It was the best and worst of nationally televised commitment announcements this past week, as illustrated by defensive back Kevon Seymour (Pasadena, Ca./John Muir) and safety Landon Collins (Geismar, La./Dutchtown).
In the case of Seymour's announcement at Saturday's U.S. Army All-America Game in San Antonio, he simply lined up four hats and quickly put on the USC Trojans hat. No doubt, fans of the cardinal and gold got off their couch and started chanting, "We Are SC."
Seymour was humble and smiling, as was his family that surrounded him. For such a big announcement, it was done swiftly with a relatively no -rills presentation. Short, sweet, and no signs of family disunity.
The difference in the reactions of the families of Kevon Seymour and Landon Collins highlight the extremes of the recruiting process.
