Under-recruited: How Today’s Stars Were Made
James Harrison. Hate him or love him, he had one of the toughest paths to the NFL possible. Unrecruited, undrafted, nothing was given to him along the way.
Yes, Khalil Mack was a first round draft pick. But he also only received one offer coming out of high school. But that’s just where his story gets started.
Jordan Howard making the pro bowl? That was expected for him. After being labeled as a 2 star, he wasn’t going to stop before success in the NFL.
Paul George was never respected as a high school recruit. In fact, it wasn’t until the end of high school where he started to receive a few offers.
If you’re discouraged about not getting an offer out of high school, look no further than the star of the Vikings, Adam Thielen for inspiration.
