Pierce Clarkson takes part in the Elite 11 Finals
Charles Power

Pierce Clarkson was among the 20 quarterbacks to participate in the Elite 11 Finals. Clarkson showed off his polish and developed skill set in drill work. The 6-foot, 185-pounder did not appear to be as physically gifted as most of his fellow finalists, but has a high floor due to his level of development.


Pierce Clarkson shines as top performer Battle Vegas
Sam Spiegelman National Recruiting Analyst

Pierce Clarkson had a compelling case as the best quarterback at Battle Vegas. The Louisville commitment is a student of the game and plays with astounding confidence, and it translates onto the field. The On3 Consensus four-star quarterback seizes up defenses and attacks carefully, but is also well-equipped to attack downfield and make off-schedule throws. He has a smooth delivery; is proficient and accurate, and balances an efficient approach with shots downfield. Arrow is pointing up.
