Greenlee staying patient on recruiting trail

Lincoln (Calif.) Stockton quarterback Zack Greenlee capped off a strong spring/summer with an impressive performance at the Elite 11 QB Camp over the weekend.

In a group of 24 quarterbacks, Zack Greenlee was the lone player at the event who has yet to make a college decision. In fact, the signal caller is sitting on just one lone offer from Fresno State but showed he definitely can play at a high level following the conclusion of the Elite 11 camp.

"Zack has all the tools and had a great week," Elite 1 head coach Trent Dilfer said. "He has as much talent as anyone and my hope going in to the week is Zack wouldn't try and do too much but just be himself because that's good enough. That's exactly what he did, he competed and excelled every day and deserved his spot in the final 11."

Greenlee is an intriguing prospect who is still developing. He's still growing and is noticeably bigger than he was just a year ago. His arm strength has improved, he can get the ball out quick and shows above average mobility as well.

"I had a great week, it was an incredible time," Greenlee said. "I learned a ton and loved meeting the other quarterbacks from all over the country. There are so many good memories and I'll for sure never forget the Navy Seals training we did at 4:00 AM in the morning.

"That was a life changing experience for me and I think it definitely bonded a lot of us together. We all learned a lot together, we quizzed each other on the playbook and like I said, it was just a great overall experience for me."

On the recruiting front, Greenlee said he plans to go through the recruiting process and doesn't want to rush a decision.

"My hope is this week will help me out and get me some more attention," Greenlee said. "Fresno State has offered me but I'm not hearing from any other schools right now. Hopefully this will pick up due to events like this and more schools will contact me.

"I want to focus on my team right now and go through the process. I think a few schools will want to see my first few games next season but I'm just going to take things slow and not rush in to anything."
