Cornerback Valdez Showers (Madison Heights, Mich./Madison) is considered one of the top defensive prospects in the Midwest, but a recent camp showing even surprised him.

"I went down to the University of Florida and was offered a scholarship." Showers said. "It made me take a step back and now I realize that I could play at the BCS level in any conference."

In addition to the Gators, Showers has been offered by Iowa, Illinois, Auburn, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Cincinnati and Central Michigan.
