SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Imagine if someone had suggested two weeks ago that by Saturday, Florida wouldn't even have the most unstable coaching situation in its own state -- much less the entire country. The thought would have been preposterous.
But two weeks removed from Gators coach
Florida also received a commitment from Philadelphia's
"No matter where I went, I would have been taking a risk," said Floyd, who also considered Ohio State. "But at the end of the day, Florida's going to be Florida. Not to say Coach Meyer is leaving or anything, but you don't take a 13-1 team to an 0-13 team. That doesn't happen."
The Gators also received their second commitment from West Palm Beach, Fla., safety
The NCAA is investigating a visit by two Tennessee recruiting hostesses to Byrnes High's game against Gaffney in Duncan on Sept. 25. Though neither Willis nor teammate and fellow Tennessee commitment
Gary Willis said Tennessee coaches have calmed his fears, and he said he wanted his son to have the final say in his school choice. "He said, 'Daddy, I gave my word.' I had to be quiet," Gary Willis said.
Marcoux, a 6-foot-5, 244-pounder who attends the Fieldston School in the Bronx, won a spot on the Fox Sports Net show
Marcoux already has been accepted to Dartmouth, but he may suddenly find himself with more options after his second-half performance Saturday. For most of the day, the East offense couldn't move the ball against the West defense. Marcoux, playing against defenders bound for elite FBS programs, calmly guided the East down the field for two fourth-quarter touchdowns. In the process, he showed off an arm every bit as strong as fellow All-Americans who were committed to Penn State, BYU, West Virginia and Iowa.
While Ivy League schools such as Dartmouth don't offer scholarships, some schools that do may be calling Marcoux after his performance Saturday. "If other coaches decide they want to give me a call and offer their schools," Marcoux said, "I owe it to them to consider."
