As many as 30 high-school football games are scheduled to run on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU this fall. It still plans to televise events like the Under Armour High School All-America Game (football) and the McDonald’s All-American Game (basketball). ESPNRecruitingNation.com will now handle high school recruiting, while espnW will pick up girls’ basketball content. Among the execs losing their positions are ESPN VP/HS Events Andrew Bark and VP/HS Business Strategy & Operations Glenn Rosenbloom.
