Darn you, recruiting services. Every year, I try to give hope to the downtrodden by choosing an all-star team stocked completely with players who were either underrated or ignored by the starmakers among the recruiting cognoscenti. The problem? It keeps getting harder.
The tendrils of recruiting coverage have dug so deep into the gridiron's grassroots that it's nearly impossible for a previously under-the-radar player to sign a letter of intent without at least three stars next to his name. Based on a lot of the stories I read last season, I figured the 2010 All Two-Star (And Fewer) Team would get much of its offensive production from Boise State quarterback
But after considerable scouring, I've assembled a team* of two-stars that would steamroll a squad of five-stars with sheer force of will. So keep your 4.3-second 40-yard dash times and your 6-foot-4 quarterbacks. I'll take my too-short, too-light, too-slow collection of walk-ons and two-stars.
