Future Is Bright For Stone

Woodberry Forest (VA) quarterback Lindell Stone was quite impressive throwing the football at last week's Elite-11 in Columbus. Only a 2017 prospect, Stone has three seasons of high school football remaining.

Last week's Elite-11 Quarterback Competition was yet another opportunity to see the development of Woodberry Forest (VA) quarterback Lindell Stone, and he certainly impressed.

Stone, 6-foot-2, 195-pounds, hit the recruiting radar last summer before throwing a pass as a freshman in high school, earning an offer from UCLA.

After seeing Stone a week ago, it's apparent he's putting in the time and his improvement was noticeable.

"My freshman year was good and I started two games," Stone stated. "I completed over 70% of my passes, with over 500 passing yards. My first start was great and we beat the number-one team in Virginia."

"I was able to fit in well with our system, and be a quiet leader on our team," he added. "I need to become more athletic and I'm working on that. I want to become fluid with my throwing motion."

With three seasons of high school football remaining, Stone is going to be a top recruit. He has summer camp visits planned.

"I'm going to Stanford and Notre Dame for camps, and the Elite-11 will prepare me for that," he explained. "I thought I did really well at Elite-11, and this was fun competing with the best quarterbacks."

"This camp helped me a lot, especially from Trent Dilfer," Stone said. "There's so much to learn about perseverance and not quitting, and I think so much of Coach Dilfer because he's been through it."
