Tavien St. Clair is the most accurate quarterback at the Elite 11 Finals.

The Ohio State quarterback commit won the accuracy challenge, a competition in which quarterbacks are tested on their ability to hit stationary targets downfield, during the second night of competition Wednesday.

St. Clair’s accuracy challenge score of 67 was nine points better than the second-place score of USC quarterback commit Julian Lewis. By comparison, the gap between Lewis’ second-place score and the eighth-place score of eventual Elite 11 MVP winner Keelon Russell was only eight points.

St. Clair also completed 16 of 20 passes during Wednesday’s pro day competition, which was won by Lewis. Lewis is one of only two quarterbacks ranked ahead of St. Clair in 247Sports’ composite rankings for the 2025 class along with LSU commit Bryce Underwood, who did not participate in the Elite 11 Finals.

As a result of his strong showings in both of Wednesday’s competitions, St. Clair entered the final day of Elite 11 Finals with the lead in the MVP race. Alabama quarterback commit Keelon Russell, however, ended up beating out St. Clair for MVP honors following the 7-on-7 competition.

According to On3, Russell completed 19 of 25 passing attempts with five touchdowns in his 7-on-7 session while St. Clair went 11-for-19 with two touchdowns. The Elite 11 staff ultimately gave Russell the MVP award based on his more statistically efficient performance, though St. Clair still put his passing ability on display in the 7-on-7 competition.
