The Under Armour High School All-American Game, featuring a slew of fantastic college recruits, is finishing up right now on ESPN, and lo and behold, Tommy Tuberville is one of the analysts.
This isn't particularly shocking -- Tuberville is a smart guy, a great football coach and a fantastic recruiter. It is interesting, though, because it shows just how appealing the WWL is for former coaches, in terms of immediate supplemental income.
Tuberville made a pretty interesting point relating to cornerbacks (versus other positions on the field) that relates to the current state of the college game: they're more valuable than any other spot on the field, because the spread offense has become so prevalent. Tuberville also mentioned that defensive lineman are the easiest players to project in terms of progression from high school to college.
Matt Barkley, a USC quarterback recruit (surprising, huh?), ended up pulling player of the game after firing 11-of-22 for 235 yards and two touchdowns, while Garrett Gilbert, the other top QB recruit (headed to Texas) also put on a show in a losing effort.
