German impressive at Elite 11

Cy-Woods quarterback Nate German wanted to turn in a good performance at the Dallas Elite 11. He did just that by catching the eyes of several onlookers.

Cy-Woods quarterback Nate German entered the Elite 11 last Saturday at Cowboys Stadium as a virtual unknown. That's not to say German isn't on the radar of any programs, he's actually getting some good interest.

Arizona, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Rice, Oklahoma State, Kansas and TCU (where he attended a junior day) are among the schools showing the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder interest. That's not bad considering German was not the full-time as a junior. In limited action German still produced close to 1,000 yards of offense.

With limited exposure on the gridiron as a junior, German is focused on hitting the camp circuit to get his name more known. If his performance from the Elite 11 is any indication, German is well on his way of getting that accomplished.

"I enjoyed it a lot. I see a lot of these guys and read all about them that are highly touted quarterbacks that have got offered and some are already committed and I believe I can compete with them," German said. "I didn't have as much playing time last year as a junior but I really enjoyed coming out here and showing the coached and proving to myself that I can play with some of the top quarterbacks in the country."

With an explosive list of top competitors in attendance, German opened some eyes with his performance displaying a strong and accurate arm. Although he didn't take home top honors, German walked away knowing he had a good workout.

"I felt like I did really well in all of the individual drills. I followed my footwork as well and released the ball well," German said. "Overall I think I had a good performance.

"They had some great coaches; I didn't expect them to have the coaches they had out there. They gave me a lot of little tips on things I was doing wrong, lengthen my stride and keep my ball up. Little things like that I can take back to school and work on."

German attended a TCU junior day on March 11th and since that visit the Frogs have been the early favorite for his services. German continues to stay in contact with TCU and hopes to impress them enough in the spring to garner an offer.

"I keep in touch with a lot of their coaches, Coach Burns, Coach Williamson and Coach Patterson through Facebook and they're saying they really like what they see and they continue to like me more and more on film and enjoyed having me down," he said. "They can't wait to come see me throw so that's what I'm working for right now. Hopefully I can impress them enough to see about an offer."
