When He Competed: 2007
Why He's Ranked Here
Andrew Luck is ranked here because he's the greatest Elite 11 alum of all time. It's that simple. From Houston, Luck was a 6'4", 215-pound passer who essentially had very little limitations as a high school quarterback. He was bright, saw the field well and had all of the physical tools needed to excel at the position.
The former 5-star recruit was truly the real deal back then, which warranted an invitation to compete at the Elite 11 in 2007.
Luck signed with Stanford in 2008, and redshirted in his first year. Then, he became a surefire NFL prospect. He finished with 9,430 yards and 82 touchdowns on The Farm, while rushing for another 957 yards and seven touchdowns.
Luck finished second in Heisman voting in both 2010 and 2011. The Indianapolis Colts made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Luck told the following to John Talman of Rivals.com (subscription required) after an Elite 11 workout in 2007:
"It was great to be out here because there are some great quarterbacks. Everyone out here is a legit quarterback."
