Andrew Elffers had a strong performance at the New Level Athletics Elite 7on7 in Las Vegas with the Frat Boyz team and he hopes that kind of publicity can help with his recruitment.
The Pasadena (Calif.) Maranatha pro-style quarterback is hearing from many teams but he hasn't landed any offers yet. Elffers is encouraged by the attention he's receiving though and is confident some programs could offer leading up to his senior season.
"I feel pretty good," Elffers said. "It's cool getting this team together and right away we have some chemistry and we're getting some rhythm. We're working down the field really well so I'm feeling good.

"I'm hearing from a bunch of coaches right now. It takes longer because I'm a quarterback and we're such a big part of the program when they offer you."
Elffers, who threw for 3,328 yards and 37 touchdowns in his sophomore season but slipped a little in his junior year, said USC, UCLA, Oregon State, Vanderbilt, Boise State, San Diego State and San Jose State are all showing interest.
"I'm talking to a lot of coaches and a lot of them are showing good interest so when it comes to the spring I'll really see what's going to happen," Elffers said.
"A lot of schools have wanted me to come up. I know BYU for sure wants me to come up and so does San Diego State and USC. I'm going to see. A lot of schools want me to visit but I'll see and chop them down."
Elffers said he definitely plans to visit USC, Cal and Oregon State and then he'll figure out what else is feasible. The Maranatha prospect proved last weekend in Las Vegas he can definitely play Division I football and could see his recruitment take off soon.
He's just waiting for that first offer.
"It's really exciting," Elffers said. "Not a lot of high school players get to experience this and I'm just enjoying it right now."
