Recruiting Insider: February 10, 2008 - February 16, 2008

Good Time For a Roadtrip

So, two big games a few miles apart tonight in Prince George's: Gonzaga at DeMatha and Laurel at Eleanor Roosevelt. DeMatha is the only team to beat the top-ranked Eagles, while Roosevelt should/could threaten second-ranked Laurel's undefeated run through the Prince George's 4A. I, of course, am getting ready to...

It Gets Weirder Yet In Nevada

So Kevin Hart isn't going to Cal. If he's lucky, maybe Jerry Glanville and Portland State will take him. Now comes this story: Fernley High football coach Mark Hodges has sued the Lyon County School District for $20,000 for defamation in the wake of the most bizarre recruiting story I...

Will Those Extra Calls Can Sampson?

So Kelvin Sampson got a few boos and a few cheers and Indiana lost on bank-shot three-pointer. What happens next to the serial caller? Pat Forde says Indiana has four options, none of which seem too appealing. The Indinanapolis Star wonders what's ahead and lists the players Sampson called improperly:...

New Suitor For Local Center

Just got off the phone with Largo Coach Lewis Howard. He reports that 6-11 center Maurice Sutton still has scholarship offers on the table from South Florida, Seton Hall and Marquette, with Boston College, Clemson, Kentucky and North Carolina State still showing interest. South Florida Coach Stan Heath came to...

Bombshell: Indiana Coach Alleged Lied About Recruiting Violations

Here's today's bombshell: The NCAA considers previously disclosed recruiting violations by Indiana Coach Kelvin Sampson and two assistants to be major violations, meaning they could bring severe penalties. The NCAA alleges that Sampson provided "false or misleading information" to investigators and Indiana Athletic Director Rick Greenspan said the university views...

Recruiting Way Out of Whack

Somehow, this columnist succeeds in connecting Terrelle Pryor and Kevin Hart into an argument that the importance of recruiting is way out of whack. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem likely that we can turn back the clock and put recruiting back into perspective....

Taylor In Trouble at Penn State Too?

Remember how Penn State got the best of Maryland three years ago when it seemed all the top local prospects headed to State College? And remember that it says here way too much is made of recruiting and that it takes three to four years before a recruiting class can...

Hotshot Running Back Under Microscope

The recruitment of hotshot running back Darrell Scott took one final twist last week when he signed with Colorado. Then one of his assistant coaches said Scott picked the Buffaloes because they made an offer that could not be refused, prompting Colorado assistant Darian Hagan to strongly deny any wrongdoing....

Nevada Hoaxster Finds a Taker?

Kevin Hart won't be playing at Cal, but it is possible he could find a taker further up the Pacific Coast. I'd chalk this one up to Jerry Glanville pulling a publicity stunt - no way, you - but who knows how far he would go. After all, this definitely...
