Arundel Receiver Says Go Orange

In the midst of a staff meeting, colleague B.J. Koubaroulis sends this text message: Arundel wide receiver Alec Lemon has committed to play for Syracuse.

Lemon was one of the top receivers last season in the Wildcats' pass-happy offense with nearly 1,000 yards receiving and 13 touchdown catches as Arundel advanced to the Maryland 4A final. He spent the summer on the camp/combine circuit seeking to raise his stock.

While it's great for Lemon that he earned a scholarship from a Big East program, I'm sure folks will wonder what lies ahead given Syracuse Coach Greg Robinson's tenuous job security.

You have to make your college picks based on more criteria than the coaching staff alone. Even a school with a winning coach (e.g., West Virginia) is just as vulnerable as a losing coach to transition and flux - especially in today's environment -- any kid that picks a school based on the head coach alone is in for a tough time for four years. Really kinda of surprised by the tone of this blog.

Good news that he did not choose Penn State.

I am glad Tavon Austin is no longer being recruited by Penn State.
