Patrick Towles is getting some major national press as he hits the High School Camp circuit this summer. Here are a few comments from ESPN and others that talk about his rising prospects and some of the things that he needs to work on. This foreshadows what will likely be a very enjoyable football season this fall. Most of the quotes reference his performance at the California Elite 11 Quarterback camp but he has attended other camps in Ohio.
Raw is the best way to describe Towles. His playmaking ability and penchant for keeping plays alive cannot be quantified in this setting, however, this environment gives him a picture of how much he will need to refine and smooth out his mechanics if he wants to be a potent passer, not just a thrower playing street ball. He has the frame, feet and athleticism to flourish in a spread setting.
