The Elite 11 Finals kicked off on Monday, with Penn State commit Christian Veilleux quickly establishing himself as one of the best quarterbacks at the event.
Veilleux has only played high school football in America for two years, but he still outperformed a handful of higher-rated prospects on Day 1.
Full rundown of Day 1 at the @Elite11 coming soon. But in my opinion, your top 5 on the night are:— Parker Thune (@ParkerThune) June 30, 2020
1) Caleb Williams, uncommitted
2) Luke Altmyer, #Noles commit
3) Christian Veilleux, #PennState commit
4) Garrett Nussmeier, #geauxtigers commit
5) Miller Moss, #USC commit
The 6'3 signal-caller showed off some serious arm strength and accuracy. You're not going to find too many high schoolers who can make a throw as pretty as this one.
The receivers had a tough time on Monday, so Veilleux even decided to jump in and catch some passes. He made sure Taylor Stubblefield knew he could hold his own.
The first Canadian quarterback to ever be invited to the Elite 11 Finals, Veilleux shared a message to all the young signal-callers back in his home country.

Sports Illustrated put together their ranking of all 20 quarterbacks who participated with Veilleux checking in at No. 9. The SI team said: "The Penn State pledge made consistent throws to all three levels with a couple 'wow' throws mixed in."
