Tennessee quarterback commit George MacIntyre is not competing in the Elite 11 Finals this week as he heals from a throwing-hand injury, the 2025 quarterback revealed through an Instagram story on Monday night.

MacIntyre reportedly has a minor injury to his throwing hand that will keep him out of this summer competition but does not project to hinder his senior season coming up at Brentwood Academy this fall. On3 Sports’ Hayes Fawcett reported that MacIntyre has stitches in his throwing-hand pointer finger.

“Injury didn’t heal in time and won’t be able to make it, good luck to y’all boys tho,” MacIntyre posted to Instagram in a story.

The Elite 11 Finals began on Tuesday and will run through Thursday, which is why MacIntyre’s announcement came on Monday night as he waited to see if he could participate. The five-star quarterback was one of the finalists selected after a standout performance in the Elite 11 Oxford Regional in early April.

The in-state quarterback is listed as the No. 20 overall prospect in the class, the No. 4 quarterback, and the top-ranked player from the state of Tennessee according to 247 Composite rankings. MacIntyre is Tennessee’s lone five-star commit in the class but has been working hard to add other high-level prospects around him.

MacIntyre was on Rocky Top last weekend for a big recruiting event hosted by Tennessee and had the chance to continue building relationships with players such as five-star offensive tackle David Sanders Jr., five-star wide receiver Jamie Ffrench, and five-star receiver Caleb Cunningham.

MacIntyre took pictures with many of the offensive linemen that he is hoping to add to the class, including one with Sanders – the No. 2 overall player in the class and the top-ranked 2025 offensive tackle.

Tennessee quarterback Nico Iamaleava received an invitation to the Elite 11 Finals in the summer of 2022 but declined to participate in the event. Despite not playing, though, Iamaleava marked Tennessee’s 10th Elite 11 Finals selection dating back to the event’s inaugural year in 1999 joining Casey Clausen (1999), John Rattay (1999), Jonathan Crompton (2004), Tyler Bray (2009), Joshua Dobbs (2012), Jarrett Guarantano (2015), Brian Maurer (2018), Harrison Bailey (2019), and Tayven Jackson (2021). MacIntyre became Tennessee’s 11th all-time finals selection despite having to back out at the last minute.
