Camps, Combines Playing Bigger Role

I've got a story in today's dead-tree edition on how recruiting timetables are changing prompting camps and combines to play an ever-growing role in a prospect's recruiting. Consider Potomac sophomore Ron Darby, who held scholarship offers from Maryland and North Carolina before ever taking a varsity snap. He's not alone. Talking to one local high school coach who annually has players courted by top college programs, he was shaking his head at the so-called "combine warriors," remembering one recent opponent with a player headed to a Big East school. But even after preparing for and then playing the game, the coach still wasn't sure which player held the big-time scholarship. The coach noted the player no longer is on scholarship.
