Inside the Elite 11 QB camp 

July, 21, 2009

I'd heard a lot about how this year's quarterback class of 2010 is really shaky, but the first thing you notice about this year's crop of senior quarterbacks at the EA Sports Elite 11 QB camp is how big this group is. There are a lot of 6-foot-4, 6-5 kids, and some of them -- such as Michigan commit Devin Gardner -- are pretty sturdy-looking as well. Alabama commit Phillip Sims looks older than some of the college counselors.

In the first throwing session of the camp Monday night at Soka University in Orange County, Calif., a lot of nerves clearly were firing. One of the college quarterbacks remarked about just how nervous Barry Brunetti, a shorter quarterback from Memphis, looked as he began the passing drills. However, a few hours later when the entire group of campers, counselors and coaches reconvened after dinner for their introduction session, Brunetti seemed to be the most at ease and poised of any of the high schoolers.

To read the rest of Bruce's blog -- including notes on how Colt McCoy learned to be a quarterback, why it's a smart idea to diagram plays with pennies and dimes, C.J. Spiller's Heisman campaign and whether the Mountain West Conference is better than the Big East -- you must be an ESPN Insider. Insider
