ESPN 150: Georgia's Brice Ramsey and Other Risers in Elite 11 QB Rankings
Georgia commit Brice Ramsey, South Florida commit Asiantii Woulard and Zach Greenlee all dazzled at the 2012 Elite 11 Finals.
The Elite 11 competition featured 25 of the best high school quarterbacks in the country, including USC commit Max Brown, Penn State commit Christian Hackenberg and Michigan commit Shane Morris. However, none of those quarterbacks stole the show.
Instead, it was Woulard that walked away from the event as the MVP. ESPN's Trent Dilfer served as a head coach for the event, and he was "blown away" by Woulard, who was one of the last quarterbacks to be invited, according to ESPN.
"I never thought that he could do what he did," Dilfer said
Well, neither did anybody else. It's safe to say Woulard, who was rated as a 3-star quarterback by Rivals and 4-star by 247 Sports, won't be flying under the radar anymore. Following his MVP performance, Woulard broke the ESPN 150 rankings.
Woulard is now listed as the No. 146 best recruit in the country, and judging by Dilfer's reaction to the dual threat quarterback, South Florida is truly inheriting what's been a hidden gem. But Woulard's not the only quarterback to raise his stock.
Georgia's great quarterback pipeline from Matthew Stafford to Aaron Murray should extend to another talented quarterback in Ramsey. Ramsey is listed as a 4-star athlete by Rivals, ESPN and 247 Sports, and after watching his highlight videos, it's not shocking to hear he impressed ESPN's Tom Luginbill.
Because Ramsey displayed great accuracy, solid reads and a solid delivery at the Elite 11, he broke the Top 100 in ESPN rankings and is now listed at No. 93.
If Ramsey can continue to develop into a great pocket passer, he has a chance to be as good as both Stafford and Murray, and considering what both quarterbacks have been able to accomplish, that's saying an awful lot.
And lastly, another riser to impress at the Elite 11 was none other than Zach Greenlee.
Greenlee, like Woulard, took many by surprise and he continues to make noise this summer. Greenlee shocked many by winning the Las Vegas regional MVP, and at the Elite 11, he proved that he can hang with the best quarterbacks in the nation. Greenlee, who's rated as a 3-star quarterback by Rivals and 4-star by ESPN, did just that.
Greenlee not only looked the part physically with his strong arm, but his tenacity and blue-collar work ethic caught Dilfer's eye. In the video embedded below, Dilfer told Greenlee, "After six regionals, you might be the fiercest competitor I've seen yet."
His performance bumped him up to No. 120 in the ESPN 150 rankings, and as he continues to exceed expectations, expect his offers to grow. Right now, Greenlee's biggest offer is from Fresno State.
If Greenlee can continue to improve, sooner or later word will get around about him. And at this point, it's not a stretch to think this guy could start at a major university and become a primetime quarterback.
