The Elite 11 is a showcase of the best high school quarterbacks in the country. The seniors-to-be are put through rigorous tests, both mentally and physically, in order to claim one of the best titles a young signal-caller can hope to achieve. The prospects are given an expansive playbook, and are expected to memorize the plays in order to perform in 7-on-7 drills later in the week.

After displaying impressive leadership, arm strength and accuracy, Haskins was labeled as one of the Elite 11 quarterbacks., out of 18 total participants Haskins came on strong towards the end of the competition, and rose up the charts as the final list of quarterbacks was announced. He was second heading into the final day.

During the event, a report came out that Haskins was considering taking an official visit to the University of Florida, but in an interview with SB Nation, Haskins's dad refuted any sort of rumor about the visit.

Head coach Randy Edsall lost out on three-star Virginia defensive end Carlos Basham. The 6'4, 225-pound defender chose the Demon Deacons over Maryland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Old Dominion. Basham is the 95th-ranked weak side defensive end in the class of 2016 and the 57th-ranked player in the state of Virginia.

There were no new offers reported this week.
