Jamar Nutter realizes that for the chips to fall into place, he must first orally commit to Rutgers, and hope his four AAU teammates follow suit to form the Scarlet Knights' version of the Fab Five.

The Seton Hall Prep senior is the apparent driving force in the plan to get four North Jersey recruits, and Delaware's reigning Player of the Year to Rutgers in a package deal for the 2003-04 recruiting class. He is ready to act and believes Paterson Catholic senior Marquis Webb is right behind him.

Big East Football - Will Pitt have any 'ships left?

Stretching its Ohio recruiting base from border-to-border, Pitt is making Ohio State pay for any hesitation in offering scholarships to its in-state stars.

Now that cornerback Eric Thatcher of Cincinnati Moeller and offensive tackle Mike McGlynn of Austintown Fitch have followed Dayton Chamindae-Julienne lineman Chris Vangas and Euclid defensive back Allen Richardson in choosing the Panthers, half of the Panthers' eight commitments from the Class of 2003 are from the Buckeye State.

Fan Feedback

Big fan of the site. It's sweet to get RU news out in LA. Just signed up
for the premium service.
One annoyance however. That damn register.com popup that comes up every
time you go to a story.
Can you set a cookie so that thing only comes up once?

Other than that, keep up the good work.
