Elite 11: Zach Kline Impresses With Accuracy & Arm Strength On Day 4

From shaky to solid to firm ground, San Ramon Valley High quarterback Zach Kline continues to ascend up the performance-meter at the Elite 11 camp in Malibu. After having trouble controlling his arm strength early on through the camp, he managed to get his accuracy down by Day 3, and now it looks as if Kline managed to mesh it altogether for his best performance at the camp. Barton Simmons of 247Sports with the report.

Kline is still bubbling with energy and there has certainly been no drop off in arm strength. Kline came out and made all the throws fitting his passes into some tight windows that very few quarterbacks would be able to hit. One of his best throws of the day came on a perfectly placed ball on a vertical route off of a double move. Though the receiver dropped the football, hurting Kline’s completion percentage, the throw was on the money and he showed natural leadership by immediately picking the receiver up and praising the route.

This is the second day in a row that Kline has been praised for his ball placement, which should come very well in handy in breaking down the zone defenses of the Pac-12. By combining it with his arm strength he now looks like one of the best quarterbacks on the field (besides the currently immaculate BYU commit Tanner Magnum, who continues to shine in all areas). It's starting to look like Cal has a complete quarterback who could challenge for playing time very soon after his arrival in Berkeley.
