Yesterday I wrote about Brehaut blowing up at Elite 11 regional camp in Vegas. Well Brehaut's great performance paid off as he earned a spot in the national Elite 11 competition, which will be held in Southern California later this summer (July 21-24). From GatorBait.net (rival.com's Florida site):
It has been a good past month for Los Osos (Calif.) quarterback Richard Brehaut. After a slow start to his recruitment, the talented signal caller saw the scholarship offers pour in during the spring evaluation period, culminating in landing his dream offer from UCLA at the end of May.
The last time we saw Brehaut, he was winning QB MVP honors at the NIKE Camp at Stanford and he picked up another huge honor this past weekend at the final Elite 11 regional workout in Las Vegas, being invited to the national Elite 11 following the event.
"Oh man, that has been a big goal of mine for awhile now," Brehaut said of earning the Elite 11 nod.
"That's why I came out here to Vegas this weekend, to try and earn a spot at the camp. I've heard a lot about the camp but it really became a dream of mine my sophomore year when I attended one of the Elite 11 regional workouts.
"I'm looking forward to getting out there and competing against the other top quarterbacks and learning as much as I can. I'm just honored to be a part of the camp and it has been an amazing last month for me.
"First committing to UCLA, my dream school, and now being selected to the Elite 11, I really couldn't ask for anything more."
Congrats to Richard. Hope he keeps up his great summer leading to a big senior year.
Meanwhile, some good news from the hoops front. Mr. Morgan has checked into Westwood:
Jill Painter has reported that J'Mison Morgan, who originally signed with LSU to play basketball, attended his first summer school class at UCLA today, making his commitment to UCLA official.
Also around Bruin Walk this summer will be couple of players from the football team:
Football players Kevin Prince and Kai Maiava (transfer from Colorado) attended their first summer school classes as well.
Now if we can get Donovan Edwards to take care of business in classroom, it will take away the sting from injury re. Sean Sheller.
