Not much but rivals has a paywalled write up which ranks Shane 5th for the day. It basically says he had the best velocity of anybody there but his accuracy was a little off. Also makes mention of the fact he was rocking Michigan gear!
We don't know that Gardner is moving to WR. That's just a rumor.
Hope he learns accuracy, 5th isn't very good for a kid that finished 2nd last year to the no. 1 qb in the country.
I also hope he learns to never have an off day after flying across the country. ;-)
Not to mention I believe they invite 12 to the (11), and 5th is still top half of the best...
... and the analysts are saying that this year's group is much more talented and deeper than recent years' groups.
I think you have to win the competition to get invited. I know there are more regionals, but you would like to see the number 2 qb in the nation do better. Im just in a cranky mood this week though so forgive my pessimism.
In 2004, Chad Henne was the #3 (Rivals) and #4 (Scout) HS QB behind Rhett Bomar, Anthony Morelli, and Xavier Lee (Scout only). Looking back, I'm very glad Michigan landed the 3rd/4th best HS QB.
Also in that same year, Calvin Johnson was ranked "only" the #6 (Rivals) HS WR.
What I'm trying to say is this: Shane will be just fine.
I looked back at that class on rivals after seeing your comment and I think I recognized less than 10 of the top 50. Hopefully our 2013 monster class fares better.
Semi-related: everytime I look back at the 2004 rankings and see Leon Hart (OL) on the list, I always confuse him with Leon Hart (RB), aka Mike Hart.
an off day is an off day. everybody has them. yesterday he was said to do great, and it's the first camp of the year. he will be fine

Here is analysis of Shane's performance by Tom Luginbill
Warning: Not very positive
I'd rather have people telling him the things he needs to work on rather than just telling him how awesome he is all the time. The truth is, EVERY high school QB has stuff they need to work on in order to be good in college. You can teach stuff like footwork, taking stuff off the ball, reading the defense, etc. But much like speed, you can't teach raw arm strength.
Yeah, if I had to pick one thing, I'd take accuracy over arm strength any day. But Morris is still super young. He has a lot fo time to learn all this stuff. The fact that he already has a cannon for an arm just means that if he gets the other stuff to click, he'll be awesome.
says he has one of the best arms he's seen in the last several years, and that there's no question about his talent. Needs to improve footwork, consistency, and accuracy. He's only using the one speed right now, and that's the fastball. Has to incorporate different speeds and more touch.
I saw a lot of touch throws and very accurate balls on his film, so it's a little surprising (of course they are by definition highlights). Maybe Shane gets in these environments and really wants to show he's got the strongest arm, starts really zinging every throw. But what the hell do I know
It sounded to me like Luginbill likes Morris and his talent, just noting some work he needs.
