I Hope This Random Student That Made A Video To Announce His College Commitment Knows What He's Doing
Never ever has a short, scrawny white boy with limited - if any - athletic ability had as big of a target on his back before even stepping foot in a lecture hall. I know this video was somewhat of a parody of the ridiculousness that currently is college athletics, but with a viral statement like this he better be ready to carry the academic torch from day one. He thought the eyes of his peers were burning a hole in his back when he handed his flawless test paper in a half hour before the rest of his class? HA! Just wait until he's in college where people think their actual future is at risk every time they write their student identification number on a scantron. MC-square up son, because it's not going to be so easy to retain your spot as the big brain on campus when you're actually on a real campus.
You want the glitz and glamor of being a top flight football recruit then you get treated like a top flight football recruit in your field as well. That means no adjustment period. No benefit of the doubt. Hope he did his shoulder shrugs because he's going to need a far bigger backpack. This kid better have cured some form of cancer by the end of his freshman year or his signing is going to be an indictment of the entire admissions office. I personally think this kid has bust written all over him. If I had to assign a value to it I would say he has 3-Star smarts at best. Far too concerned with his wardrobe and general disposition to live up to intellectual expectations of a Top 100 prospect. Not saying he won't be productive, but when we look back at the college "career" of Alex Gold I have reason to believe we will be talking about what could have been. With such an overly self confident commitment video I assume that "what could have been" is nothing short of the systematic elimination of any and all terrorist threats by graduation.
