Austin Appleby named Elite 11 QB



Austin Appleby was named as a final Elite 11 quarterback.  The show airing on ESPN now is pretty awesome with Austin in the spotlight quite a bit.  He looks like a great prospect.  He appears to have a great attitude and work ethic.  He appeared in the front row of the classroom on the show taking notes.  Trent Dilfer told him his functional football intelligence is that of most college quarterbacks.  He said it goes to his work ethic and his will.  He also told Austin that he might be one his favorite people to have ever been around in his life.

In a chat, Greg Biggins from ESPN said...No doubt he performed and got better every day. He wasn't able to spit it as consistently as the other guys in the camp but from a cerebral standpoint, no one was better and he has a very nice upside to him, simply because he'll have no problems understanding a college defense and picking up the playbook as well.

Appleby won the Chalk Talk award whatever that means.  It was one of several awards. I think he actually was the last pick of the 11 but....

IU's Gunner Kiel didn't even make the cut when he was rated #1 or #2
