This kid should pick a community college
A high school football player in Nevada picked Cal over Oregon yesterday, on National Signing Day Eve. Unfortunately, neither school offered him a scholarship and in fact had never heard of him. It may have been some elaborate prank or someone posing as a recruiter somehow trying to turn a buck on this. Everything surrounding recruiting is so difficult to watch; it's like Little Miss Sunshine right before the climax. These guys are too young and too lacking in any type of perspective to fuel an industry. Kenny Tate announced last week he was attending "Maryland University," just as Derrick Williams announced he has chosen "The University of Penn State" a few years back.
