Exclamation One to watch for the future
I had the honor of working at Oak Park and River Forest high school this past year (Student teaching in the Fall then TA this Spring). While I was there, I got to meet a kid in a freshman algebra class that I taught who may either A ) Go Pro someday or B ) have a **** ton load of D1 offers and have a pretty good college career. Now when I first met him, I thought he was a Junior. The kid is already built like he could be someone's father, he's strong as hell, fast as hell (runs track at OPRF) but most importantly he's a hard worker and humble beyond his years. I joked with him a lot about playing for NIU some day (cause honestly, I don't think he really knows how high his potential actually is already). He put up video game numbers his freshman, to the point that a lot of games he was taken out due to "unfair advantage." He's going to be on Varisty this upcoming 17/18 school year. Coming from a big school like OPRF, you don't see underclassmen go varsity (he's literally the only one from JV moving up early). I hope and pray we have a coach lurking this board and stumbles on this video... I've never wanted a kid to play for NIU so bad in my life. I'm putting my sanity on the line and calling him P5 talent (I know the naysayers won't believe such nonsense). Hopefully some of you guys add him onto your list.

Definitely a kid to keep an eye on. His in-game speed looks great.
