A look at some players to watch at Friday's Oakland Elite 11 regional camp.

QB Cooper Bateman (Salt Lake City/Cottonwood)
Bateman earned his invite to the Elite 11 finals, set for late July in Redondo Beach, Calif., with a solid showing at the Dallas regional event. He committed to Alabama on Wednesday over offers from Auburn, Florida, LSU, Arkansas and others. The nation's No. 6-rated pocket passer and the top player in Utah, Bateman -- 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds -- throws an excellent deep ball, shows good accuracy, poise and intelligence.
