Elite 11 pulls into New Orleans


by Jeff Fisher

The next stop on the Elite 11 quarterback competition is New Orleans this Saturday.

On Sunday, two more invites were handed at The Opening 2015 Atlanta regional qualifier.  Advancing to the July event at Nike World Headquarters in Oregon were Malik Henry of IMG Academy in Florida and Jawon Pass from Columbus Carver High School in Georgia.

Henry and Pass join two other qualifiers to this point – Dillon Sterling-Cole from Westfield HS in Texas and Feleipe Franks from Wakulla HS in Florida.

Franks and Henry are the only two of the four qualifiers that have given their verbal commitments. Franks, who is 247sports.com’s #1 dual threat QB, said yes to LSU last June. Henry, who is the #2 Pro-Style QB in 247sports.com’s composite rankings, is staying in the Sunshine State to play at Florida State.
