On National Signing Day high school players get their first taste of the spotlight of big-time athletics, which can be a lot for an 18-year-old to handle. Luckily for them, J.J. Watt has some advice.
Annual reminder that it's not all about how many stars you have or how many cameras show up at your signing. It's what you do next.— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) February 4, 2015
Watt knows a thing or two about disregarding rankings, as he came into college as a two-star recruit and left a second-team All-America, and recently won his second NFL Defensive Player of the Year award.
The Texans star began his college career as a tight end at Central Michigan before transferring to Wisconsin and becoming a defensive end.
