After a three-day competition over the weekend that pitted the 25 best high school quarterbacks in the country against each other in a series of drills and evaluations, this year's Elite 11 Finals class was announced on Monday morning. The 12 winners will head to Nike's The Opening camp in Portland on June 28 to battle it out and determine who is truly the best high school QB in the nation. Check out the finalists below.
Trevor Lawrence - Cartersville (Georgia) High School
— Scott Schrader (@Scott_Schrader) June 3, 2017
Lawrence, who's committed to Clemson, has long held the No. 1 overall ranking for quarterbacks, and his performance at the Elite 11 did nothing to change that. He's got a huge arm, plays in a pro style offense at his high school and has incredible golden flowing locks to boot.
Justin Fields - Harrison (Georgia) High School
— QBHitList.com (@QBHitList) June 4, 2017
Ranked fourth overall in the ESPN 300, Fields, who is headed to Penn State, is the top dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2018
Tanner McKee - Centennial (California) High School
Pump fake #GotEem!
— Damon Sayles (@DamonSayles) February 4, 2017
McKee remains the top uncommitted quarterback in the class of 2018. At 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds and 72 percent completion rate from last season, this pro style passer will be a coup for whatever college ends up reaping the benefits of his abilities.
Jack Tuttle - Mission Hills (California) High School
— Blair Angulo (@bangulo) June 3, 2017
Headed to Utah, Tuttle was praised as one of the most accurate passers throughout the weekend at the Elite 11.
Devin Leary - Timber Creek (New Jersey) Regional High School
— Steve Wiltfong (@SWiltfong247) April 23, 2017
Leary posted the best score during the "Pro Day" section of the Elite 11, in which the QBs ran through a gauntlet of drills designed to emulate what they'll eventually do when it's time to work out for NFL teams later in their careers. He's headed to N.C. State.
Tyler Shough - Hamilton (Arizona) High School
— Steve Wiltfong (@SWiltfong247) March 12, 2017
Currently undecided on where he'll play college ball, the 6-foot-5 Shough is being heavily recruited by schools like Michigan, Alabama and South Carolina.
Cammon Cooper - Lehi (Utah) High School
— Blair Angulo (@bangulo) June 2, 2017
Committed to Washington State, Cooper has earned comparisons to former Boise State passer Kellen Moore for how he throws the football—and his southpaw delivery.
Quincy Patterson - Solorio Academy (Illinois) High School
— Gus Ramos (@G1Bound) April 14, 2017
Another dual-threat QB, Patterson is headed to Virginia Tech, where he'll follow in the footsteps of similar style quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Tyrod Taylor.
Jarren Williams - Central Gwinnett (Georgia) High School
— Hudl (@Hudl) May 18, 2017
This dual-threat QB is headed to Kentucky, where he'll bring his quick feet and smooth delivery to Big Blue Nation.
Matt Corral - Long Beach (California) Polytechnic High School
— Scott Schrader (@Scott_Schrader) June 5, 2017
Corral, headed to USC, appears to be wise beyond his years with his ability to read defenses and go through his progressions at a high level as he heads into his senior year of high school.
Justin Rogers - Parkway (Louisiana) High School
— MT RecruitTheBoot (@recruittheboot) June 4, 2017
The best quarterback in his class from Louisiana, Rogers is a dual-threat guy whose skills should translate nicely at TCU, where he recently committed.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson - Bishop Gorman (Nevada) High School
— Blair Angulo (@bangulo) June 4, 2017
After sitting behind Elite 11 alum Tate Martell for several seasons at Bishop Gorman, Thompson-Robinson will finally get his time to shine as a starter in his senior season before heading off to UCLA.
