Top football recruit announces his finalist schools via Elf Yourself
All the schools he didn’t pick—you just got served.
College football recruiting can be a long and arduous process, so high school recruits try to have fun with it whenever they can. Players often name their leaders and final school selections through elaborate announcements filled with freestyle raps, props, and fakeouts. But even though he isn’t yet ready to commit to a college, top defensive recruit D’Andre Walker’s Elf Yourself announcement may already go down as the most creative announcement yet.
Walker is a top defensive recruit from the state of Georgia and as the 11th-ranked DE prospect in the country, fields an impressive list of scholarship offers from schools all over the nation. Most recruiting sites already predicted he’d wind up at one of the SEC’s powerhouses, but Walker decided to cut his list down to three leaders: Georgia, Tennessee, and Auburn. He did it using Office Depot’s Elf Yourself website. In the video, a breakdancing elf version of Walker busts a move with three backup elves—each bearing the football helmet of the aforementioned teams.
Walker is expected to announce his final decision at either the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 3, or by National Signing Day on Feb. 4.
Let’s hope he’s been practicing his dance moves as much as he has his pass rush moves and maybe we’ll get a live performance.
