The world of big time college football and basketball recruiting is a cutthroat business, and coaches will tell and promise recruits anything to get them to sign on the dotted line.

You don’t believe me, check out this story from Thacover2. ¬† Da’Shawn Hand is the consensus #1 rated football player in the class of 2014, and a stud defensive end prospect many are comparing to Jadaveon Clowney.

Over the weekend,the defensive lineman took an unofficial visit to Ohio State, and during a Nike football training camp, chatted with Bruce Feldman about the craziest things a college coach as ever said to him.

Well, I ain’t gonna say any names, but one coach told me that since I’m the No. 1 player, I’m gonna get to meet Michael Jackson. I said, “Isn’t he already dead?” The coach goes, “Well, all right, you can meet Tito.” I was like, all right. OK, I’m done.

It was crazy, but it is what it is.

Thankfully for the young 17-year-old Hand, he had the general knowledge to know that the king of pop was indeed deceased.

I really need to know who the coach was that promised Hand a visit with Michael and Tito Jackson.

  1. nba is fixed says:

    Every college football recruit and basketball recruit must remember these two things. First, college sports is a billion dollar a year business and the student athletes (Or is it athlete students) don’t get any of that billion dollars. Two, once your eligibility is up, if your’re not a star professional player, these schools will forget about youfaster than you can say Leroy Hoard. Coaches, alumni, presidents and boosters look at college athletes as un-paid expendable race horses!
