As we continue the conversation on college recruiting and how it has changed over the years, we will speak with Leroy Irvin, a 4 time All-Pro NFL player who still holds the record for most punt return yards in a single game. Leroy Irvin will share his experience of getting recruited in the 70’s, his experience at Kansas University, playing in the NFL and once out of the league, how he made the transition to a normal life while still keeping football in the mix.
