Recruiting Insider: January 13, 2008 - January 19, 2008

Cavs Hit Bumps in the Road

Rough stretch for the Virginia football team. Top recruiter Mike London appears bound to Richmond. Meantime, starting quarterback Jameel Sewell is not enrolled in spring semester classes, making him unlikely to be on the team and playing in the fall....

Report Questions Rodriguez's Calls to Recruits

Oh boy, it's getting interesting now. Not only are West Virginia officials accusing Rich Rodriguez of shredding more than defenses, now comes this report that Rodriguez might have been contacting recruits during a dead period. (Edit: My quick interpretation is that no NCAA rules were broken.) And used his WVU-issued...

Petrino On the Recruiting Trail?

ESPN Gene Wojciechowski, who knows the college landscape as well as anyone, has a terrific column on new Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino and how fun it would be to see him on the recruiting trail now. Consider this passage, of a conversation between Petrino and a father during an imaginary...

Pryor to Michigan This Weekend

So Terrelle Pryor moved up his scheduled visit to Michigan and will be in Ann Arbor this weekend. This weekend's planned trip to Penn State is off? He might go somewhere else next weekend, perhaps Florida, LSU or Oregon. LSU is new the mix, as Pryor said, "I wouldn't say...

Harley expects that Arnett will...

The Way to a Recruit's Heart?

Anyone else think this story missed the point? Seems that three Tennessee freshmen football players were chaperoning a recruit on his official visit this past weekend when their car was stopped after police noticed a burned-out light over the license plate. When officers approached the car, there was smoke coming...

No. 1 QB More Likely to Fizzle Than Sizzle

With Terrelle Pryor seemingly headed to Michigan, the Detroit Free-Press looks at the top-rated quarterbacks the past five seasons and comes to the conclusion that recruiting rankings are for the birds. Of the group, only Georgia's Matthew Stafford has made an impact. The others: Rhett Bomar (paid $7,000 extra at...

Mallett to Arkansas? Must First Learn Team's Call

While Ryan Mallett's father is denying his son has enrolled at Arkansas, it sure seems that the once-prized high school quarterback is going to be a Razorback. This report says that Mallett, who is leaving Michigan because he doesn't think he'll fit into Rich Rodriguez's spread offense, has already checked...

U-Va. to Allow Midyear Enrollment

Here's an interesting story from Man About Charlottesville Jeff White, who has the story that Virginia will alter its admissions policy and start allowing midyear enrollment in certain situations.

NCAA Maintains Ban on Texting

I was a little surprised by the NCAA's decision this past weekend to retain the ban on text messaging in recruiting. Not by the decision itself, as texting had gotten way out of hand. But by the whooping 240 to 65 margin that schools voted to maintain the ban at...
