Winner Of Australian Football League Reality Show The Recruit To Pick Own Club

The winner of Australian Football League reality TV program The Recruit "will have the chance to pick the clubs he wishes to play for in 2015," according to Daniel Cherny of the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. The league "outlined that representatives of the 18 clubs will conduct a 3-2-1 vote on the final three contestants in order to determine the winner." Clubs "will then have the chance to nominate whether or not they wish to acquire the player" in '15. He "will be able to choose his destination from all the clubs that have nominated him." The winner of The Recruit "will be classified as a 'Category B rookie,'" a label generally used for int'l recruits such as St. Kilda's American player Jason Holmes, or high-performance athletes crossing from another sport such as former steeplechaser and now Geelong player Mark Blicavs (SMH, 8/25).
