Crazy numbers: Manziel, Nova, and Rettig

Johnny and Teddy - Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Phil Steele's College Football Preview hits news stands June 24. I got an early copy and also picked up his Frosh Report 2008-2014. It's a list of his rankings over those years.

Start with our latest Christmas present, Hayden Rettig. Take it for what it's worth, but in 2013, Steele had Rettig as the #16 QB. That was on an LSU recruiting class that he ranked #6 in the nation. RU's Chris Laviano was ranked #52 by Steele.

Now let's go back to 2011. Rutgers' recruiting class was ranked #26 by Steele. Texas A&M's came in at #38. Gary Nova was ranked the #27 QB, one behind Johnny Football (#26). In that same class, Braxton Miller was the #2 QB, Teddy Bridgewater #7, and Everett Golson (ND) #20.

Just for kicks, I looked for Blake Bortles, first round pick out of UCF. Steele doesn't have him anywhere on his lists.
