The nation’s top-ranked 2015 quarterback, Ricky Town, was in action this weekend at the Elite 11 SoCal Regional. Town, an Alabama commit, is the No. 3 overall player in the class, according to 247Sports.
The Ventura, California native, had the most impressive performance at the camp. Unfortunately the No. 1 quarterback couldn’t compete with fellow Elite QB, Josh Rosen, as Rosen was unable to participate.
Town was vying for a spot in the Elite 11 Finals this summer in Oregon. Following is synopsis of his showing from 247’s Brian Perroni:
The five-star Alabama commitment certainly lived up to his billing as he was the most impressive player throughout the day. Though not a dual-threat quarterback by any means, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound passer showed very good agility in the drills early in the day. However, it was during the passing drills that he truly shined. Town has very good touch on the ball that allowed him to be accurate on short, intermediate and deep throws but he most impressive part of his game is how quick he releases the ball. He was able to look downfield, make a read and get the ball out of his hand quicker than any other player in attendance. It’s easy to see why the Crimson Tide went after him so early.
Town is one of five players already committed to the Tide for next year’s recruiting class.
