Deacs Interested In Midwest QB

One of the most highly recruited quarterbacks in the midwest this upcoming fall figures to be Evansville's Joey Elliott. More than a dozen schools have already made plans to make a stop by Harrison High School during the May evaluation period.

"Wake Forest, Purdue, Michigan State, Lousiville, and Kentucky have already stopped by in the past week," said head coach Harvey Robbins. "I know the dates of when Wisconsin, Clemson, Indiana, and Washington State are stopping. Iowa was the first school to contact Joey so I know they'll be stopping by, and North Carolina State has shown as much interest as any other school."

Joey plans to camp at both Purdue and Michigan State this summer as well as visit five other schools during the month of June. Currently Washington State is Elliot's only offer, but that is soon to change.

"Schools are very cautious about offering from just watching film anymore. They all have told me they want to get him on campus to check him out in person, watch him throw, and most importantly watch him process information."

So what type of quarterback are we talking about in Elliott?

"From watching film, everyone first points out his accuracy. He is extremely accurate, and has good arm strength. He just reads coverages so well."

Robbins also indicated that currently Washington State, Indiana, Purdue, Iowa, Wake Forest, Michigan State, and North Carolina State were showing the most interest of all the schools on his list.
