Elite 11 gives fans and recruiting evaluators the opportunity to see the next big wave of elite college quarterbacks. And the Elite 11 does a great job displaying the future as well as making top prospects improve their overall game.
Quarterbacks Tim Tebow, Teddy Bridgewater and Vince Young are just three of the many signal callers to compete in the coveted Elite 11.
Former Super Bowl winning quarterback Trent Dilfer is the mastermind behind the event that is becoming bigger every year. Dilfer is very hands on during the event, as you will see on TV.
You can watch the competition today, tomorrow and Wednesday on ESPNU.
Here is the list of committed SEC quarterbacks competing:
- Kyle Allen, Texas A&M
- Drew Barker, Kentucky
- KJ Carta-Samuels, Vanderbilt
- David Cornwell, Alabama
- Will Grier, Florida
- Jacob Park, Georgia
Two quarterbacks are standing out in practice this week – Allen and Cornwell.
Texas A&M commit Kyle Allen continues to be one of the best pro-style quarterbacks in the country. He’s known as one of the most consistent signal callers who doesn’t make high school mistakes, via SBNation.com.
“Kyle has been incredibly consistent,” Dilfer said. “He does a great job of playing in the moment, and getting to know the kid a bunch, that’s something he had to overcome. He used to be really hard on himself, and he’s really found a unique way to let it go. That’s why he doesn’t compound mistakes. He’s very pliable in his learning.”
Allen reminds me a lot of Alabama’s AJ McCarron, especially in his mental makeup and his ability to limit mistakes.
Alabama commit David Cornwell certainly passes the eye test at 6-5, 230 pounds. Cornwell is physically the most gifted high school quarterback in the country. He’s mobile enough inside and outside the pocket while having a Howitzer for an arm.
Another very impressive quarterback and one to watch is Florida commit Will Grier. He’s the future for the Gators under center, and he has all the tools to make all the big-time throws.
Check out the Elite 11 tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
