Online site helps open doors for high school athletes



There's no substitute for seeing a player in person, but technology can help open tightly shut doors for some high school athletes. Take, for instance, Robinson High outside linebacker Justin Madison, who had only one scholarship offer. That changed when he posted his athlete profile on Hudl, an online recruitment source, and caught the attention of more scouts, including from Miami, Wake Forest and Iowa State.
