The annual Elite 11 competition for quarterbacks is coming up quickly, which saw the Elite 11 Selection Show air Thursday night on ESPNU, revealing the 25 finalists who have been invited to the camp. The most notable name? USC commit and the top overall quarterback, Max Browne.

This will be the first time since 2010, when Cody Kessler attended, that the Trojans will have a commit represented. Since the camp and competition started in 1999, there have been nine Trojans to take part, including starters Matt Leinart, John David Booty and Mark Sanchez, and busts Billy Hart, Aaron Corp and Jesse Scroggins.

The Elite 11 Finals will take place July 18-22 in Redondo Beach and include an addition player this go around, as chair Trent Dilfer added Shane Cockerville to the list at the last second, in what he called an hommage to just how stacked the Class of 2013 is.

Other notables to those in Southern California include Johnny Stanton and Troy Williams. Stanton is being billed a California version of Tim Tebow, despite the Rancho Santa Margarita quarterback not having as many offers as other signal callers in his class. Williams is a big body out of Narbonne in Harbor City, who will be seeking his second straight LA City Championship this fall, in addition to looking forward to suiting up for the Washington Huskies, after he committed earlier this month.
