Elite 11 Pac-12 Quarterback Edition: Max Browne, Troy Williams, Jared Goff Interviews

The Elite 11 camp has a few future Pac-12 quarterbacks participating. SB Nation's own Scott Enyeart was able to make his way to the Elite 11 this year, and he was able to manage to land a bunch of interviews with some of the best young quarterback prospects in the nation

Here are the video interviews of three of the Pac-12 commits.

Max Browne - Committed to USC

First coaches rankings placed Browne 7th; moved up to 5th in second set of rankings, and should be a shoo-in to be one of the Elite 11. Mike Farrell of Rivals has this report about his impressions of Browne in a feature he did for Sports Illustrated.

Browne has moments in which he appears just average, but he always seems to rebound by making a string of terrific throws. Every time doubts arise that he's the best quarterback in the country, Browne drops a few amazing long balls over defenders or makes an advanced read in a 7-on-7 drill that exemplifies his sky-high potential. The USC commit still needs to speed up his release clock and cut down on his lapses, but his accuracy, vision and positional smarts make up for it.


Troy Williams - Committed to Washington

Williams didn't distinguish himself early, but moved into the top 11 in the second set of rankings, placing 9th and giving him a chance to make the final list. Farrell talks about his early impressions in the same SI column.

Williams is another player who tends to drop his elbow at times, but his ball always comes out quickly -- and typically with a tight spiral. Very few quarterbacks get the ball to the target, whether in one-on-one drills or 7-on-7 sessions, with more speed than the Washington commit.

Jared Goff - Committed to Cal

First coaches rankings placed Goff 4th, although he fell to 7th in second set of rankings, he has a good shot to make the final Elite 11 list. Farrell gave his report on Goff in his initial impressions column.

Goff is an accurate short and intermediate passer, but his arm strength downfield can be shaky. Though he has a good throwing motion, the ball tends to float on him. But this is a plus: Goff has one of the quickest releases of all the quarterbacks in attendance.
