20 kids from one program signed a Division I LOI, but it wasn't a HS program


Every year you see the really good programs sit three or four guys at a table for national signing day to announce their Division I destination and, while it's rare, it seems like a program or two a year sends five, six, or seven guys D-I.

Well one program that outdid the powerhouses like Bishop Gorman HS (NV), or Allen HS (TX), or De La Salle (CA) this past signing day was Snoop Dogg's Youth Football League, which saw 20 of their alums sign Division I letters of intent according to TMZ.

A handful of players that have gotten their start in the Snoop Youth Football League, including Ronnie Hillman and De'Anthony Thomas, have gotten drafted over the last couple years.

While comparing the youth program, which has blossomed to 1,700 players since starting in 2005, to high schools isn't exactly apples-to-apples, producing 20 Division I signees (and a number of NFL draft picks) from any singular pool is impressive.
