Kirby Freeman made Elite 11. I think we all remember the 1 of 14 Nc State game.I seem to recall Preston Dewey getting hyped from that camp years ago. He got to Miami and looked like he belonged in D3. I think he just quit football all together after a year. Terrific eval from Jedd Fisch.
Has Miami been in contact?Some background on Kopp: (the Athletic background article highlights)
Kopp is a big dude, too, at 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds. The Houston St. Thomas passer understands why he has flown under the radar.
“Honestly, I’m so late on the scene for football,” Kopp said. “I always grew up playing AAU basketball, from fourth grade until this past year. That was literally my life. And football was in there, I still played football. But I never really took it as serious as I did basketball.”
He’s the youngest of four brothers in a family full of athletes. Braden played football at Vanderbilt, Miller plays basketball at Northwestern and Anderson plays basketball at Lamar. And Maddox can throw it down like the rest of them.
He backed up Miami’s Peyton Matocha at St. Thomas until his junior year. When he got his shot, he earned second-team all-state honors in TAPPS after throwing for 3,106 yards and 28 touchdowns and leading his squad to the state semifinals, where it lost to the same foe, Parish Episcopal.
He has spent the past few months training with Darrell Colbert Jr., along with fellow Elite 11 quarterback Kyron Drones, Miami’s D’Eriq King and Florida’s Kyle Trask, and vows it has made a huge difference in his arm strength, release and ball placement.
Good question. I don't think so - at least as of this event. UH seems to have the most buzz around him. Saw some SMU stuff too. He was offered by Wyoming right before the Elite 11. I think USC may have reached out to him after last night too. Saw a mention of that. Also Baylor and Maryland are new followers to his twitter. I suspect if he continues to get mentioned in the next two days he will get all kinds of attention.Has Miami been in contact?
I mean he's 6'5" and probably a d1 athlete, he should be dunking pretty easily at that height.Maddox is really athletic. He’s got video of him dunking in basketball games as part of his football highlights. He’s dunking with ease to. His arm is gonna get better as he solely dedicated to football.
