Four-star 2022 Miami Hurricanes quarterback commit Jacurri Brown showcased his skills and talent at the Elite 11 camp last week into the July 4 weekend. Brown has a big arm and is the prototype dual-threat QB, but needs to continue to work on his accuracy. Rivals.Com observed Brown needs to become more consistent.

Jacurri Brown has been a great high school QB with 3,387 passing yards, 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. A 52.8 completion percentage is the Achilles heel for Brown. As a junior in 2020 Brown completed 47.8 of his passes after having a 56.3 completion percentage in each of his first two seasons in high school.

Brown has rushed for 3,323 44 TDs with 14 100-yard games. In each of the last two seasons, Brown has topped 1,000 yards rushing. Getting an invite to participate at Elite 11 is prestigious. Brown was unable to be consistent enough last week to be named one of the Elite 11 QBs.

Brown was able to show off his big arm at the Elite 11. At 6’4, 205 pounds, Brown has the size to absorb hits in the pocket and as a runner. The inconsistency Brown had at Elite 11 needs to be improved if he is going to develop into a steady Power Five QB. Born needs to raise his play to another level as a high school senior.

"Jacurri Brown Brown had his good moments where he put zip on the ball and he hit receivers. He’s a big-bodied quarterback who can harness that strength to make throws. But the consistency was not there all week.On film, Brown makes all the throws and can throw on the run amazingly well but we didn’t see that from the Miami commit at this event."

Competiting at Elite 11 and getting coaching from the QBs at the 2021 site in Manhattan Beach, California should help Brown in the future. Once he gets to Miami in 2022 Brown will compete with Tyler Van Dyke, a 2020 Elite 11 participant and 2021 Miami signee Jake Garcia. The Miami QB room has a bright future.

D’Eriq King the incumbent for Miami at QB entering 2021 will mentor Garcia and Van Dyke this season. Head coach Manny Diaz has spoken about the impact King has had on the Hurricanes QB room to help change the culture. Diaz realizes the importance of having a QB be the leader of a team. Brown has shown leadership ability already.

dark. Next. Jacurri Brown bright future despite not being named Elite 11

Brown, three-star wide receiver Landon Ibieta and four-star cornerback Khamauri Rogers are the only commits to Miami in the Class of 2022. Brown has been a leader trying to recruit other players to Miami in the Class of 2022. Taking that initiative shows that Brown is the take charge leader Miami needs at QB.
