Off Topic College Football Recruiting

By a number of major college football recruiting services (Rivals, Scout, ESPN) USC has ended up with the number 1 recruiting class.

The first day high school football players could commit and sign Letters of Intent was February 1st. It is not often that high profile, talented recruits let the day pass without making it known where they’ll attend class and play the following fall.

This year however signing day has come and gone, but still a little bit of drama surrounds one of USC’s prize recruits. The either #1 or #2 high school WR in the country (depending on who you ask), Vidal Hazelton, committed to USC but his parents refused to sign his Letter of Intent with him. A parent signature is required on a Letter of Intent until the enrolling athlete is 21 years of age of older. Vidal’s parents are set on him staying close to home and attending Penn St.

All this despite the fact Vidal is an 18 year old man.
