Second Underclassman To Sign With USFL

After the 1983 Herschel Walker signing by the New Jersey Generals, which created a sports media firestorm due to the concern of underclassmen leaving college early for pro football, the USFL decided to implement a ban against future underclassmen signings.   This week’s trivia question is:  Which USFL player ended up beating the ban to become the second underclassman to sign with the USFL?

Answer:
Bob Boris, a punter who signed with the 1984 Oklahoma Outlaws.  He dropped two punt snaps in his debut and was released from the team days later.
