Reporters' Notebooks

Eric Sondheimer, Los Angeles Times: While UCLA keeps plugging away, the top high school players continue to flock to USC, despite increased competition for playing time.

Susan Miller Degnan and Manny Navarro, Miami Herald: Has Miami turned its back on recruiting from its fertile backyard? Some observers of the program are saying that is the case (registration).

Don Banks, You wanted a mock draft, we've got a mock draft. A first look at what can be expected in the first round of the NFL draft, scheduled for April 29-30.

Derek Belt, Mobile Register: Hardly a word was mentioned about Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst before the Senior Bowl. That changed Saturday when he became the star among stars.

Ron Higgins, Commercial Appeal: If rules were meant to be broken, then there are some dumb rules. Take the case involving Deuce McAllister and two Mississippi recruits, for example (registration).

Kyle Ringo, Boulder Daily Camera: Colorado's recruiting efforts are running on empty in Texas, a state that has served the Buffaloes well in the past (registration).

John Heuser, Ann Arbor News: David Cone is headed to Michigan. Not the pitcher, the quarterback from Georgia.
