The Top Recruits On Display, Being All That They Can Be

Saturday, January 03, 2009

It's hard not to be of two minds regarding the Army's annual game showcasing the nation's best high school football talent: it's kind of cool to see the teenagers who will be playing for your chosen rooting interest next season (like Terrelle Pryor in last year's game, above), but there's also the whole, "wait, these guys are still in high school factor," especially when you see the players making commitments to four-year schools during the game. This isn't the only one of its kind, as Under Armour will hold its All-American Game tomorrow.

Anyway, I'm probably going to check in on this game for a bit, especially considering that it's already on NBC, where most of us will be tuned in for the professionals after it.

How many of these kids become jerks in the next four years?

Well, considering some of the star jocks I knew in high school, some of them might already be jerks -- just like every other segment of the population.

Rich Rod is piecing together quite a nice recruiting class at Michigan.
