    It's very expensive to go there. Those guys are on scholarships. NFL players come to that school to workout in the off-season. It is a college.

    Someone that I work with paid $70k/yr for 2 years to send his son there. No scholly - he said it was worth it as his son is on full scholarship at college now.

    Don't tell the person that a lot of folks get full scholarships after attending a free public high school.

    I know, I know, every situation is different .

    He had to pay? Dang. IMG contacted a friend to gauge her sonís interest and indicated there are ways to help families pay the tuition.

    Yeah, his son was totally off the radar, so he got some aid, but not much. I may be wrong about the second year - he may have received more aid his senior year. His son's goal is to become a coach, which was the primary reason to send him there (relationships). But daddy is loaded, which made it possible.

    ETA - his son is a baseball player, not football.

    I played golf with a couple of coaches there... Really good guys...they indicated that they have 2 groups of players -- those who are stars and those whose Dads have money and think they are stars. Guess which group gives them more headaches????

    Like RTR said it's the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium or the Hoover Met, where we still have the SEC Baseball Championship at. But what sucks is that Hoover DOES have a nice on campus stadium but they rarely seem to ever use it.

    That's because IMG is nothing but a football factory. They are not a normal school by any means.

    Then they're the ones footing the bill for the good ones because I promise you they are waiving tuition for the good players. After all, Bo Scarbrough played there too and I promise you he wasn't paying tuition...

    I believe it was mentioned we are also in on Neal, the big OT and one other OLB in addition to Sanders.

    No. They just stated he was uncommitted at present but Bama, Florida, and Miami were among his top choices.
