Do you know how to generate some buzz if you are a quarterback? How about by packing a cannon that can launch a ball 96-yards to go along with your 6-foot-6 frame? That’s exactly what Texas A&M commit Connor Blumrick did on Saturday.
After day two of the Elite 11 Finals, the Pearland (Texas) standout joined a group of fellow camp goers to show off their arm strength.
There is one very important disclaimer, however: they were launching Nerf balls.
Regardless of that, Blumrick really stood out when he launched a ball 96 yards through the air. Phil Murphy of ESPN had video of the throw, while also noting the signal-caller’s next throw actually went the full length of the field.
It’s tough not to be impressed with that.
Again, sure, it was a Nerf ball, but it still shows there is some raw arm talent there. And considering schools like LSU and Ole Miss also offered Blumrick, the Aggies have to be feeling pretty happy about their future gunslinger.
