Why don't major college football programs (USC in the pacific islands excepted) recruit internationally? And I know what you're thinking: because it would be more expensive and nobody plays American football internationally.
My counter to these arguments is that it would require minimal effort to attract some kids from the Caribbean or South America, for example, where there is a surplus of athletes and a shortage of opportunities.
Regarding the fact that they would have no football experience, a Jamaican sprinter with not-quite Usain Bolt's speed could easily become an asset at corner or receiver with a year or two of coaching. Or a Brazilian footballer that can't quite go pro but wants to get out of the favelas.
Taking one or two fliers per year on this sort of prospect would have minimal risk and huge upside, particularly if a few guys made it big and brought the game back home.
Thoughts? Neg bangs?
