My No. 20 prospect -- QB/DB Tom Zbikowski (6-0, 190, 4.35) of Buffalo Grove, Ill. -- is not only the state's top athlete, I also consider him to be one of the nation's top QB and DB prospects. In fact, Nebraska has already told him that he's as good a player as Eric Crouch was at this stage.

Tom Zbikowski is a top QB and DB prospect.
The Cornhuskers were one of the first schools to offer him, and he already has close to 40 offers. He's not your typical player: Besides being a lights-out running QB, he's a potential superstar at FS or CB and is also probably the top amateur boxer in Illinois.
