Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey skipped their bowl games last season to prepare for the 2017 NFL Draft, creating one of the hottest topics of the offseason. Nick Saban is concerned that the trend will soon trickle down to the high school level. The Alabama football coach fears that high school seniors may start skipping their senior seasons to focus on college football. "Same thing will happen in high school if they make the signing day before the season," Saban told CBS Sports. "It will take a few years, then some kid will say, 'Hey, I'm going to Notre Dame. I'm not playing my senior year. Then the high school coach will go nuts."
