When you're the most in-demand independent quarterback instructor going, it makes for a busy summer. The offseason is your season. But George Whitfield isn't complaining, even on the heels of a two-week trek that took the Californian to Georgia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame -- and I might have accidentally omitted one or two stops.

Whitfield has most recently been in Oregon working with the Elite 11 camp, where some of his college pupils are counselors for the next crop of, as he calls them, "dragon slayers" or "surgeons."

I caught up with Whitfield to discuss three of the quarterbacks he's spent time with this offseason -- Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, Clemson's Tajh Boyd and Michigan's Devin Gardner -- and got his take on each player's development and what he's expecting to see out of them this season.
