LINCOLN — It's the best class of in-state football prospects since 2008, and two Omaha Creighton Prep prospects — quarterback Easton Stick and wide receiver R.J. Urzendowski — are a big part of the reason why. Neither has FBS offers yet, but both are on the radars of Midwestern programs and both will hit the combine/camp circuit this spring and summer. It starts with a Rivals camp in St. Louis this weekend.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Stick threw for 2,062 yards and 17 touchdowns last year. Good arm — better escapability. The kid can scramble for first downs and buy time for downfield throws. What Prep coach Chris Nizzi likes most, though, is what Stick doesn't do: Turn the ball over. Just four interceptions.
