LOS ANGELES — The Elite 11 Finals wrapped up on Sunday afternoon, with some of the nation’s best signal callers on hand. Twenty-four of the nation’s best quarterback recruits participated in a variety of on-field drills, including a pro-day style workout and 7-on-7 drills.

On Monday morning, the final Elite 11 prospects were announced, and the group will go on to compete in the 7-on-7 tournament at The Opening Finals.

The full list is below, including some notes on how each prospect did over the last three days.

Trevor Lawrence: The Clemson commit and nation’s No. 1 overall recruit for 2018 showed why he’s rated that high over the weekend. He had strong passes all weekend, and got some praise from coach Trent Dilfer. His stock is just as high as it was before the finals began.

Justin Fields: The Penn State commit that also plays baseball had a solid weekend overall. His best performance came on Saturday night, as he had some of the strongest throws of the group. He showed off a strong arm on Sunday, too.

Matthew Corral: The USC commit showed off a big arm over the weekend. He had a very good showing on Saturday night, and it’s clear why the Trojans want him for their pro-style scheme.

Dorian Thompson-Robinson: The UCLA commit easily had his best showing on Sunday. He had eight touchdowns, and was impressively accurate with the ball. He definitely was one of the more impressive guys that left a lasting impression.

Tanner McKee: He’s a big kid, standing at 6’6. He had some of the best throws on Saturday night, demonstrating a nice touch on the ball.

Devin Leary: The NC State commit showed off a strong arm over the weekend. One of his high notes during the event was on Saturday with his pro day workout, which was the top score according to the Elite 11 staff.

Jack Tuttle: The Utah commit had a strong first couple of days, but it was surprising that he struggled a bit on Sunday. Still, his performance overall was good enough for an Opening invite, and it is well-deserved.

Tyler Shough: The quarterback out of Arizona is the real deal. He can add weight to his 6’5 frame once he gets to college. He showed an easy velocity and a clean stroke. Some of his top offers include Michigan and North Carolina.

Jarren Williams: The Kentucky commit left a lasting impression on Sunday afternoon. He had one of his strongest days, while showing command and quick decision-making.

Justin Rogers: The TCU commit had a strong weekend, showing off an improved deep ball, and deft touch in the red zone.

Quincy Patterson II: Virginia Tech’s commit was definitely one of the more impressive guys of the weekend. The Chicago QB showed a strong arm and a smooth release.

Cammon Cooper: The Washington State commit showed he’ll fit perfectly in Mike Leach’s scheme. He may not have the strongest arm, but he makes up for it with a quick and compact delivery.
