Mercer Island High senior quarterback Jeff Lindquist, who has committed to sign with Washington and is pictured at right in a Mark Harrison photo, was named today to an Elite 11 quarterback out of the 24 that competed at the camp this week.
Here are details.
Fellow UW commit Cyler Miles of Denver was among the 24 who competed, but he was not named to the final group of 11.
The 6-3, 225-pound Lindquist committed to UW in late April and has been rated as among the top recruits in the state and among the best QBs in the nation. Lindquist and Miles are two of UW’s 16 commits for the Class of 2012.
In an Insider story earlier this week, Greg Biggins recapped the college choices of the Elite 11 QBs.
Three of the final 11 have committed to Pac-12 schools, the others being Shane Dillon (Colorado) and Zach Kline (Cal).
