    Yes,they mention race,but I still think they're fudging because they don't go deep enough on why white running backs don't get recruited,instead they focus on how the one fellow isn't considerd fast enough,and that's what big colleges want is blazing speed,or how the other back was injured and couldn't participate in the camps.Yada,yada,yada,yada,yada,yada,yada.This story just grazes on what we all know to be true and that is,if you're white it ain't right.

    It is a total disgrace that these 4 running backs did not get even one scholarship offer!

    This happens every year all over the country. The only thing unusual is that a newspaper actually publicized it and mentioned race, albeit in a gingerly way.

    Yeah, it happens a whole lot right here in Mississippi, especially in the private schools, as most of the Delta public schools are mostly black.
