Catching Up; UNC, K-State Land Recruits
Back from the last vacation of the season and plenty of news to catch up on:
Colleague Alan Goldenbach reports that the final word on the class of 2009 belongs to H.D. Woodson wide receiver Jerrard Hunter, who had his bags packed for a season at Hargrave Miltary Academy before finding his way to West Virginia last week.
Woodson assistant Larry Williams called to say that Hunter earned a qualifying score on West Virginia's placement exam. Williams said that Hunter had been in touch with the school for much of the year, but his initial eligibility proved to be the last hurdle.
A day after receiving the okay from Mountaineers, the 6-foot-3 Hunter left for Morgantown.
Second-team All-Met quarterback Billy Cosh committed to play for Kansas State, where he will join his father, Chris. Chris Cosh had been Maryland's defensive coordinator before taking a similar position at Kansas State after last season. Billy Cosh opted to stay at Arundel for his senior year. Cosh also considered Kentucky and East Carolina.
O'Connell massive lineman Nick Appel committed to play for North Carolina. At 6-6 and 300 pounds, Appel also considered Maryland and Pittsburgh.
Stop the presses. One-time St. John's Catholic Prep standout defensive end J.R. Ferguson, who transferred to Hargrave Military Academy for his senior year, is cutting his college choices down to 10 schools. It's a who's who of college football.
