August 20, 2004EA SPORTS is proud to present the EA SPORTS Elite 11 Quarterback Top 100, a list of the nation's top 100 quarterbacks after camp and film evaluation. The list is a comprehensive and constantly changing list from the producers of the NIKE Camps and EA SPORTS Elite 11 QB Workouts.
Also coming in the fall is the EA SPORTS Elite 11 Quarterback Tracker, which will follow the senior seasons of the 12 EA SPORTS Elite 11 quarterbacks game-by-game.
All told, when totaling both the NIKE Camps and EA SPORTS Elite 11 Regional Workouts, over 1,000 quarterbacks have been evaluated in person this year, not to mention many more on tape.
Four quarterbacks inside the EA SPORTS Elite 11 Top 100 made their college commitments in the past week and a half, led by Oceanside (Calif.) standout Derek Shaw, who chose the Miami Hurricanes over 30 other scholarship offers.
Shaw, a 6-3, 205 pounder who threw for 2,200 yards and 23 TDs as a junior, will hope to repeat the success of past Hurricanes quarterbacks that played their high school football in California, including Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torreta and more recently Ken Dorsey.
The commitment to Miami came a few days after Shaw took an unofficial visit to Miami. The 'Canes had offered a week earlier and while Shaw also had offers from schools like Nebraska, LSU, Florida, UCLA, Texas Tech and others, the lure of playing for national championships was too much for Shaw to pass up.
Two other California signal callers committed to leave the Golden State this past week as Los Alamitos' Jimmy Barnes chose the Alabama Crimson Tide and Granite Bay's Patrick Devenny committed to Colorado.
Barnes, a 6-5, 225 pounder, threw for 2,236 yards with 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions as a junior, leading Los Al to an 11-2 record. Devenny, a 6-3, 210 pounder, hit 58 percent of his passes for 1,607 yards with 20 touchdowns and just six interceptions as a junior.
In Illinois, Springfield Sacred Heart-Griffin quarterback Eric Peterman decided to pass on offers from Wisconsin, Air Force and Indiana and stay instate, committing to Northwestern. The 6-1, 200 pounder is a versatile run/pass threat with his 4.6 speed, as he threw for 1,525 yards and 22 touchdowns while rushing for 1,710 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior.
Here's a look at the EA SPORTS Elite 11 Quarterback Top 100, which lists the nation's top 100 quarterbacks after tape and in-person evaluation. This list is subject to change and will be updated throughout the fall.
