Recruiting - Football

Ray Herring is a talented recruit considering GT.........

They'll come from Notre Dame, home of Touchdown Jesus, The Four Horsemen and, Fighting Irish coaches hope. They'll come from Maryland and Mississippi and the dozens of other schools who'll send coaches to check out Holy Trinity's senior star, one of America's top 100 high school football players.

Herring's only worry these days is how to pare down his massive list of schools to the five allowed campus visits. He has firm offers from 16 major college programs, including his four current favorites - Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Maryland. They're all enamored with his 4.5-second speed in the 40-yard dash, not to mention his 3.5 GPA.

Here's Ray's online recruiting notebook........... Here's an interesting look at recruiting philosophy....... Meanwhile, one of the recruiting "guru's" over at this Ohio State site thinks that Maurice Wells is an 80-90% lock for Ohio State. Other stories out recently indicate he is pretty sure where he wants to go, but will continue to wait until mid-January to make his announcement........ Here's more on WR commit Greg Smith (per AJC).......... Class of 2006 running back Carlos Brown is likely to be a strong target next year. Currently he favors GT over UGA in terms of in-state schools, but is considering many other out-of-state as well.
