Bill Simmons, ESPN’s Sportsguy, pointed out this fascinating series from the Miami Herald. It follows the college recruiting trips of Willie Williams, ranked sixth among high school football players nationwide.

A gifted outside linebacker with a 3.0 GPA and a 1070 SAT, Willliams is flown on private jets, feted like a king, and shown the sights. The ritual presentation of a team jersey with his name and number to wear as prospective colleges take him through mock team introductions at their respective stadiums gives you a glimpse of the psychological warefare at play in college recruiting.

Thus far, Williams has visited:

Florida State University

Auburn

University of Miami

and

University of Florida

Just read it.

Today is the National Signing Day for highschool recruits, I’ll update this when the next article is posted.
