Elite 11 Finals: Emory Williams, Malachi Singleton Pace the Field in Accuracy Gauntlet Rankings

Day 3 rankings feature the Miami commitment and Arkansas pledge at the top of the list.

REDONDO BEACH, Calif.—The 2022 Elite 11 Finals concluded with a renovated Accuracy Gauntlet and a 7-on-7 tournament to wrap up an exciting event loaded with top arms from across the country.

The accuracy gauntlet featured four rings in different areas of the field, and each quarterback was given four chances to zip a pass through each ring in two different, fast-paced throwing sessions. The first period had the signal-callers work within the structure and the second leg demanded the passers operate under duress while using their legs, each workout requiring pristine ball placement from start to finish.

Sports Illustrated’s Day 3 rankings, similar to the second day's pro pay, were created by grading all 18 passes that each quarterback made throughout the Accuracy Gauntlet on a scale of 1-3 — a score of "1" representing an off-target throw, a score of "2" representing a catchable ball and a score of "3" representing a money throw.

However, certain throws—deep shots, roll-outs and pressure situations—were assessed with multipliers influencing the grade, based on the difficulty of the pass. Ties were broken by the total number of money throws a given quarterback tossed.

(The 7-on-7 tournament sample did not affect the quarterback’s Day 3 scores)
