OT: Best College Football Recruiting Stories

Submitted by GoBlue on February 24th, 2012 at 3:45 PM

This little gem was buried at the end of Ace's Friday Recruitin' post.  Without a mention of it in the first 20 or so comments, it seemed sure to fade off into obscurity there.  I thought it was worthy of it's own mention (and a chuckle or two on your part.)

Anyone know who the 5-star DE is in the "Super Secret Double Double Cross" story?

Any other good stories the article left out?

There's the story one of the QBs told (Denard, Gardner, Bellomy... Bacon didn't say which) about how on a recruting trip to an SEC school he went to his hotel room and there were 2 co-eds in his bed.

Tame compared to the stories on there, but still. I wish I was better at sports in high school.

I always liked the Gunner Kiel story. He started out as a hometown hero who people praised for choosing to try to save Indiana football. Then he became a villian selling out for one of the top programs in the country. Then bailing on LSU the last minute and showing up at ND where he will most likely fail.

story is my favorite.  What makes it so great is the fact that there's a video of it, and how he relishes the moment.  This is a bold statement, but that's one of my top 10 favorite youtube videos in general.

Although I no longer reside in kzoo, it'll always hold a special place in my alcoholic heart.
