Lesson learned: If you are Tim Tebow, don’t you ever talk to a recruit on the phone.
Duke is good almost every year, because they have coach Mike Krzyzewski and a storied basketball program and they don’t mind if you one-and-done them because we all know the “student-athlete” concept is a big joke. They’ll (probably/definitely) lose Jabari Parker after this season, but no worries — they just nabbed the number one and number four overall recruits in the country for 2014.
Nick Saban could just use his BCS Championship trophies as a recruiting pitch, because what says “come play football for us” better than three national championships in the last four years? Oh, money does.
The Kentucky Wildcats have a problem. No, not losing to Robert Morris – their exclusion from the NCAA Tournament by those damn liberal socialists already harpooned their morale. The problem is, in regular basketball circles, usually draped in positivity. They have too many good players. Or, at least, players worthy of playing time.
Myles Crosby is a 6-3, 205-pound safety from Colleyville Heritage High School in Texas that recorded 108 tackles, two forced fumbles and 13 passes defensed in his senior season. He has committed to play football next year at SMU. Rivals ranks him as a two-star recruit. ESPN only has a few videos and bits of information on him. Models.com ranks him 11th.

Christmas morning for recruiting fanatics a.k.a. the creepiest day of the sports year. And while it’s early, it’s tough to imagine any school having a better day today than Ole Miss.
Everyone knows that the NCAA’s recruiting rules are both behind the times and unfairly punitive. But it appears that the NCAA has taken it one step further, banning coaches from “altering photos for recruiting purposes.” Which, in short, essentially bans them from using Instagram.
Adam Breneman is a 6-5, 228 pound tight end that committed to playing football at Penn State last March. But the class of 2013 recruit hasn’t stopped hearing from other schools, including Ole Miss, who decided to overwhelming him with a smattering of hand-written recruiting letters: 32 in all, in fact.
