Elite 11 QB projections

Bold predictions for Nike's The Opening

RecruitingNation senior writer Jeremy Crabtree wrote 10 bold predictions for Nike's The Opening. He joins ESPN's Phil Murphy to discuss the most certain of those forecasts and the biggest reach.

The Elite 11 finals will feature 18 of the best 2016 quarterback prospects, 16 of which are already committed.

While this does not affect their overall ESPN 300 player ranking or evaluation, here's our projections of who will hit the college field the soonest.
