Dormady Shows Up At Elite 11

Quinten Dormady loves to compete. Now, would he have preferred to follow up his strong sophomore season at Boerne (Texas) High School in which he completed 228 of his 372 passes for 3,010 yards and 27 touchdowns with just 9 interceptions with a strong junior year that had him on track to be one of the elite quarterback prospects in Texas?

Sure, he would have, but Dormady missed his entire junior season after a torn labrum sliding back into a bag in baseball. With the injury completely healed he has been on a barnstorming tour that Sunday included the Elite 11 regional competition at AT&T Stadium.

"I love to compete," said Dormady. "This is the closest that it has ever been (for me) to a big-time environment and a big-time college football game and you have to make the throw or you're out. It is definitely good to be back doing this again."

The 6-4, 210-pound Dormady did not get the invite to the Elite 11 finals at The Opening in Oregon. He did not throw in the pressure cooker at the end of the competition on Sunday, but to observers he clearly threw the ball very well and was one of the better quarterbacks on display during the drills and throwing exercises.

Dormady throws with a classic delivery and he had a lot of velocity on the ball. His accuracy was good. There have been offers from Houston and Vanderbilt and interest from a number of schools including Oklahoma State.

OSU offensive coordinator/quarterback coach Mike Yurcich was in Boerne to watch Dormady throw in the offseason and spring drills last week.

"I think I performed pretty well for it being the first time in this kind of environment in a while," he added. "I really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. It puts this back in front of my mind. I thought the coaching was great. I learned a lot from Trent Dilfer and the staff out there."

Dormady plays his recruiting interests close to the vest. He also has interest from Texas and TCU.

"As far as attention there is not one school that I would pick out and there are a couple that have shown a lot of interest and I'm trying to keep in touch and build relationships with those guys," Dormady explained.

Oklahoma State is one of those. His summer plans include going to camps based on the spring and how that goes. He will also compete with his receivers and team in seven-on-seven. It would be safe to think he would end up at a camp at Texas, TCU, and in Stillwater.
