high school football quarterbacks

By the end of this weekend, we’ll know the twelve finalists that will head to Nike World Headquarters in Oregon next month to compete for the title of Elite 11 MVP at the nation’s premiere quarterback competition that is run in conjunction with The Opening.  24 of the nation’s top quarterbacks will descend on Redondo Union High School in Southern California to compete in the Elite 11 finals that will be conducted over a three-day period starting on Friday.

Texas leads all states with five finalists, followed by California, Florida and Georgia having three quarterbacks each.  New Jersey has two quarterbacks competing.

All eyes will be on Bishop Gorman‘s (Nevada) Tate Martell, who earlier this week announced his final seven college choices after de-committing from Texas A&M.

19 of the 24 combatants have given their verbals coming into the event.  Earlier this week, IMG Academy’s (Florida) Kellen Mond announced his de-commitment from Baylor after Art Briles was fired.
