After several days of competition in Oregon, Stratford’s Jacob Park and Clemson commitment Deshaun Watson of Gainesville, GA were chosen as part of the Elite 11 quarterback class for 2013.
Park, who is committed to Georgia, was ranked 5th among the quarterbacks and Watson was ranked 10th in the final rankings released late Wednesday night.
Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer and his staff selected the 11 quarterbacks from a group of 18 that competed.
Here’s their analysis of Park:
Park made a strong case for himself throughout the week and even had a good day on Tuesday, when most of the other quarterbacks didn’t. The Georgia commit had good presence in 7-on-7 play and made some outstanding throws in the Elite 11 drills.
And here’s their analysis of Watson:
A lot of eyes were on Watson coming into the event. With rumors swirling about his recruitment and the fact he’s the No. 1 ranked dual-threat quarterback, he had a lot of pressure on him. His performance didn’t show any signs of nerves and he proved he belongs near the top of the rankings.
Sean White of Fort Lauderdale, who is uncommitted, was named the Elite 11 MVP.
