Tyrone Swoopes Hoping To Improve At Elite 11

There's no shortage of people who believe that the Elite 11 camp is an extremely important event for the maturation and development of Texas commit Tyrone Swoopes as a quarterback, especially given the high-level coaching that he is currently receiving there. It was the belief here well before Swoopes notably struggled at The Opening, prompting a great deal of overreaction (ahem, UTSP), and the re-classification of the future Longhorn as an athlete.

CBSSports.com writer Bryan Fischer agrees about the importance of doing well there:

Future Longhorn Tyrone Swoopes did not have a good weekened at The Opening and is hoping to use the Elite 11 to bounce back. It's clear this will be his biggest test as a passer in his high school career and it will be interesting to see how he responds to everything from reading defenses to throwing the ball hundreds of times each day."

The early returns on day one were positive, according to Fischer:

For Scout's Scott Kennedy, however, it was mostly more of the same, even if that was kind of a good thing:

As has been the trend for Swoopes, he improved during the second day after some of the struggles that Kennedy mentioned:

Tyrone Swoopes: Swoopes' physical tools aren't in question. He possesses size, good athleticism, and a strong arm. Fresh off a less than stellar performance at The Opening, the Texas commit was pressing a bit on day one but settled down on day two and delivered some nice passes.

Unfortunately, there hasn't been a lot of information emerging about Swoopes' performances during the first three days (besides possibly some commentary from ESPN analyst Tom Luginbill that I don't care to spend several minutes watching in the hopes that he comments on him).

However, SB Nation's own Scott Enyeart was able to catch up with Swoopes for an interview that follows after the jump.
