Washington, D.C., Elite 11 Preview

Some of the top quarterbacks in the region will compete at the Washington Redskins' practice facility Friday for the right to be named one of the Elite 11 signal callers in the country. Here is a preview of some of the competitors.

Four-star uncommitted quarterback Brandon Wimbush of Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep leads the contingent of quarterbacks into Friday's Elite 11 competition at the Washington Redskins' practice complex.

Wimbush, who is 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, has Penn State, Ohio State, Miami and Virginia Tech high on his list, and hopes to make a decision prior to the summer.

There will also be a number of the region's best 2016 quarterback prospects, including Newtown (Pa.) Council Rock North's Brandon McIlwain, who holds double digits offers, including Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Miami, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, UCLA and Virginia.

The 2015s

There are a number of intriguing quarterbacks in the class ready to compete beyond Wimbush, including four-star Kai Locksley of Baltimore Gilman School. Locksley recently named a Top 10 of Auburn, Miami, Ohio State, Texas, Oregon, Florida State, Ole Miss, Maryland, Baylor and Virginia Tech.

Another target to watch is Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga's Nick Johns. He is being recruited hard by Virginia and Maryland, and both made him a priority in the class.

Montclair (N.J.) High's Elijah Robinson is slated to attend, and he holds a handful of offers, including ones from Rutgers, Nebraska and Virginia, but schools are also looking at him as a defensive back.

A few other quarterebacks looking to make a name for themselves are Wallington (N.J.) High's Ryan Adzima, Waldorf (Md.) North Point's Brandon Battle, Skillman (N.J.) Montgomery's Chris Chugunov, Bellmore (N.Y.) Mepham's Tyler Davis, Cheshire (Conn.) Academy's Patrick Kehoe and Arlington (Va.) Wakefield's Riley Wilson and Leesburg (Va.) Loudoun Country's Takwan Crews-Taylor.

The Underclassmen

There is a lot of strength in the 2016 class in the field, and it goes beyond McIlwain.

Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic's Jarrett Guarantano, who was strong at the event last season, holds offers from Clemson, Rutgers, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina and Nebraska.

Also, Potomac (Md.) The Bullis School's Dwayne Haskins has offers from SMU, Arizona State, Utah and Nebraska.

Four-star Avery McCall of Dillon (S.C.) High has a big arm to go with his athleticism. He holds offers from Clemson, LSU, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Also, Ashburn (Va.) Stone Bridge's Joe Thompson will be in attendance.

In the 2017 class, Gilman quarterback Kasim Hill is slated to compete.

Also, class of 2018 quarterback Tyler DeSue of Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes will be in attendance. He already holds a Virginia offer.
