Kansas recruit is greatest QB ever, just ask him

Earlier this week Turner Gill and the Kansas football team got some good news as quarterback recruit Brock Berglund committed to the school.  Berglund, from Colorado's Valor Christian, is considered a three-star prospect by Rivals, and is considered the 13th best quarterback prospect in the country.  Though if there are 12 quarterbacks in the 2011 class better than Berglund, they must be insanely freaking awesome.

The Lawrence Journal-World caught up with Berglund this week, and when he was asked to describe himself as a quarterback, the kid set the bar rather high.

“I would say Tim Tebow, Michael Vick and Peyton Manning kind of all put together,” Berglund said. “I’m not comparing myself to those guys or anything like that, but if I had to say what my skill-set was like, I would say those three guys.”

I don't know about you, but if I were a college football coach, I'd take just one of those three quarterbacks.  A hybrid of all three?  I think it's time for a contract extension!  Now, obviously, it wouldn't be fair to take Berglund's description at his word.  He is just a high school kid, after all.  So I decided to do some research, and it turns out he has the skills to back up the bravado.

I unearthed some exclusive footage of Berglund's high school games.  Here's some of what I found.

On this play, following a kickoff, Berglund lined up at running back.

 

As if that run wasn't amazing enough, let's remember that Brock can throw the ball too.  Here he is just messing around during practice.



And he was doing it left-handed!  Kansas is never going to lose again!

He seems to be in the mold of 70s icons Lynn Dickey, Steve Grogan, and Bobby Douglass.
