Default You're a FIVE STAR high school senior .... which college do you choose?

FIGHT THE BOREDOM!


I did this same thread during last year's doldrums and it went over pretty well.

PLEASE don't pick you favorite college or your alma mater ... if you do it just degenerates into a popularity contest.

a program that gets you noticed in NFL circles. ohio/florida/texas etc

the only reason these schools create so many NFL players is because the best high school students pick them, and they pick them because they create NFL players. catch22..

Baseball - Cal St Fullerton or Texas

Answering this according to academics, not athletics.

Depends what they want...so it's an unanswerable question. My daughter just finished her freshman year at Texas A&M...she chose it over Princeton, Stanford and Yale among others after finishing with a 4.79 GPA (11th in the district, 2nd in her class)...but she wanted to stay close to home. On the one hand I'm thrilled...on the other I'm like WTF? You want to be an Aggie? It's a good school but hey...WTF?

Let them make up their own minds without to much pressure.

i'd go with USC. simply because that school churns out on average at least 10 draft picks a year, 3 to 4 of which are 1st rounders.

I would take Michigan.

For pure athletics I would take an SEC school, they get more exposure and there is a bias for SEC players right now, so it maximizes your chances of making the most of your talent and getting into the pros.

The only real rule of thumb is that I stay the hell away from Texas.

You choose Penn State because you have strong character.

If money's your reason, you choose USC.
