John Millea, Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Comments made by Seantrel Henderson suggest the nation's No. 1 prep recruit is back on the market. Henderson, who gave a commitment to USC but didn't sign a letter of intent, was asked if NCAA sanctions could change his mind about going to USC. "Yeah, I think it would. But at the same time, I would have to, you know, talk to the coaches to see exactly what's going on and exactly what's going to happen and then base my decision upon what's going to be going on. Because that's the school I would like to go to, but then at the same time I just can't walk into anything that's going to, like, make my future, you know, not as good as it could be."
Ben Maller: Another wise individual agrees with the Wiz, that national signing day is for scam artists. Maller writes: "Many star high school football players end up as butchers, UPS drivers, construction workers, bread delivery guys etc. Just because you can play ball in 12th grade doesn't mean you can get it done at the next level."
