Southlake (Texas) Carroll quarterback Greg McElroy didn't start last season as many people already know, but he is still a serious candidate to be named to the EA Sports Elite 11 squad and he showed his skill against around 60 of the nation's top quarterbacks on Saturday in Las Vegas.
"It was fun to get out here and compete against the best in the nation," McElroy, who is 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds and ranked as the No. 77 player in Texas by Rivals.com, said. "I think things like this really help my confidence out. It shows me and it shows others that I can do it at a high level against the best players in the nation."
McElroy has scholarship offers from Kansas, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Texas Tech, UNLV, UTEP and several others. He has spent some time on college campuses this summer. He's currently at Stanford and he's also been to Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, SMU, Texas, Tennessee and Alabama.

"I've learned a lot at each camp," McElroy said. "They're great opportunities for me to go out there and show what I have, but also learn more and more from the college coaches. It really helps me get ready for the season."
McElroy said he's likely going to wait until after his senior season to make a decision for a few reasons.
"Probably the biggest reason I'm waiting is that I've been told by two schools that they're going to offer me later on, and I'd kind of like to see if that is going to happen," McElroy said.
"I'd rather not say what two teams they are. I'm really excited about all of the teams that have offered me at this point, and I'm very serious about them, but I owe it to myself to wait for the right situation."
