Devin Gardner impresses at Elite 11 camp

Devin Gardner (Inkster, MI) has impressed many at the Elite 11 Quarterback's camp in California. Here are a few reviews from scouting analyists:

"He gets depth on his seven step drops very easily as one might expect with his athleticism. His quick drop allows him some extra time to scan the field from a "ready" position, rather than the moment longer it might take another quarterback to reach his seven step drop. After his seven step drop, Gardner threw a rope on a crossing route that was his best throw of the camp." 

"Gardner is quick in his release on the short routes. There is very little time between when he decides where he's throwing and when the ball arrives at its target. His release lengthens considerably when he's loading up to throw the ball downfield, and it gives defenders a split second longer to recover. Once he learns to trust his arm strength, and keep his compact throwing motion, he'll force teams to stay honest and guard the deep third of the defense. "

Tom Lemming rates Gardner extremely highly, top 10 player in the nation if i remember rightly, and I'm sure Devin will have a great season to possibly earn a 5th star from major recruitng services.
