Elite 11 heads to Atlanta

Many top quarterback prospects from the Class of 2008 will head to Atlanta on Friday evening for the Elite 11 regional workout on the campus of Georgia Tech. Multiple prospects will be working on their skills and auditioning for a shot at making the Elite 11 quarterback camp, which annually showcases the top high school signal callers in the nation.

The following is a look at some of the prospects to watch that are slated to be at the event.

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Central's Tino Sunseri is scheduled to work out Friday night. The 6-foot, 180-pounder currently holds scholarship offers from Florida State, Louisville and Southern Mississippi and is getting serious attention from South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and others.

Sunseri's father Sal Sunseri was an All-American linebacker for the University of Pittsburgh and currently is an assistant coach for the NFL's Carolina Panthers. The younger Sunseri threw for more than 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns during his junior year.

Missouri, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Duke are among the early scholarship offers for Charlotte (N.C.) Latin signal caller Braden Hanson. The 6-foot-6, 200-pound lefty has a lot of upside and will get the chance to show he is more than just an intriguing prospect because of his size with a good showing on Friday.

Hanson threw for 2,695 yards and a whopping 39 touchdowns during his junior season at Latin.
