kiffin began drooling.
