The 2023 Elite 11 Finals event is almost here. Some of the nation’s top callers have already been invited to Los Angeles for the premier annual quarterback showcase, which takes place June 14-16.
Notable names such as Caleb Williams, Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Jameis Winston, Bryce Young, Jared Goff, Kyler Murray and Andrew Luck and many other NFL and college stars have competed in the event over the years. One more potential USC Trojan quarterback could be drafted into the Elite 11 fraternity this season. USC 2024 target Elijah Brown of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California, was recently announced as a finalist.

Brown is the No. 33 player in the nation and is the top-ranked uncommitted quarterback in the class.
With Dylan Raiola committed to the Georgia Bulldogs for 2024, it looks like Elijah Brown will soon be a USC Trojan.
The 6-foot-1 1/2, 197-pound senior has thrived on Mater Dei. He threw for 2,785 yards and 31 touchdowns last season while completing 68% of his passes. He is 29-1 as a starter with a state and national title under his belt.
“Brown plays with a poise and maturity rarely seen at the HS level,” said 247Sports national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins. “He has started every game since his first season and has never looked overwhelmed playing against top level competition. He is a very accurate pitcher and will stay in the pocket as long as possible to get a pitch He is also one of the better deep ball throwers and has a very natural feel for throwing in time and throwing players open He doesn’t run much but is a good athlete and does a good job of making that first pass rusher miss and extend a game.”
