Three Michigan QB's make Elite 11
Montana made it also. No ND or OSU prospects.
Gardner, Bolden, and Boisture make Elite 11
Three Michigan QB's make Elite 11
3 Michigan QBs. That's impressive. Quick question, is this a try-out for the actual Elite 11 or is it the real deal?
this is the final group, which will compete at the Elite 11 camp.
Nice, and what's the deal with Boisture? Is HE the real deal? I almost never hear anything about him and then when there is a new set of rankings out he has consistently been mentioned at the top.
what to think. He ended his recruitment early by committing to BC, so not much was said. Here is a clip of his HS action last season.
I was a little surprised watching the video clip. I expected to see a stationary cannon. While not a dual threat QB by any measure, he has decent mobility for a big kid. His arm strength, however, was less than I expected. He made a lot of throws, but didn't have the zip of some big time QB recruits. Overall, he does look like a good prospect.
Mobility? I don't know about that. Dude looked Navarre-slow to me.
I know you cant take everything from a 10 minute youtube clip but why is it that he rarely stays in the pocket? He always seems to roll out, especially to the right. Is it that his o-line sucked that bad or is that just how they do it?
Either way he looks solid but I'm convinced that DG is the best QB in the state of Michigan.
You could tell that a lot of those plays were designed rollouts. But you could also tell that his offensive line sucked (which is probably why his coach rolled him out so much).
Boisture's tape looks similar to Threet's high school tape.
Threet was a four star recruit and was only rated two spots lower than the one and only Greg Paulus
Please reference last year
He can play. To me, DG and Boisture are the top two QB in the state and then there's Bolden who is a notch below them IMO. Seen all three of them play, DG has the biggest upside, Boisture is the best pure passer and Bolden didn't impress me much. I think that Bolden is a camp/workout warrior because apparently he looks good in shorts rather than in pads.
The more I read these things, the more I feel like being anything but something of a beat writer in this day of 24/7 updates is almost impossible. I can't tell you how often I read something that we knew to be true about 6 months ago that has subsequently changed, such as Gardner's extreme rawness. My understanding is that of late he's been developing very nicely.
Your link doesn't work.
for posting it.
Is the QB tOSU picked up supposed to be a sleeper recruit or was he the best available since Montana went to Wash?
I believe he missed most (all?) of last year with an injury, so there wasn't much film on him.
He's going to have a pretty nice ranking when they get updated.
DG must have really fixed up his throwing or the Elite 11 guys must have been extremely enamored with his athleticism to select him. IIRC from previous years, they have gone with the more polished passers as opposed to some dual threat guys which has irked more than a few fan bases.
Good to see 3 Michigan QB's in there. When does the Elite 11 take place? Lately all we have been hearing about is DG's athleticism, I would like to here some reports strictly on his quarterbacking skills.
Congrats to all the Michigan QBs. I am really surprised Conner Wood didn't make it really surprised.
My best friend is a coach at Lakeville (black Team in the highlight film), who Goodrich destorys every single season. He said Boisture has the best arm he has ever seen. He said one big flaw the kid has right now is he can shot put the ball out of his hand instead of following through on his release. Also he said they rolled him out a little more then you would expect and that he was more effecive in the pocket.
As far as this season goes I would expect for him to really up his game at Saline. Goodrich has alway been a team that leans heavy on the running game but were trying to adapt to his style and had mixed results because of the system. One problem to remember is that Goodrich doesn't play many A or B schools. Hovering around 800 kids most teams they play are schools of four or five hundred kids...His time at Saline should shine some light on how he does against better talnet.
I hate to say it but he seems like a good fit for MSU's system.
