Redman is still weighing his options for college, having narrowed his choices to four schools -- Iowa, Kent State, Rutgers and Temple. He understands when people press him about Temple. After all, it is cousin Kevin's alma mater.

Florida's Top 100 Players and their leans
The Top 100 is compiled by Bill Buchalter with input from college and high school coaches. Remember: Recruiting lists are opinions. Selections also are based on projections of athletes at the college level, not on high school statistics or performance.
When Shagari Alleyne enters a room, usually by ducking his head under a doorway, he's greeted by well-wishes from his friends but gawks and gazes from strangers. When Alleyne enters a high school basketball game, he usually introduces himself by either slam dunking the ball on offense or blocking a shot on defense. At 7-foot-3 inches tall and 260 pounds, Alleyne stands above the rest of the field in the 16-team Bank of America City of Palms Classic as the tournament's tallest player.

Football Recruiting - Ones that got away
Chabot College cornerback Adrian Ward said he will sign a letter of intent to play for UTEP today, the opening day of the junior college signing period. "I've (verbally) committed to UTEP," said the 6-foot, 170-pound Ward, who visited the school Dec. 6-8. "The academics there are good, the team is close-knit, the coaches are excellent and the facilities are top of the line. I think I'll enjoy being there the next couple years."

More Opposition to the Merger
Two Essex legislators joined with concerned citizens at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey yesterday to speak out against a merger plan they said is intent on undermining the school's Newark campus and shifting the university's power base to Central New Jersey.
Sen. Ronald Rice (D-Essex) and Rep. Donald Payne (D-10th Dist.) were the keynote speakers for the breakfast meeting held at the UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School in Newark. Its primary purpose was to help mobilize opposition to Gov. James E. McGreevey's plan to merge UMDNJ with the state's two other major research universities, Rutgers and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Merger plan opponents receive key support
WORCESTER - People often assume that it must be fun being a sequoia in oak country. To be a 7-foot-6-inch, 300-pound basketball player such as Neil Fingleton of Holy Cross is to know that you never make a first impression. The best you can do is seconds; the first is always formed the moment you're spotted.
