Jonathan Walton (Daphne, Ala./Bayside Academy) kneeled down and tied a torn T-shirt around his head. He needed to prepare for his backbreaking summer morning: maybe paint a fence, pour cement or mow a lawn.

The 6-foot-1, 236-pound linebacker took on a part-time landscaping job in June so he could raise enough money for a plane ticket to Happy Valley. So, every weekday for three weeks, he woke up, tied that shirt around his perspiring head and went to work. Then he trained.

"I didn't mind it," said the unranked prospect, who reeled in a Penn State offer shortly before taking that job. "I wanted to get used to the heat for football anyway."
