The Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Series presented by adidas attracted the nation’s most talented and accomplished prospects. Here are the 10 best performances from quarterbacks from all 10 regional camps.
Recruiting wrap: Florida, Alabama and several others have offered the 2020 phenom.
Performance: Bailey outpaced three five-star quarterbacks at the Atlanta stop of the camp series to earn MVP honors. On a windy, rainy day in Atlanta, he rose above the competition, showing excellent accuracy and a very strong arm.
Recruiting wrap: Lawrence is committed to Clemson.
Performance: It’s not often the nation’s No. 1 prospect is surpassed at an event, and in Atlanta he just narrowly missed out on MVP honors. Lawrence was near perfect despite tough conditions for quarterbacks and showed his trademark arm strength and accuracy.
Recruiting wrap: Fields is committed to Penn State.
Performance: Fields battled through an ankle injury to participate in the Charlotte stop of the series, and while he was visibly limping at times, it didn’t impact his ability to throw the ball. He was consistently effective and has shown continued improvement over the past 12 months.
Recruiting wrap: Rogers is down to LSU, TCU and North Carolina, with a decision expected this week.
Performance: Rogers took home quarterback MVP honors and earned an invitation to the Five-Star Challenge at the New Orleans stop of the tour. He was praised at that event by quarterback guru Steve Clarkson, who compared him to former first round draft pick E.J. Manuel.
Recruiting wrap: Leary is committed to N.C. State.
Performance: Leary turned heads at the New Jersey stop of the tour, winning MVP honors. Leary was praised for his arm strength and touch, and his showing was praised by other prospects at the event as well.
Recruiting Wrap: Mathis is committed to Iowa State.
Performance: Mathis came out of nowhere to win MVP honors at the Columbus stop of the series, flashing an impressive arm and also showing impressive athleticism during agility drills. After locking up quarterback MVP honors, Mathis took reps at wide receiver, where he was also very impressive.
Recruiting wrap: Young has early offers from Nebraska, TCU, Louisville and several others.
Performance: In a deep group of quarterbacks at the Rivals 3-Stripe Camp Los Angeles event, Young’s consistent performance earned him MVP honors. He was a favorite of the event’s top wide receivers, who consistently requested him to throw in one-on-ones.
Recruiting wrap: Shough has offers from Michigan, Missouri, South Carolina and several others.
Performance: Shough’s stock has been on the rise during the spring, and he showed why at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles. He narrowly missed MVP honors and was praised for his size, athleticism and arm strength by the event’s coaches.
Recruiting wrap: Penix is committed to Tennessee.
Performance: It was a good day for quarterbacks at the Orlando stop of the series, but Penix earned MVP honors after a very impressive performance. He was praised for putting velocity on the ball and doing a nice job of leading his receivers into open space.
Recruiting wrap: Gatewood is committed to Auburn.
Performance: Gatewood was part of a deep quarterback group at the Orlando stop and was praised at the event for his continued improvement as a passer. One of the youngest prospects ever to be invited to the Five-Star Challenge in 2015, Gatewood will return to the event this year after earning another invitation.
