Russell Wilson finished his college career at Wisconsin, but he did play at NC State also. I put Wisconsin, but people might complain about it.

Russell Wilson played three years at NC State and only one year at Wisconsin, so NC State is really the better answer.

The struggle is real for Jerry Rice lol. Funny how football always seems to grace players out of nowhere. How in the world a college with a better reputation has not scouted the guy who could be considered the best ever? It must be a personal choice right?... RIGHT?

Some guys bloom late, don't have sufficient exposure or start using steroids late in their college careers. For any number of reasons, Jerry Rice is in some good company.

Walter Payton (Jackson St.), "Mean" Joe Greene (North Texas), Andre Reed (Kutztown St.), Jack Lambert (Kent St.), Merlin Olsen (Utah St.), Bob Hayes (Florida A&M), Terry Bradshaw (Louisiana Tech), Michael Strahan (Texas Southern), Howie Long (Villanova), et al, all made the NFL Hall of Fame after being passed over by all of the major college programs.

if you went to a HBCU like I did you would know where Jerry Rice went to school. Rice's teammate at the other receiver on the 49ers, John Taylor went to my school, Delaware State University.

No love for Mississippi Valley St. and its 5-wide point-a-minute offense! (In other news, how is it that Jerry Rice was never put on a streetcar for a Rice-a-Roni - "the San Francisco treat" - ad? Madison Ave. fell down on that one.)

Randy Moss originally signed with Notre Dame He got in a fight at the end of his senior year of high school and was convicted of assault. Notre Dame revoked his scholarship and he went to FSU where he was redshirted. As part of his probation he tested positive for marijuana and had to go back to jail for 60 days. FSU revoked his scholarship. That's how one of the greatest athletes of all time who was very well known ended up at then 1AA Marshall.
