    Did anyone else see this on ESPN last week? I saw that Houston made it into the 11 and so did Zeke Pike. But then Gunner Kiel was on the outside looking in.

    The surprising thing was a qb from Arkansas by the name of Neal Burcham, who is unrated by Rivals and Scout, was chosen as an MVP. He looked like a very talented quarterback but not much meat on his bones. Looked like someone we should at least look into, since at the time his only offer was to Arkansas State.

    I watched some of it. It was interesting how they do the camp. It also goes to show you that the star rating is so bogus. Not taking away from the 4-5 star kids, but for everyone of them there will be a sleeper that is in a small market and doesn't get the publicity. Iowa has long been known for finding them.

    That doesn't make the star system bogus. The stars are just odds of how EARLY a kid can make a difference. A 2 star kid can still be a stud it is just that the odds are, he won't be good till junior or senior year while a 4 or 5 star is more developed EARLY.

    ask Jake how credible an invite to an 'elite 11' camp is. i'm sure you can buy into these things.
