COLUMBUS, Ohio – With only six spots remaining for July’s Elite 11 finals, Monday was the final opportunity at an Elite 11 regional for quarterbacks to earn one of those precious few spots. Monday’s event was held in the shadows of Buckeye Stadium and it featured a roster that performed at a high level all evening long.
Michigan commit Alex Malzone looked very comfortable in the shadows of The Horseshoe.
After a long evening of work, the Elite 11 staff picked the top seven passers to enter what they call The Pressure Chamber (the Elite 11 version of a two-minute drill) to put the finishing touches on the night.
Alex Malzone – Malzone, the Michigan commit, had a very solid evening and had one of the better arms at the event. He also has good active feet in and outside the pocket. He could blend in at times but he definitely rose to the occasion during his pressure chamber showing. Of his five throws, four of them were dimes that he threw with a lot of command. He missed on a dig route but all in all, he had a strong output on his rival’s field. Later Monday night Malzone earned an invitation to the Elite 11 finals, securing one of the final 18 spots.
