2003 EA SPORTS Elite 11 Quarterback Tracker

Rhett Bomar 6-3, 195
Grand Prairie (Texas)

2002:
This Student Sports Junior All-American completed 163 of 265 passes for 2,860 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also rushed for 717 yards and nine more scores and is regarded by most as the top overall recruit in Texas.
Camp Evaluation:
Showed off a strong arm and great feet. Looked as quick as any quarterback in the nation this year and got stronger as the week went along. He’s the kind of quarterback others will want to follow and he should have no problem getting the respect of his teammates in the huddle because of how hard he competes.
Favorite colleges: Committed to
OKLAHOMA
2003 (First game scheduled):
9/5 at Abilene Cooper
John David Booty 6-3, 195
Evangel Christian (Shreveport, La.)/USC Trojans
2002:
Passed for 3,956 yards and 37 TDs after piling up 4,330 yards and 50 TDs the season before. That turned out, in effect, to be his junior and senior stats as Booty made the decision last May to bypass his senior year of eligibility at Evangel to enroll at USC, the school that landed his commitment.
Camp Evaluation:
Reinforced the fact that he is an incredible talent who is equally gifted physically and cerebrally. Booty has the great arm, can make all the throws and knows how to buy time in the pocket while keeping his eyes looking downfield. He’s a very smart and mature player who should have an opportunity to compete for playing time this fall as a true freshman at USC.
2003 - Redshirting at USC
Alonzo "A.J." Bryant 6-1, 185
Peach County (Fort Valley, Ga.)

2002:
Stood out as a junior with 1,605 yards passing and 11 scores. He also made several big plays running the ball with his sub-4.4 speed. Earned his EA Sports Elite 11 Camp invite with strong outing at Las Vegas tryout.
Camp Evaluation: Continued to impress and showed why he’s a quarterback first and an athlete second. His strong arm, quick release and athleticism are well-known, but Bryant also plays with poise, has excellent natural instincts at the position, and is a leader both on and off the field.
Favorite colleges: Committed to
GEORGIA

2003 GAME-BY-GAME STATISTICS:
GAME ATT COMP YARDS TD INT RESULT OTHER
8/29 at Macon Co. 25 16 252 3 0 W, 41-16  
Kirby Freeman 6-2, 190
Brownwood (Texas)

2002: Threw for 1,315 yards and nine scores while rushing for 1,121 and 16 touchdowns, leading Brownwood deep into the State 3A Playoffs
Camp Evaluation: His arm strength is off the charts and what makes it even more impressive is that he does it with a quick release as well. He throws a nice, tight ball every time and was as accurate as any quarterback at the camp. What separates Freeman from many of the others, along with his huge arm and athleticism, is his outgoing personality. Other players can't help but like him and even though he likes to have a good time off the field, he knows how to focus in when it’s time to get to work.

Favorite colleges: Committed to
MIAMI
2003 GAME-BY-GAME STATISTICS:
GAME ATT COMP YARDS TD INT RESULT OTHER
8/30 vs. Ft. Worth Dunbar 17 12 199 1 0 W, 49-0 11-53, 2 TDs rush
Brian Hildebrand 6-2, 185
Corona (Calif.)

2002:
Threw for 1,913 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior to earn all-league honors for the second straight year. Earned his invite on the spring camp tour, as he was the top quarterback at both the Los Angeles and Stanford (Calif.) NIKE Camps and also out-threw everyone at the EA SPORTS Elite 11 Regional Workout at Stanford. No player has worked harder on his game in the last year.
Camp Evaluation: Above average arm strength with a quick release and underrated athleticism. Has all the intangibles you're looking for, including great leadership skills, a strong work ethic and is someone who wants the ball in his hands late in the game.

Favorite colleges: Colorado,
Arizona State, UCLA
2003 (First game scheduled):
Sept. 12 vs. Ayala
Cornelius Ingram 6-4, 195
Hawthorne (Fla.)

2002:
Threw for 1,424 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 500 yards and three more scores as a junior but should really explode as a senior. May also be a top 100 player in basketball and would like to double in that sport in college.
Camp Evaluation: Showed why he is exactly the type of quarterback the EA SPORTS Elite 11 was made for. He's still raw and developing in a lot of ways, but has tremendous upside and likely gained more from the five-day camp than any other signal caller in attendance. Has very good size, arm strength and athleticism and reminds us a bit of current Texas quarterback Vincent Young, who attended the Elite 11 Camp two years ago.

Favorite colleges:
Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, North Carolina
2003 (First game scheduled): Sept. 5 vs. Hilliard
Nate Longshore 6-4, 230
Canyon Country (Calif.)

2002:
Passed for 2,100 yards and 18 touchdowns while running for six more scores. Led team to 11-2 record. Won invite by displaying live arm and improved feet at Las Vegas tryout.
Camp Evaluation: Established himself as the top passing prospect in the Golden State. He has a strong arm and is very solid mechanically with a very quick release. He stands tall in the pocket and his ability to find his second and third receivers as well as his accuracy are his strengths.

Favorite colleges:
California, USC, UCLA
2003 (First game scheduled): Sept. 12 at Lancaster
Anthony Morelli 6-4, 210
Penn Hills (Pittsburgh, Pa.)

2002:
Earned All-League honors as a junior, completing 76 of 148 passes for 1,880 yards and 20 touchdowns with nine interceptions. First caught our eye at the NIKE Camp at Penn State two years ago and may have the strongest arm in the nation.
Camp Evaluation: This tough, competitive player wants to be the best and has a tireless work ethic and he showed that again. Morelli constantly threw high velocity spirals and was always among the high scorers in the target competitions.
Favorite colleges: Committed to
PITTSBURGH
2003 GAME-BY-GAME STATISTICS:
GAME ATT COMP YARDS TD INT RESULT OTHER
8/29 vs. Gateway 11 4 70 0 0 W, 32-26 OT 6-60 rush
Chase Patton 6-4, 205
Rock Bridge (Columbia, Mo.)

2002:
Lanky signal-caller from the Show Me State has emerged as a national recruit. He hit on 186 of 355 passes for 2,670 yards with 23 TDs and 9 picks as a junior, earning All-State honors.
Camp Evaluation: Struggled at times, throwing a different ball than he was accustomed to, but had a solid final few days and impressed with his knowledge in the classroom. He possesses all the physical tools to succeed in college.

Favorite colleges: Missouri,
Tennessee, UCLA
2003 (First game scheduled): Sept. 5 at Mexico
Bobby Reid 6-3, 220
North Shore (Houston, Texas)

2002:
Gained District MVP honors last fall, passing for 1,485 yards and 13 TDs while also rushing for 776 yards and 16 more scores. Will lead one of the top teams in the state in 2003.
Camp Evaluation: Displayed the talent that has colleges all over the country salivating over his future. Boasts a strong arm, great escape-ability and can really run. In addition, he showed good accuracy and really made strides in the classroom with his understanding of the passing game and reading defenses.
Favorite colleges: Committed to
OKLAHOMA STATE

2003 (First game scheduled): 9/5 at Alief Hastings
Matt Tuiasosopo 6-2, 205
Woodinville (Wash.)

2002:
The younger brother of former Washington and current Oakland Raider Marques Tuiasosopo and son of former NFL nose tackle Manu Tuiasosopo missed most of his junior season with a injury but had 16 touchdowns combined running and passing in just four games. Also an outstanding baseball prospect who participated in the prestigious Area Code Games for the second time this summer.
Camp Evaluation: Known more nationally as an athlete, Tui more than showed he is among the nation's elite at the quarterback position. He has plus arm strength, very good feet and the same toughness and natural leadership ability that made his older brother such a great college quarterback.

Favorite colleges:
UCLA, Washington, USC, Notre Dame, Stanford
2003 (First game scheduled):
Sept. 6 vs. Skyline (@ Seahawks Stadium in Seattle)
Drew Weatherford 6-2, 195
Land O'Lakes (Fla.)

2002: Played his entire season with a tear in his meniscus but still led his team to the state semifinals, completing 151 of 215 passes for 2,494 yards and 37 touchdowns with just two interceptions.
Camp Evaluation: Showed just how talented he is when healthy. He has plus arm strength, a quick release and can make all the throws. He's also a player that his teammates will follow into battle, a proven winner with great leadership skills, and a fiery competitive nature.

Favorite colleges: Committed to
FLORIDA STATE
2003 (First game scheduled): Sept. 5 at Zephyrhills
