Lew Alcindor's choice was down to U-M and UCLA. I would be interesting to see whether U-M would be supplanted UCLA in the late-1960's and early-1970's if Alcindor had made a different decision.

The key to Denard's success in the NFL is to be drafted by a team that has the patience to develop and maximize his talents rather than one that expects him to contribute right away.
An ideal situation would be to get drafted by New England and be developed to be the successor to Wes Welker. He could be catching passes from Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett for the next 10-15 years. A nighmare scenario would be to get drafted by a team that expects him to contribute right away.
In a way, his dropped balls at the Senior Bowl practices could a a blessing in disguise, because it lowers expectations while allowing him to showcase his athleticism. He might not get the big paycheck right away, but he could make up for it in a longer career with big paychecks down the road.

As a corollary to applying early, your references may be inundated with requests for recommendation letters once school starts in the fall. Contact them now and ask them for recommendation letters while they have time over the summer to write them.
If your HS counselor has to fill out school information on your application, put in your request for that ASAP as well. If you wait until school starts in the fall, your counselor will be dealing with beginning of the school year issues which could delay the submission of your application.
It can be very annoying to spend your summer completing your part of the application, only to be at the mercy of others before it can be submitted.
