Michigan 2016 quarterback commit Brandon Peters (Avon, Indiana) is in the driver's seat to earn one of the final spots in the Elite 11 finals, says Scout.com's Craig Biggins. (FREE)
With 10 players now invited, it’s going to be very difficult for the Elite 11 staff to decide on the remaining eight players as there wasn’t a whole lot separating the group of signal callers this weekend. If we had a vote, which we don’t, the next guy we would lock in would be Avon’s (Ind.) Brandon Peters.
Peters was in our top five on Saturday and was equally impressive on Sunday. He was smart and decisive with his throws during the 7v7, didn’t force passes that weren’t there and protected the football very well. When he did have a chance to go deeper down the field, he took advantage and was very accurate. The Michigan commit shows a lot of poise and his game translates very well to the next level.
Peters is a four-star prospect and the ninth-ranked pro-style quarterback in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite. He committed to Michigan back in April during the weekend of the Spring Game in Ann Arbor.
The Elite 11 Finals will be held next month during Nike's The Opening event in Beaverton, Oregon.
