Virginia Tech quarterback commit Quincy Patterson is participating in the Elite 11 event for the top high school quarterbacks in the country this weekend. The event, held for the top 25 quarterback prospects in the country, is a showcase for not only committed prospects, but uncommitted ones, too.
Patterson, the 6’3”, 236-pound signal caller from Chicago, pledged to the Hokies back in February.
Former Hokie, Tyrod Taylor, who competed in the event back in 2006 and had some words of encouragement for this year’s class.
The Elite 11 event is the premier showcase for high school quarterbacks and the top performers will earn an invite to Nike’s The Opening.
You can follow the event live on SB Nation, or follow it on Twitter. Luke Stampini, of 247Sports, is at the event giving his analysis on all of the prospects. According to Stampini, Ohio State commit Emory Jones was the top performer on Day 1 of the event.
The young quarterbacks will receive coaching from former Super Bowl winner Trent Dilfer and another former NFL passer—Jordan Palmer—Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer’s younger brother.
Best of luck to Quincy and all of the young passers at this weekend’s Elite 11 event. We’ll be following the event and keep you updated on Patterson’s progress.
