Texas Commit Jerrod Heard Selected For Elite 11 Finals

2014 Longhorn QB recruit Jerrod Heard was selected for the prestigious Elite 11 Finals, where he'll receive additional professional level QB tutelage, learning from some of the best in the business.

There's no telling how any QB prospect will ultimately pan out at the college level, but he fits my perfect profile for the college game. He burst on to the scene as a sophomore as the successor to JD Walsh at Denton Guyer. And that's when he first got my attention. As a junior, Heard led Denton Guyer to the state championship. Where he demonstrated his will to win and a flair for the dramatic, accounting for all 7 Denton Guyer touchdowns in a 48-37 win over Georgetown. A win in which Denton Guyer trailed 30-14 halfway through the 3rd quarter.

Heard threw for 189 yards in that game (including scores of 71 and 31 yards) and rushed for 143 yards (110 in the second half). For the season, Heard rushed and passed for 2,000+ yards in each category, combining for a total of 52 passing and rushing touchdowns.
