When Shaker Heights (Ohio) high school built its new turf field last summer, 2014 defensive end Joe Henderson (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Shaker Heights) was ecstatic. But the lights weren't installed at the same time, which meant during his junior season, the team wouldn't be playing on Friday nights. Instead, in a less iconic and thrilling manner, they'd play on Saturday afternoons at home.

But the much less thrilling part was that Henderson knew he'd probably be unable to take any unofficial visits during the 2012 NCAA football season to the colleges that are recruiting him.
