FORT WORTH, Texas - Trying to pick out the top quarterback at Friday's EA Sports Elite 11 quarterback camp wasn't easy. With several top in-state and out-of-state signal callers on hand, there was certainly plenty of competition.
Houston Stratford quarterback Andrew Luck was one quarterback that had quite the outing. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Luck showed off his strong arm and the ability to put the ball in spots for his receivers with ease. Despite one of the most consistent days of any of the quarterbacks, Luck, the constant worker, says he still is looking to improve.
"The camp really stressed fundamentals and getting your feet in the right place," Luck said. "That's something I need to work on and it really showed me some new drills that I can work on at home, with my coaches, and put me in a better position."
Luck said he was also impressed with other quarterbacks on hand like Tommy Dorman, Kelly Page, and Stephen Payne. All of the passers were definitely picking things up from one another.
"Our coaches at school say every time someone takes a rep, it should be a mental rep for you," Luck said. "That way, you can learn from their positive things and mistakes. That way you can emulate the good things they do and learn from the bad.
"It was great to be out here because there are some great quarterbacks. Everyone out here is a legit quarterback."
Recruiting hasn't been a problem for Luck either. His offer count just continues to rise with new ones in hand from LSU and Alabama. He says that he will narrow his list down to five schools within the next month.
From there, he'll visit those five schools for camps this summer.
"Commitment-wise, it doesn't matter when I do it," Luck said. "It could be before the season, after, but mainly, I'm going to want to focus on football as a senior. Then I'll thinking about recruiting if I haven't decided by then."
Luck has also seen coaches from Rice, LSU, Missouri, Kansas State, and Houston stop by the school since spring began. He says that he's still enjoying being recruited by so many schools.
"It's a great process," Luck said. "You don't want to put pressure on it and let things get to your head. But there are worse problems to have. It's really been good."
