Just like I’ve said before, it is a great time to be a college football student-athlete because you have a bevy of options to continue playing the sport you love. Between the XFL starting in February and the USFL kicking off its second season in mid-April, coupled with what we’ve seen the last two seasons in the European Football League, there is a lot to look forward to post-college if you want to continue to see opportunities.

Which is why in this week’s edition of The Hunt Report, I wanted to take a look at a few players who are able to make the transition right away, and others who may benefit from alternate leagues as an initial starting point before working themselves up into both NFL and CFL opportunities down the line.
