Nation's top eighth graders, Godby fined & what Milwaukee thinks of John Henson



One reason for the recent (triumphant!) launch of this blog is to share links from across the Internets that you might find interesting. I’ll try to make this a regular Friday feature.

This week’s link dump:

* MaxPreps has released its list of the top 50 prospects for the class of 2016. Yes, 2016. As in kids who were eighth graders last season. “Welcome to the new era in college football recruiting,” Stephen Spiewak writes, “where colleges juggle securing and maintaining commitments from senior recruits with getting a jump start on middle school players who have yet to play a snap of high school football.”

Tampa Bay was shut out of the list, which you can see here.

* The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Michael Hunt seems to like the Bucks drafting Sickles’ John Henson: “The 21-year-old Henson just might be an inside presence for a team with not much inside presence to speak of for years to come.”

* This is a little old, but if you missed it (as I did), the FHSAA fined Tallahassee Godby $4,200 for using ineligible players. The penalties could include 14 forfeits and three years of probation, the Tallahasee Democrat reports.
