Channing Tatum played multiple sports growing up, including football, soccer, baseball, track and martial arts. But football piqued his interest the most, and it led to a scholarship offer from Wake Forest.
However, it was later revealed that Tatum didn’t have the appropriate test scores, so instead of heading to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, he went to Glenville State College in West Virginia.
Tatum lasted just one year there before giving up both football and school. But as one door closed, another one opened, and shortly thereafter, Tatum was hired at a modeling agency.
