Caring Is Creepy: Have a seat, Jay Scheel

Scheel started his high school career as a receiver. Midway through his sophomore season, the starting QB for Union High went down with an injury. Scheel stepped in and and stepped up. He helped leads the Knights to the school's first ever state football championship.

Scheel, who was ranked as the No. 3 player in the state of Iowa entering his senior season, committed to Iowa over a year ago. His commitment came at about the same time that top-rated offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher announced his intention to play for the Hawkeyes. Pierschbacher changed his mind, but Scheel never publicly wavered. He played quarterback at Union High, but is almost certain to end up at receiver for Iowa. Scheel was a four-star recruit under 247's calculations and originally a four-star commit elsewhere, but a sluggish senior season (and, let's face it, lack of drama) moved him down slightly. No matter. He's a five-star in our hearts.
