Dante Moore, Jackson Arnold Named Elite 11 MVPs

Many of the top high school quarterback prospects in the nation are in Los Angeles this week, where they competed at the Elite 11 camp.

After the final day of competition, two different MVPs were named based on their performances. The Elite 11 camp itself named Oklahoma commit Jackson Arnold as its MVP, while the top-ranked uncommitted quarterback in the nation Dante Moore was chosen by Sports Illustrated as its MVP.

Moore, who’s coming off a Michigan state championship, is ranked No. 12 nationally in the Class of 2023 list overall, while Arnold is currently ranked No. 32 nationally, according to 247 Sports’ composite rankings. The two quarterbacks rank fourth and fifth position-wise in the country, respectively.

Elite 11 chooses its MVP based on the coaching staff’s input, while 50% is based on the players’ junior season film and performance, and the other 50% is determined by the camp evaluation and physical traits. Arnold ranked first on the Elite 11’s rankings heading into the final day as well.

Sports Illustrated’s John Garcia Jr. said Moore “virtually ran away” with the MVP award this week, based on SI’s composite scoring, which is based solely on performance at the camp. 

Moore is still waiting to announce where he will play in the fall of 2023, and right now, Notre Dame, Oregon, LSU and Texas A&M remain frontrunners for landing spots.
