Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, and Adrien Peterson were NFL ready in HS...


People really do feel that way. If you look at the footage and how developed they were, its hard to disagree with that. All of them were big enough and strong enough as high schoolers. In fact Adrien Peterson sparked a debate about mature high schoolers going straight to the NFL. It was short lived, because a player like those three is very, very rare. I think Rivals needs a different category for guys like them. They are beyond five star, and a guy like them isn't available every year.
