    Was considered "Most Under-rated" at Elite 11 camp this summer

    ESPN article

    Most Underrated: Adam Pittser (Richmond-Burton; Richmond, Ill.)
    Did you expect anyone else? The only guy who entered the camp with exactly zero BCS schools drooling over him is sure to have a big-time offer come his way after proving his mettle this week. He was consistent, poised and constantly raved about by the counselors.

    and he was #2 on the MVP List.


    Most Likely to Play Early: Adam Pittser
    Pittser was the story of the week and one of the great success stories in the history of the Elite 11. Very few of the players in the camp had even heard of Pittser prior to the event and by the end of the event, many felt he was the top signal caller in the camp behind only Driskel.

    Pittser was a late 12th addition to the Elite 11 Quarterback camp.

    Others in attendance:

    Archie Bradley
    Jeff Driskel
    Cody Kessler
    Teddy Bridgewater
    Evan Crower
    Philip Ely
    Kiehl Frazier
    Everett Golson
    DeMarcus Smith
    Kendal Thompson
    J.W. Walsh

    http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootball/story/Pittser-surprising-big-names-at-elite-11-camp-072010

    Driskel was the MVP of the Elite 11 QB Camp. But guess who the MVP Runner-up was? Pittser.

    Here's what Rivals had to say about it:

    I was looking forward to this going up. I really like this kid. Bit of a question how he will adapt to a pro style offense tho, I believe he runs a run heavy attack in HS. Which is why he was such a surprise throwing the ball at the Elite 11 camp. his vids look damn good tho.

    Wing T offense and comes from a tiny little town of 800 people.

    He also smoked the competition at the Under Armour QB Camp this summer:

    Another quote from the Under Armour combine:

    (Dahlquist has more than 30 years of coaching experience, including a five-year run with Texas as offensive coordinator from 1992 to 1997.)

    Why do I get the "grasping at straws" feeling every time a new QB prospect... that doesn't even have CU as a possible... is added to the board? :huh:

    Sorry, the last 5 years keeps creeping into my head. :huh:

    The same reason I am trying desperately not to think about the last Elite 11 QB we signed...

    He had the best footwork of the QB's on that rivals yahoo video - look at his feet vs Andy Dalton for example. Much faster and precise than Dalton

    These camps all occurred last summer so the word was out, yet his offer list is still what it is. Curious given the accolades. The last thing mentioned on the yahoo.rivals tape at the 4:14 mark was he could do everything that QB guru Coach Johnson asked of him. Johnson is Nick Hirschman's QB guru.

    Good point on the Johnson connection.

    Regarding the lack of offers, I mentioned this in chat tonight and it's worth repeating: recruiting services fall in love with camp performance but coaches offer based on game film. We're talking about a kid who has no film compiled and only threw about 60 passes all season in the offense his school runs. Plus, it's a low level of competition because he plays for such a small school.

    This is exactly the type of kid who could be a top prospect who went almost completely under the BCS radar.

    Nik, do you know if JE put his eye on this guy or not? I checked the available qb list and this guy is the only possible one we can get with same, if not better, level with BB

    But those types of accolades usually merit at least one coach getting out to a game from Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin, Northwestern, etc. Richmond IL is 1 hours drive from Milwaukee airport.

    Could be a gem, and we need one. Maybe a coach from several of those schools want him but don't want to let the cat out of the bag and won't offer until January 28th or so, knowing he'd jump on a BCS offer?

    For some reason, that does not surprise me...I can't believe none of the other sickos on this board have razzed you about that. That will certainly end up as someone's quote.

    Saw it before I had my coffee, and it bothered me. Something was wrong, in a funny way. Now I know why. Thanks for pointing it out. Sicko. :lol:

    I've been waiting for months for someone to make this joke in Awini's profile thread. I even wrote some stuff to set it up. Nothing. I have been very disappointed in this board.

    Have to think that if offered he will wear black & gold instead of the poo & pee.

    Looks like he has the tools to be a good player, but probably needs a lot of work coming from that system. Hopefully we get him since we need a QB this cycle.
