Aaron Cedeno - Midlands Recruiting Reporter
Friday- Shawnee Mission (Kan.) East vs. Olathe (Kan.) East
A 3-star prospect and the top wide receiver talent in the Sunflower State, Elliot Faerber picked up an early offer from the University of Illinois and wasted little time in pulling the trigger. Though he committed in the spring, he's hardly been complacent. The big WR has grown to 6-foot-5 and hard work in the weight room has him weighing in at more than 200 pounds. Though his size may make him a potential tight end down the road, Faerber is a legitimate big-time talent at wide receiver with soft hands, crisp route-running ability and deceptive speed.
