No player improved more from day one to day five at the recent EA SPORTS Elite 11 quarterback camp than Oakland (Calif.) McClymond's Kyle Reed. Here's our post-camp evaluation of the talented signal caller.
Reed stepped up his game big time this week and showed incredible promise for the future. Reed has only played quarterback for two years so you would expect he would be a little raw and not as mature in some aspects of the game as the other quarterbacks. That didn’t appear to be the case by the third workout however as Reed made huge strides and improved more over the week than any other signal caller.
Physically, Reed is a special talent. He can throw the 18 yard out with just a flick of his wrist and he’s so athletic that he often times looks like a basketball player in the pocket because of how smooth and effortless he does things. One of the most gratifying parts of the camp every year is seeing a player grow leaps and bounds from the first day he arrived and that’s what happened with Reed. On the field, he applied all the great teaching he received in the classroom and having the opportunity to play for a quarterback coach like Jeff Tedford at Cal should only enhance that.
On the final day of the camp, our six college counselors voted Reed the most improved player at the camp and also said he had the best release. We would add best feet as well but you can't win them all.
