OSU quarterback commit Zane Flores opened the three-day Elite 11 Finals with a strong start on Tuesday, performing like one of the 10 best signal-callers at the camp. He continued that hot start on Wednesday, as he remained a Top 10 talent at the event, according to 247Sports, and performed like a Top 8 talent, according to On3Sports.

Here’s what Greg Biggins of 247 wrote after watching the competition — which was a pro-day workout that involved a point system — live and in person. Grades were comprised partly off of accuracy but also off of physical tools and their projection to the college level.

Another participant who started off hot, Flores looked to have terrific rhythm in the early going of his script and displayed great feel near the goal line. He was solid on his deep heaves, was nearly perfect on the rail shot and was accurate on back-shoulder attempts. Flores has some really intriguing physical upside and should continue to get stronger, which could make him one of the bigger steals in this class

Here’s a few highlights from day two of the competition, where he turned heads with his pocket presence and arm strength.

Uncommitted QB Dante Moore is No. 1 in the rankings entering Thursday while OU commit Jackson Arnold and USC commit Malachi Nelson are Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

The rankings completed by the Elite 11 staff don’t have Flores quite as high — he was outside the Top 10 after day one, and there is no ranking after day two — which means the final day Thursday will be an important one for Flores. It will consist of the 7-on-7 portion of the event, where Flores’ mobility and accuracy should help him finish on a high note as he tries to earn the distinction of being considered one of the Top 11 QB prospects in the country.
