A handful of states have already pushed high school football season to 2021, forcing top recruits to make difficult decisions. Stay and play senior year? Graduate in December and enroll early in college? Transfer to a state playing in the fall? Reclassify?
Washington and school districts in the DMV area have followed suit and have seen more top recruits join some of the best players in California foregoing their senior season.
