It’s obvious that Michigan’s 5-star quarterback commit Dylan McCaffrey is talented. McCaffrey is rated as the No. 22 player nationally in the Class of 2017 and the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in his class.
But one of McCaffrey’s Elite 11 coaches took the hype to the next level.
“Dylan McCaffrey is a superstar athlete,” the coach told OregonLive.com. “When you talk about his pedigree and his family, he knows the expectations and what people are saying about him and his family. It all rolls off his back. He takes it in stride.”
McCaffrey also has football in his blood. He’s the son of former NFL wide receiver Ed McCaffrey and the brother of Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, who was in contention for the Heisman Trophy last season.
He is now competing in the Elite 11 camp, a skills competition among the best quarterback prospects in the nation, at The Opening in Oregon. The 6-foot-5, 196-pound quarterback threw for 2,800 yards and 27 touchdowns while rushing for 592 yards and 13 touchdowns for Valor Christian High School (Colorado) as a junior.
The accolades are already here, but the best is still yet to come for this immensely talented prospect.
