Will These Blue-Chip Recruits Commit To In-State Schools?

There's something in the American character that makes us respect talented people who don't stray far from where they grew up. The poorer and more dastardly the circumstances, the greater the sacrifice the hero is making...and the bigger louse he is for leaving.
