How do you become scouted to play college football?

To get into top-flight college football programs, the ones that are pretty much NFL minicamps you have to EXCEL and I mean State records, outstanding numbers, 8000 yards rushing, hundred+ TDs, tremendous physique at the position, the works.
Then you get hold of all your high school tapes and make up a highlight reel and send to the coaches of the colleges you are interested in. Then you prepare to play for a Division 2 school or a junior college. Division 2 isn't football death; plenty of guys get drafted from UNH or Maine, and look where Jerry Rice came from.
