It's one of the basic rules of recruiting publicity. An athlete looking for maximum PR should always commit late, rather than early. To illustrate: Alabama actually had not one, but two receivers in last week for an official visit that were both First Team (3A) All-State from Florida. <br><br>Who were they?
