Seminoles Turn to Hard-Cell Plan
If Florida Governor Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he might have some explaining to do to voters of New Jersey. Bush is the latest to take advantage of a loophole in NCAA rules that coaches have been abusing to no end: the text messaging of recruits. Bush took time from his schedule to send a text message to Myron Rolle, a hotshot prep defensive back from New Jersey. He did it on behalf of Florida State. One has to wonder what Gator and Hurricane fans have to think about that. Bush's effort appeared to pay off though, as Rolle is expected to sign Wednesday with the Seminoles. The text messaging issue no doubt just moved up a notch or two when the NCAA meets to review its recruiting regulations (registration).
