Many of the top players in the classes of 2009 and 2010 gathered at Proviso West in Hillside on Sunday. The seniors are slightly better than I originally thought but still average at best. But the juniors are shaping up as a special class, maybe the best since 1986 which produced 141 full-ride scholarships and sent 17 to the NFL.
The bigget news of all, however, was that Morgan Park defensive end Craig Drummond, the No. 1 player in the class of 2009, reported that he had passed his ACT exam with a score of 22. If he achieves a 2.0 grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale), the 6-5, 265-pounder will qualify for any of the leading Division I programs in the country.
