He attended Baylor's football camp on Sunday, and he showed why he is one of the state's most talented signal callers. Come inside to see what Bridwell had to say about the camp, Baylor, and our analysis of his camp performance.

Some players just have that ability. The ability to perform in any circumstance. One particular Baylor camper did just that. Parker Bridwell, a 6'4" quarterback out of Hereford, Texas, is a 3 star prospect that ranks as Scout.com's 88th best QB in the nation. He attended Baylor's football camp on Sunday, and he showed why he is one of the state's most talented signal callers. BearsIllustrated.com caught up with Bridwell to get his take on the camp held on Baylor's campus on Sunday.

"I learned how to make my release shorter and faster. I took out some of the movements I had in my release."

Bridwell talks about his recruitment up to this point.

"I have been talking to TCU, I have gotten some mail from Baylor, and UTEP has been talking to me. I have an offer from New Mexico State. I am also getting letters from Miami and Oregon. I am interested in all of them right now."

What his biggest strength on the football field is:

"Leadership. They know I am going to give it my all on every play."

The biggest thing he needs to do to improve:

"Probably the weight room. I just need to get bigger."

OUR TAKE:

Bridwell stands tall in the pocket, and on Sunday showed he has more than enough arm strength to make any pass he needed to make. On Sunday, he often teamed up with highly touted wide receiver Eddie Johnson (a Baylor commitment) during one on one drills. The two connected on nearly every pass, and made it look easy.

Bridwell definitely has the leadership qualities he talks about. He works well with others and was often positively speaking to those around him.

From a physical standpoint, Bridwell needs to add solid weight, if nothing else to get stronger running the football. He possesses good quickness, and maintained control on rollout passes. Footwork is good, and Bridwell shows great awareness in running the zone-read and option.

There is no doubt his arm strength and easy to catch spirals are his biggest strength. He was spot on accurate in Sunday's camp.

Other than the weight room, Bridwell will likely have to continue working on his release and release point. He has a true gunslinger's mentality and good mobility outside the pocket. However, at the next level, a more consistent release point and quicker arm motion may be crucial to his development. Bridwell definitely lived up to his lofty ranking on Sunday.
