2/24 Recruiting Update

Introducing T.J. Cummings:

Maryland, Rutgers and Duke told Clemmings he could play football in their respective programs, and on Wednesday, Notre Dame joined the mix.

Corey Brown now has an Alabama offer in hand.

Khairi Fortt seems like the other big name in the Northeast right now.

Fortt has visited Connecticut, Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia and Boston College. Next weekend Fortt plans to visit Cal.

"We haven’t narrowed things down yet," Fortt said. "Right now we are just going out and seeing colleges and evaluating them. We’re gathering information. We’ll narrow it down some later in the spring."

Savon Huggins is already getting hype for 2011.

In case Oklahoma fans missed it in my recruiting notebook from the Five Star Academy held in New Jersey this past Sunday, St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) 2011 stud running back Savon Huggins idolizes former Sooners running back Adrian Peterson. That could give OU a great shot when the recruiting heats up on Huggins, who wears No. 28 in high school because of Peterson, has an upright running style like Peterson and has a similar build to Peterson at the same stage.

Connecticut back Silas Redd finally picked up an offer from Rutgers. However, any article with a headline like "Redd: 'Penn State is my dream school'" tells you all you need to know here.

Nick Forbes took a trip out west over the weekend.

Forbes now holds offers from Boston College, Cal, Maryland, Pitt, Rutgers, Stanford, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech.

It’s too early for him to start to narrow things down, though.

Receiver Brandon Coleman has an offer, and has already visited.

Marvin Robinson has an offer, but Rutgers isn't in his top four.

Despite the long list of suitors, Robinson did mention a few schools that stick out, "I like Michigan, Ohio State, South Florida and North Carolina. I like those four the most. They are all equal right now. But I'm still wide open to any college. I won't decide until after my senior season."

Cody Riggs is getting more offers.

Junior Cody Riggs has already been offered by Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Boston College and Duke, ESPN affiliate Web site InsideTheU.com reports.

De'Joshua Johnson grew up a FSU fan, and plans to make his commitment this fall.

Other reported new offers in the past week include Daquan Jones, Chris Fonti, and Jordan Haden.

Tight End Kevin Haplea doesn't have an offer yet, but Pitt recently sent him his first.

Pitt was the first school to offer North Hunterdon Regional (Annandale, N.J.)tight end Kevin Haplea. But other schools, including Boston College, Connecticut, Syracuse, Maryland, Rutgers and Virginia, could follow soon. Haplea has been to numerous junior days already; he plans to be at Syracuse and UConn soon and also wants to visit Penn State.

Also on the watchlist, there were recent articles on Shakim Phillips, Tony Jones, and Robert Welsh.

Scout has offered a group of former site affiliates $5 million to settle their class action lawsuit.
