You may find this hard to believe, but The Rock has been a certified meathead since his youth. While growing up around wrestlers, lifting weights was part of his daily routine just as brushing your teeth is for you or me. Thus, Rock wouldn’t let anything stop him from a workout, including a visit from a college recruiter.
Rock, who had offers to play football from Penn State, Clemson and Florida State, among others, was working out in the basement of his parent’s home when a recruiter visited to try to lure him to his school The Rock’s parents let their son know that the recruiter was there, and The Rock told them he can wait until he finished his workout.
No word on if the recruiter was ticked off or impressed with The Rock’s commitment to his workout, but he ended up signing with the University of Miami, which had just won a national championship the previous season in 1989.
