There is one of these up here in the southwest burbs, too... or at least there used to be. I don't know that they stayed around too long. They are calling themselves a "Prep" school similar in concept to a boarding school out east, for kids who are non-qualifiers to continue to play and improve before heading to the collegiate level.

I don't know anything about this but would not be surprised, given the current climate regarding high school football, to see more of these "academies" going forward.

I checked out their website. Sounds like it is marketed to high school graduates who have academic issues that are preventing them for playing at an NCAA or NAIA school.

Looks pretty fly-by-night. No scholarships or academic aid. The players' "dorm" is a Holiday Inn and the practice facility appears to be some kind of community fitness center. Looks like classes are delivered in a strip mall.

Not cheap. 3-month resident program is almost $14,000.

Last year or the year before they were offering commission to coaches who convinced kids to go there.

That is where this place started. They actually have a lot of qualifiers who are hoping to get film that will gain them a scholarship opportunity. It is on the former air force base at Chanute and uses some of the same facilities the Illini used to use for their early camp practices. I believe they mostly play against Division III JV teams.

It's legal because:

1. It's viewed as a private facility. They are catering to kids that don't meet clearinghouse standards. These kids are 18-20 year olds, usually grads that just don't have the academics.

2. It's an alternative to JUCO, and since I believe there's only one JUCO left playing football in Illinois, the concept looks attractive to some.

3. There's also a push in the semi-pro leagues to move towards a "developmental" concept where they are taking some of these kids on, too. But in the case of semi-pro, the kids aren't being charged $14,000.

Like Ging said... there's a sucker born every minute.
