Overlooked by every school in the nation, regardless of classification... That doesnt happen that much. If they were good enough they would of gotten an offer from SOMEWHERE. Guys that are good enough get overlooked by major schools and programs and go to a smaller school... yea that happens a good bit. But, not getting offers from any school in the nation should tell you something. And its not like its the 1970s and no computers or recruiting services. Its easier now to get looks and "discovered". And these guys still didnt get a single offer. And the 1 that did was Owen and he had offers from Nicholls and Southeastern. Went to SELU. 11 career carries.
I never said they werent good... I said they werent good enough. They were good high school football players. PERIOD. Not getting an offer from any school in the country should tell you something. But, they were overlooked and could of started and been stars for LSU, when they didnt have a single offer from anywhere. ANYWHERE. And you said that RB from Destrehan was basically LF, but faster... LF is arguably the best player in the history of LA sports and has been called a once in a lifetime prospect, but a kid that didnt get a single offer in the nation is not only just as good but better... Please think what you say before you submit it.
And they dont just base a players ratings off of highlights. They watch entire game film and talk to coaches/scouts/analysts and then come up with a rating. They dont just get a highlight reel and then rate a guy off of strictly a highlight film. I mean its a highlight film. You can take pretty much any decent high school football and make an OK highlight film.
I think the kid from Shaw played baseball at a small school.
