NFL Network will show high school players’ college announcements

NFL Network is officially a cog in the college football recruiting machine.

The network has confirmed what high school star Ja’Marr Chase said today: On Monday, NFL Network will televise two high school players announcing which college they will attend.

Chase, a receiver from Louisiana, will announce his intentions after considering LSU, TCU and Tennessee. Jordyn Adams, a receiver from North Carolina, will announce his choice, which he has narrowed down to Clemson and North Carolina.

The announcements will be part of The Opening, a high school football event held at Nike’s headquarters in Oregon. NFL Network will be on the scene of the event, a strong sign that NFL Media wants to expand beyond pro football and into the increasingly professionalized world of amateur football.

    I’m happy these kids are deciding on schools that don’t play their games on my TV.

    Clowns the whole lot of them.

    Will the NFL network be covering these kids in 4-5 years when they are washed out of football without a degree and no real skills because they’ve been surrounded by synchophants that think they are going pro?

    Just wondering because that’s what happens to a large % of DI college football players.

    The only thing missing is a two hour special on the social media reactions to their choices.

    Yeah, lets make sure these kids get all the undeserved attention they can possibly get. It wont have any kind of negative consequences down the road…

    Our society is quickly becoming one huge fail.
