1. We're No. 1! (In football nerds!)
The APR is basically just Fitbit for athletic departments, right?— sir broosk (@celebrityhottub) June 11, 2013
APR scores you on 1. not dropping out & 2. staying eligible. This is like grading a restaurant for 1. not killing people & 2. having plates.— sir broosk (@celebrityhottub) June 11, 2013
Granted, the APR is a silly number, but hey, it's more fun to ace it than to not ace it, amirite?
2. Recruiting never stops
"It was a nice visit. I liked everything," the 5-foot-10, 170 pound prospect stated. "The staff showed me the academic side of the campus and where all the different classes are held. Then I got to see the columns. I also got to go down to the field and tour the entire training facility. Last thing I saw was downtown, where all the main restaurants are. It was a great trip."
For Stribling, who made the trip with his family and was in Columbia from Saturday to Sunday, there was one stop on the visit that stood about above the rest.
"Getting to see the training facility and all the equipment that's inside it. From the outside it doesn't seem like it's that big, but when you get inside it is humongous. There is so much for the athletes inside," he explained. "Then there is the construction on the stadium and they're also going to build a new indoor facility, even though they already have one."
