Breaking down the finalists
Louis broke down what stands out about each of his top schools:
Ohio State- I love the coaching staff. Everyone in the town has a winning mentality, and the fans are loyal and you can’t go wrong.
Miami- It’s home! They are bringing the old Miami back and it’s coming sooner than later.
Georgia- It’s the best team in college football hands down. They have proven and shown why they are the big dogs.
Alabama- Coach Saban is the man. Playing for him is like playing in the NFL, the best preparation for the League.
Tennessee- They are going to win no doubt about it.
USC- The best team in the west coast and RBU.
Florida State- Coach Norvell told me when I was in the 9th grade that was going to be the best team in college football by the time I graduate. He is a man of his word.
Oklahoma- Coach Murray played the position at the highest level. Why not play for the best?
Penn State- Coach Juan wants a dog and I’m the man for the job. When those two headed monsters leave I’m next up.
Wisconsin- The best of the best go there! If you wanna play in the league for a long time and do numbers that’s the best place for you at my position.
