Future Ohio State quarterback Tavien St. Clair proved his place among the best high school quarterbacks in the country at the Elite 11 Finals this week in Los Angeles. This prestigious event, which has produced many NFL and college stars, started on Tuesday night and concluded on Thursday afternoon with 19 quarterbacks from across the country in attendance.

St. Clair’s highlight came during Wednesday’s accuracy challenge, where he scored a high of 67 points, earning the “Alpha Dog” title from 247Sports after each of the first two days. The Elite 11 staff also ranked him at the top after the first two days.

The event concluded with a 7-on-7 competition on Thursday, where a Texas native committed to Alabama delivered a strong performance to earn the MVP honor.

St. Clair, a five-star prospect from Bellefontaine, Ohio, is the second-ranked player in the 2025 recruiting class according to 247Sports. He earned his spot in the Elite 11 Finals after impressing at the Elite 11 Regionals in Upper Arlington, Ohio, in late May.

While the Alabama commit was named the MVP, 247Sports experts believed St. Clair was the standout performer, particularly noting his accuracy and consistency throughout the week. According to 247Sports director of scouting Andrew Ivins, St. Clair has demonstrated significant growth and skill, making him one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2025 cycle. Ivins highlighted St. Clair’s command as a passer, his ability to handle tight coverage, and his athleticism in evading pass rushers and gaining yards on the ground.

Bruce Feldman of The Athletic praised St. Clair’s physical presence and strong arm, comparing him to former Ohio State commit Dylan Raiola. Feldman noted that St. Clair’s consistent performance throughout the Elite 11 Finals and his potential to be special at the next level set him apart.

St. Clair plans to focus on his senior season with the Bellefontaine Chiefs after a stellar junior year where he passed for 3,083 yards and 37 touchdowns with just six interceptions, and rushed for 352 yards and four touchdowns. His performance at the Elite 11 Finals has only increased the excitement for his future at Ohio State.
