Student Sports

Check the comment section for updates beginning around 4 EST.

The Elite 11 quarterback competition tour hits Florida at 4 p.m. Friday, as top quarterbacks from Florida and across the Southeast will try to win an invite to the Elite 11 Finals. The event will be held at Austin Tindall Park. Florida is not known for producing quarterbacks, but that won't deter the athletes. The biggest names:

  • Deondre Francois, of Orlando (Fla.) Olympia, holds offers from Florida, Florida State and Miami, as well as Ohio State.
  • Torrance Gibson, of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) American Heritage will be looking to prove he is a quarterback and not a receiver with some precision passing. Gibson is being pursued by many major schools, including Ohio State, Florida and Miami.
  • Tucker Israel, of Orlando (Fla.) Lake Nona, is committed to Clemson.
  • Lamar Jackson, of Boynton Beach (Fla.) has numerous top offers like Florida State, Clemson, Oregon and West Virginia, and will be looking to show he can throw as well as he can run.
  • And Florida State commitment De'Andre Johnson, of Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast, will be looking to show why the National Champions accepted such an early commitment from him.
  • Christian Alexander, of Lakeland Christian, claims an offer from Miami and will be looking to impress.
  • Matt Dame, of West Palm Beach (Fla.) Suncoast, holds an offer from Akron.

Several underclassmen will also be present. Feleipe Franks, of Wakulla (Fla.), may be the best at the event regardless of class. He'll be a national recruit fairly soon. Rex Culpepper, of Tampa (Fla.) Plant is a promising member of the class of 2016 from a great program.

Those are just a few of the known names. Below is the complete list of expected prospects expected to attend, provided by the Elite 11 staff, from which other stars will surely emerge.
