In honor of the College Football playoff, Myron Medcalf at ESPN compiled a list of 10 college hoops athletes who could also play football. Surprise: Kentucky’s own Willie Cauley-Stein came in at #1. Apparently he played receiver in high school; who’da thunk it.
Hey, Nick Saban. Any interest in a 7-foot wide receiver who caught 57 passes for 1,140 yards as a senior in high school? Oh, Cauley-Stein also scored 14 touchdowns (in the first nine games) of his 2011 campaign at Northwest High School in Olathe, Kansas. Would you like a guy like that at Bama, Coach?
While it would be nice to see the SEC do a bit better in bowl games this season, personally, I prefer Willie on the basketball court.
