BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Texas quarterback commit Jerrod Heard (Denton, Texas/John H. Guyer) drew some of the highest praise of the weekend from Trent Dilfer after several workouts at the Elite 11 finals.

“I was worried,” said Dilfer, head coach of the Elite 11 program. “I didn’t know how he’d handle this environment.”

But Heard, 138th in the ESPN 300 and the No. 5-rated dual-threat QB, has answered the challenge.
