Alabama offers Elite 11 QB

Anthony Jennings, three-star quarterback from Marietta, Ga., missed his junior season due to a knee injury. He was recently invited to the Elite 11 after a stellar performance at the tryouts in Buford, Ga. His offer list has increased since the event including one this week from the 2011 BCS National Champions.



"It's a blessing to have the opportunity to go compete against the best in the country," said Anthony Jennings after the selection to the Elite 11. "When I found out it was overwhelming. It's just a blessing.

"I can't give all the credit to myself. I have to give credit to the people who helped get me back to 100-percent. I tore my meniscus in my right knee the first game of the season."

The University of Alabama extended an offer this week. The Tide is selective in their pursuit of signal callers.

"It's a big time offer," Jennings said. "They told me they have only offered five quarterbacks including me. They win championships. It's a great SEC program. They always do things right. It's possible I will visit this summer. I'll have to talk to my parents."

Jennings has collected several scholarship offers from across the country. He has yet to trim a list of favorites.

"I have about 20-25 offers now," he said. "Even before the Elite 11 I had about 16 offers. It's really picked up since then. Nebraska offered today. UNC, West Virginia and Virginia Tech have also recently offered.

"I plan on taking some trips this summer. I don't have anything set right now. I have to sit down with my parents and decide where we want to go. I don't have any favorites right now. I am wide open."
