If your school and football program has a terrific record of sending players to the NFL, why wouldn’t you want prospect players to know that? I mean, after all, most high school athletes of that caliber are using college as a catapult into the big leagues.
Florida State’s football programs knows this. College Spun shared a picture of Florida State football’s scholarship offer letter that emphasizes not only its NFL Draft record, but also the school’s rich history in academics. They really know how to appease both players and their parents.
Parents will be happy to know that Florida State really emphasizes the “student” part in “student-athlete.” After all, you are going to college to be a student first. Football just happens to be your way of getting there.
If you remember, former Florida State cornerback Myron Rolle was a Rhodes Scholar in 2008. He attended Oxford University in 2009 before being drafted in 2010 by the Tennessee Titans. He is now attending medical school at Florida State.
