    Was told to touch base with you about the Kirk Herbstreit Classic in Dallas on Monday. What recruits do you want me to concentrate on? I know about the Skyline kids and the Destoto ones. Who from Cocoa and Clarksville should I talk to?

    Michael, I saw on ESPN USC has 26 commits. I thought they only had 15 scolarships this year. I woud have thought they would only be able to sign 18 commits and give out 15 scolarships. There has to be something I'm not understanding.
