Football recruit scouting reports are kind of creepy

Wednesday is college football National Signing Day. It's like Christmas Day for recruiting experts.
You know, recruiting experts: grizzled, older men who spend their days staring at muscled teenagers and describing their bodies.
Yes, it's plenty creepy.
And here are some actual scouting reports on a few of this year's top recruits. Really. Grown men wrote the following things about teenagers. It's amazing more of these guys aren't locked away.
Seantrel Henderson, OL (ranked No. 2 prospect overall by Rivals) —"Upper and lower body structure is in proportion and he has the powerful base to blow anyone off…""His butt is down and his back is about as flat as you could expect from a 6-foot-8 man."
Sharrif Floyd, DT (No. 4 by Rivals) — "He gets so low and comes … so hard …"
