Elite 11 Finals: Day Three Notebook

Scout states their top twelve quarterbacks from throughout the weekend at the Elite 11 Finals in Southern California...

While 24 quarterbacks converged upon Southern California for the weekend for the Elite 11 Finals, only 12 will get the final call to go to Beaverton later this summer for The Opening Finals.

Those 12 will be announced on Monday morning but Scout names their 12 picks for who should punch their golden ticket based on their body of work at Redondo Union.


Trevor Lawrence (Committed to Clemson)

Lawrence is a generational quarterback, who earned rave reviews from the Elite 11 coaches for his leadership and his knowledge of the position all weekend.  The No. 1 prospect in the country in 2018 continues to strengthen that argument.


Tanner McKee (Considering BYU, Texas, Washington, Alabama, Georgia and UCLA)

While he didn't work out on Sunday, he was excellent on Friday and Saturday and made a big case on those two days to earn a spot in The Opening Finals


Justin Fields (Committed to Penn State)

Fields makes all the throws, has a big arm and also showed great leadership skills and willingness to take to coaching from the Elite 11 staff. 


Dorian Thompson-Robinson (Committed to UCLA)

Thompson-Robinson made a case to be the MVP of the weekend and was the most consistent quarterback throughout the weekend, finishing in the top 2-3 every day.


Matt Corral (Committed to USC)

Corral has a 'bionic elbow'; few can gun it in there in this class like him. He's a high upside guy with a great future. 


Emory Jones (Committed to Ohio State)

Jones showed his big arm all weekend long, despite looking a little worn out by Sunday, but made a compelling case for a spot in Beaverton.


Devin Leary (Committed to NC State)

Leary was in the discussion with Lawrence and Corral for strongest arm in the event.  A big revelation from the weekend, Leary has some special qualities to him.


Tyler Shough (Considering Michigan, South Carolina, North CarolinaIndiana and California)

All but wrapped up his fourth star and a spot in the Scout 300, Shough was the biggest surprise from the quarterbacks from the West in the Finals.


Jack Tuttle (Committed to Utah)

The Elite 11 coaches said that Tuttle was among the best in the chalk talks throughout the weekend and it carried over onto the field, being one of the most consistent passers each day.


Jarren Williams (Committed to Kentucky)

Had a great Sunday and catapulted into our top twelve with how he closed the weekend out.  His final session was a loud statement to make it to The Opening Finals.


Carter Bradley (Considering Wisconsin, Rutgers, Temple, Florida, Georgia and Toledo)

Was one of the top five on Saturday night in the pro day workout and had another good day on Sunday in the 7v7.


Quincy Patterson (Committed to Virginia Tech)

Like Bradley, he closed the weekend well with a good pro day workout on Saturday night and finished it off well in the 7v7 on the final day.

National recruiting analyst Greg Biggins and Mountain/Island region analyst Blair Angulo compiled the top twelve
