Report: Elway's son, Jack, verbally commits to Arizona State
DENVER -- Quarterback Jack Elway, son of Hall of Famer John Elway, has verbally committed to playing for Arizona State, the Rocky Mountain News reported Saturday.
The younger Elway has thrown for 1,677 yards and 21 touchdowns this season at Cherry Creek High School in Denver. He visited Arizona State last weekend, watching the unbeaten Sun Devils beat Washington, 44-20.
John Elway, who was an all-American at Stanford before helping the Denver Broncos to two Super Bowl titles, has been serving as Cherry Creek's quarterbacks coach this season.
Cherry Creek coach Greg Critchett said he hasn't spoken with his quarterback about his college commitment but had heard from players and coaches that he had chosen Arizona State.
"He'll be great there," Critchett said. "His style is perfect for them. He can run and move around in the pocket. He's one of those kids where, even if you didn't know his last name, you'd say, 'That's a kid I want on my team.' "
Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson was offensive coordinator on the staff of Jack Elway Sr., John's father at San Jose State from 1979 to 1981.
