He showed out at the badgers 7 on 7 event earlier this month
QB, 6-5/220, Edgewood (Ky.) Dixie Heights - Class of 2012
This was the national coming-out party for Zeke Pike. He already holds several offers but his performance in Tuscaloosa cements him as one of the nation's truly elite quarterbacks in the 2012 class. With only one other player on his team that held a scholarship offer, Pike did not have the supporting cast of some of the other teams at the event yet he still led his squad to within one possession of the championship game. Pike has great size and feet, a big arm and the type of confidence and personality that you look for in your leader. Pike entered himself into an early discussion as to who top quarterback is in the class of 2012.
I've seen him play many times since he's right across the river from me. He's an interesting prospect. I think most of his early offers are based on the hope of long-term potential. He does have great size and a strong arm. After that he is extremely raw in most facets of his game. It will really be interesting to follow his development the next 2 years.
I just hope for his sake he's not another 6'5 235 pound Rob Schoenhoft from this area who blew up at all these camps, received offers from all over the country, but was always a terrible QB. (ended up about 5th team at Ohio State, then transferred to Delaware and ended up a backup TE I believe) Same with Andrew Hendrix last year. Had the size and arm schools coveted but he was NOT a good high school QB at Moeller.
Pike's dad played at Georgia Tech I believe. I'm not sure if that will have any bearing on his decision or not. Probably won't considering the offense they run, but I guess you never know.
