NEWSWIRE: Beavs have work to do, says SN

FIFTEEN YEARS ago in the Pac-10, having nine or so commitments at the end of December put you ahead of the curve -- today such a total at years' end would be seen as a disaster. Oregon State has five known commitments, a tally that the Sporting News says caused them to include the Beavs in their series on the five college football programs that have the most work to do in the recruiting arena.

Texas A&M has 28 commitments, and nine BCS programs have 20 or more already and we're still more than five months away from national signing day. But not all of the BCS programs have their 2013 classes completed. In fact, two of them—Oregon State and Minnesota—have only five recruits apiece, the article reads.

NOTABLE NOTE:
When the Huskies fired head football coach Jim Lambright on December 30, 1998, he lamented the impact it would have on recruiting. Lambright said the Huskies were further ahead in commitments than they had ever been at that stage of the year. The number of commitments on board on Dec. 30? Nine.
