Berkeley Elite 11 Workout

Austyn Carta-Samuels, DQB, San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep

Assets: Has a great frame coming in at 6 feet 1, 215 pounds and looks y athletic.
Needs improvement: He is really raw and just needs to keep getting reps this summer. He sometimes really presses himself and overthrows at times.
What was most impressive: His arm strength is actually very good for a dual-threat quarterback.
Conclusion: Received his first offer from Air Force this past weekend. He could be a real sleeper for anybody looking for an athletic and physical quarterback with above-average arm strength.
