Perhaps there's more to blue-chip recruit Jabrill Peppers than meets the eye. A five-star prospect out of Paramus (N.J.) Catholic, Peppers recently dropped a video for his rap song "Don't Take It Personal" on YouTube.

The track, credited to J. Reall (Peppers) featuring Knew Era X, begins with the line, "It ain't no secret through the struggle only the strong survive." Peppers is likely referring to his recruitment here, as he continues to fend off an endless sea of scholarship offers from major-conference programs. He's reportedly narrowed his final list of schools down to LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers and Stanford. He's slated to make his announcement on ESPNU on May 26.
