Every college in the country wants Johnny. 'Cause when he's good he's very very good. And when he's bad he's better.

It's recruiting time and despite being short and scrawny, Johnny Walker is America's hottest young football prospect. His dilemma: should he take one of the many offers from college talent scouts or should he attend the local state college with his girlfriend and give up his football career?
