Classic rookies from the Elites

As the Classic picture starts to clear up, it looks like seven Elite anglers will be heading for their first Bassmaster Classic in 2013. Fou—Nate Wellman, Yusuke Miyazaki, Brandon Card and Cliff Prince—made it through their standing in AOY points. Jeremy Starks and Jonathon VanDam are going by virtue of winning Elite events this season. Casey Scanlon is an Elite angler and will be fishing his first Classic in 2013, but he didn't get there through the Elites; Scanlon won a Central Open and will make it to the Classic through the Opens.
