Having followed the 2010 recruiting season closely, I've noticed how surprise decisions by players like Keenan Allen, Robert Crisp and Demar Dorsey functioned like off-the-field "upsets" by the recruiting "underdogs".
As a Michigan fan, I've also seen that sometimes, one recruit can (briefly) turn a program, and it's embattled coach, around.
With those two ideas in mind, I'd like to present the 10 recruits whose commitments could save 10 of the programs with the most to lose in 2010.
Granted, these players can't help until 2011, and many of them are extreme longshots imaginable only in the most absurd universe.
But securing any of these players would, in my mind, give the coaches at each of these schools a pretty sturdy insurance policy against their own termination.
