According to Tyler James, the Notre Dame recruiting writer for the South Bend Tribune, the finalists have been named for the 2013 Elite 11 Finals. Scheduled to take place towards the end of this month, the Elite 11 camp is the most prestigious off-season event for high school quarterbacks.
More than 700 high school signal-callers competed at various locations across the country to earn a "golden ticket" invite to the finals at Nike headquarters. In recent years, 24 have been invited back, but only 18 made the cut this year.
While there were several notable snubs left off the final list, the 2013 line up features the best of the best in the country. A big strong-armed quarterback from Oklahoma, an athletic passer from Georgia and perhaps even Johnny Manziel's future replacement all will be competing at the Elite 11 Finals.
