Rather than say more, I'll just quote Bill Simmons, The Sports Guy:
Finally, I'd like to introduce you to the greatest newspaper series of all time. And yes, I know what I just wrote. This is the greatest newspaper series of all time. Except, of course, the idea was swiped from ESPN.com's own (and better) "Blue Chip Diaries" from last year.Here are the articles. As instructed, read them in order. I'll add all future articles in this series right here.
Anyway, the Miami Herald has been following around All-State high school linebacker Willie Williams -- he's checking out various colleges and reporting back on his recruiting trips. I couldn't possibly describe what's happening here. I'm just going to give you the link, and you need to read all three of these features. And please read them in sequence. I don't ask for much.
- Trip No. 1: Florida State.
- Trip No. 2: Auburn.
- Trip No. 3: Miami.
- Trip No. 4: U Florida. (added 2/2/04)
- Williams joins the University of Miami. (added 2/5/04)
