Which high school football team is most likely to win a state championship?
Help us pick the top stories of 2013 >>
The NCAA might be interested in James Franklin, before he is said and done for shady recruiting. He is camped on Jalen Hurds doorsteps from Beech High School in Hendersonville, Tn.
The 2 weeks of no contact especially a junior might apply in this case. Case in point, at the 5A State Championship, he got in the middle of the Beech cheering section trying his best to be seen by everyone there and then turned around and sucked an invitation to Beech High School to speak to the entire team that was being celebrated.. I beleive this period of time 2-3 weeks after the championship might have been in violation of no contact period. For some reason Vanderbilt spends alot of time in Hendersonville the past few years getting John Jenkins from Station Camp Creek, Wesley Tate from Pope John Paul and the starting center for Vanderbilt football, from Hendersonville High School. This is big Orange country and I have personally seen one of Vanderbilts assistant coaches here several months ago buying lunch for a couple of female athletes.
Franklin should be called sneaky pete with his sneaky way of recruiting and cuddling up to some of these athletes in the Sumner Cty. area. I don't know that Jalen Hurd is really interested in Tn., but if they are interested in him, someone had better get with the program in recruiting one of the top running backs in the nation. Jalen is a smart student as well as a player and wouldn't have to go into Vanderbilt under the Peadbody arrangement set up in 1974 to make Vanderbilt more competitive in the SEC. From all that I have heard he is a great kid that would be great for Tn. to have.
