ProspectFIT’s Conner Smith Lights It Up at Elite 11 In Las Vegas – Offers Start Coming In

Travis High School, Richmond, TX. at Elite 11 this weekend in Las Vegas.
Conner Smith continues to take the wrapping paper of the prize for college recruiters as he travels through camp season this summer. This weekend Smith finished at the top of the heap at the Elite 11 West Regional in Las Vegas. According to sources at the camp, “Conner blew it up out here. He continues to frustrate some of the guys that THINK they are better QB’s than he is. They have a very hard time competing with Smith when he walks on the field.”
Contests like the Elite 11 are sometimes seen as credible ways to get noticed for high school prospects and most of the time they are. No one would argue, however, that some of these things become political popularity contests for the promoters and sponsors of the events to elevate their own stable of quarterbacks…especially California QB’s. In this competition the politics seemed to fade as Smith and another unheralded QB, Dustin Walton, lit it up in Las Vegas grabbing the eye of Rivals.com reporters and all that witnessed the camp.
Smith has received his first offer from Colorado State University with more promised by college coaches this week.
To quote the article from Rivals’ Jeremy Crabtree last Saturday:
“The biggest name at the even was Cal commitment and four-star recruit Kyle Boehm, but in the end it was three relatively unknown quarterbacks that had the best days. Conner Smith of Richmond, TX (Travis) and Dustin Walton of Ralton, N.M….all wowed onlookers with strong arms and accurate passes. All are heavily under-recruited…and they came into Saturday’s event hoping to improve their stock. That’s exactly what they did as throw for throw, they outperformed anybody else in this camp.”
