Justin Burke is a busy guy these days.
The coach at Dodge City, Kan., has been hosting coaches with solid trio of Division I prospects in the class of 2008. The headliner of the group is quarterback Kale Pick, but quite a few schools are very interested in receiver Mykael Thompson and defensive end Tanner Turley.
But at this point, Pick is the main attraction.

"Tim McCarty from Kansas State was also in the building today. Both of these guys were here to see Kale and Mykael."
They won't be the last either.
"Kevin Wilson from the University of Oklahoma and Jim Gush from SMU will be here (Tuesday)," Burke said.
"Coach (Mark) Mangino and coach (Brandon) Blaney from KU will be here Thursday. We are also expecting James Shibest from Arkansas and Dave Arnold from Colorado State. All of them are interested in Mykael, some in Tanner Turley and most of them are definitely recruiting Kale Pick."
At this point, Pick has KU and Iowa State at the top of his list with offers from both schools. He's also picked up an offer from SMU recently, to go along with an earlier one from Colorado State.
As a junior, Pick threw for 1,779 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also completed 55 percent of his passes and only had six interceptions.
As it stands right now, Pick would like to make a final decision about his future in the next couple of months, but much of that depends on what new offers he receives in the coming months and what new schools become involved in his recruitment.
Thompson was Pick's top pass catcher as a junior and he'll definitely be a guy that schools take a long look at in the spring.
