QB Commit Brandon Wimbush Turning Heads at Elite 11

The Elite 11 quarterback competition is probably most familiar to Penn State fans because a certain signal caller had quite a showing in it two summers ago. We all know how that turned out, so Penn Staters will be happy to know that current quarterback commit Brandon Wimbush is making headlines in this summer’s iteration.

Wimbush, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound, four-star signal caller from New Jersey, committed to James Franklin in early May. He is one of the top 19 high school quarterbacks currently competing in the Oregon event, and several who watched today’s competition deemed Wimbush the best of the group.

Eleven Warriors says “there may not be a more complete quarterback in the country” and picked Wimbush to win the whole competition. Likewise, 247Sports lauded his strength, footwork, accuracy, and reads.

Wimbush chose Penn State amidst a plethora of options, from Ohio State to LSU. He’s the highest-ranked commit of Franklin’s 2015 class according to ESPN, where he’s No. 56 nationally. Christian Hackenberg isn’t eligible for the NFL Draft until after the 2015 season, which means Wimbush should have a few years to learn the new coaching staff’s system before playing, barring something unexpected.

It’s worth noting that Wimbush caused a bit of a stir after attending a Stanford camp following his Penn State commitment, tweeting:

But according to Lions247, he’s still 100 percent in on Penn State. With the way he’s been playing, let’s hope so.
