Monday should be a welcome show for college football fans across the country – the competition is back.
The Elite 11, arguably the most prestigious national quarterback competition for high school talent, returns with its 2020 event Monday through Wednesday afternoon in Nashville, Tennessee. Some of America’s top passers-by are expected to travel and compete for the coveted MVP Elite 11 crown.
While this list seems to change considering everyone will be on the same playing field competing under the same conditions, the SI All-American college prospect classification of expected attendees at the front of the event is as follows.
one) Caleb Williams – Washington (DC) Gonzaga College HS
Physically gifted athlete with dynamic arm talent and running ability. Established to commit between Maryland, LSU and Oklahoma on July 4.
two) Brock Vandagriff – Bogart (Georgia) Prince Avenue Christian
High floor pin with great mechanics, as well as athletics in a large frame. Committed to Georgia.
3) JJ McCarthy – Bradenton Academy (Florida) IMG
A balanced and consistent pin showing the potential of the big arm at all three levels. Committed to Michigan.
4) Tyler Buchner – La Jolla (California) Helix
Ultra-productive pin and runner with dynamic characteristics. Committed to Notre Dame.
5) Drake Maye – Charlotte (NC) Myers Park
Great physical prospect with great arm and more athletics. Committed to North Carolina.
6) Kyle McCord – Philadelphia (Pa.) St. Joseph’s Prep
Mature pin with high arch ball and soft release point. Committed to the state of Ohio.
7) Miller Moss – Santa Ana (California) Mater Dei
Sharp leader who can work efficiently and precisely on all three levels. Committed to the USC.
8) Dematrius Davis – North Coast of Houston (Texas)

Stable pocket pin with wheels to threaten the defense with your legs, too. Committed to Tennessee.

eleven) Christian Veilleux – Potomac (Md.) The Bullis School
Easy launch with polishing in vertical play and good fundamental athletics. Committed to Penn State.
12) Luke Altmyer – Starkville (miss)
Productive ball dealer who took a big step forward as a junior. Committed to the state of Florida.
13) Ty Thompson – Gilbert (Ariz.) Mesquite
A bit rough mechanically, but all about its tools and intangibles. Double threatens with a large arm and a long frame that will continue to fill. Committed to Oregon.
14) Carlos del rio – Loganville (Ga.) Grayson
One of the most dispersed quarterbacks in the group who can make impressive off-platform pitches look easy. Committed to Florida.
fifteen. Maddox Kopp – Houston (Texas) St. Thomas
It was only recently that he started taking soccer seriously after playing AAU basketball from fourth grade. Strong arm and impressive anticipation considering that information. Great frame that has room to complete. Uncommitted.
sixteen. Grayson James – Plano (Texas) John Paul II
He helped make his show a contender for the state championship. Frame ready to play with experience in various passing schemes and solidity in the arm. Uncommitted.
17) Behren Morton – Eastland (Texas)
The ideal quarterback with active feet extension system for deployments and pocket navigation. The ball slips out of your hand. Speed could improve. Committed to Texas Tech.
18) Kyron Drones – Pearland (Texas) Shadow Creek
He plays with great strength in the deep arm and evades pressure well, but look for more in the game underneath and better anticipation. Committed to Baylor.
19) Tyler Macon – East St. Louis (Ill.)
Robust and small game player, but it certainly promises to be a passer. It delivers hits on narrow windows and is accurate outside the numbers. Committed to Missouri.
twenty) Jay Allen – Fort Pierce (Florida) John Carroll
The Florida baseball team that throws a solid deep ball and is athletic, but will need to clean up its pitching mechanics to emerge as a quarterback at the next level.
