Orlando Elite 11: Top Performers

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - The Elite 11 regional tryout was in Florida Friday and Scout was there to evaluate the signal callers. Eight stood out and we break them down here...

Over 50 quarterbacks competed Friday at the Elite 11 Regional. Most signal callers play high school football in Florida and Scout's top eight performers come from the Sunshine State.

Deondre Francois, 3-star, Olympia, 2015
Arguably Frabcois was the top quarterback Friday. He has a very strong arm, almost too strong at times. The ball comes out of his hand fast and hot. He threw some lasers Friday afternoon, but he struggled when he was asked to put touch on the ball. When he missed, he missed high, but he he hit a lot of targets.

Feleipe Franks, 4-star, Wakulla, 2016
Franks has so much upside as he develops over the next two-plus years. He threw consistent spirals Friday and he it was fun to watch him throw the deep balls. He needs to work on his consistency and polish his mechanics.

Tanner Hearn, NR, East River, 2015
Nothing may have jumped out to blow anyone away when evaluating Hearn as a prospect, but he was consistent, very consistent Friday. He has a smooth delivery, he threw with good spin, and his passes were very catchable. Someone to keep an eye on.

Lamar Jackson, 3-Star, Boynton Beach, 2015
Jackson surprised Scout at how well he threw the ball. The kid can really spin it and showed a very lively arm with pretty good accuracy. He just needs to work on the little things, especially his footwork.

DeAndre Johnson, 3-star, First Coast, 2015
The Florida State commitment was solid again in this event. This young man loves to compete, he looks to learn, and he was solid in all phases this afternoon. He threw the ball well on the move and his shot, compact delivery stood out.

Dwayne Lawson, 4-star, Hillsborough
We thought he had an up and down performance. But this is a young man with a unique skill set when you look at his size and athletic ability. He does have a nice arm and good delivery.

Brycen Lee, NR, Lafayette, 2015
Lee was the big surprise. Scout loves the way he can throw the football. He has a long lean frame with plenty of room to develop and add bulk. He's a kid that could have a big spring. We will be anxious to see how he and his recruitment develop over the coming months.

Brad Mayes, 3-star, Berkley Prep, 2015
Mayes is as solid as they come in this state. He doesn't possess elite size or a bazooka arm but he's smart, poised and an accurate passer.
