As we get ready for the upcoming Signing Day and prepare for Spring Camp, we've begun updating our databases. We've updated our roster with player weights, and are working on our scholarship tracker. As a result, we're preparing to track several NEW players in the program who joined the Vandals with last year's recruiting class, including 3-star cornerback T.J. TAYLOR who redshirted last fall.

The Vandals recruited another solid class this year (ranked among the top in the WAC by Scout) featuring balance on both sides of the ball. The class includes 3-star recruit COREY WHITE out of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, rated the #58 runningback prospect in the country by Scout.com this year. He'll get his shot at immediate playing time this fall for the Vandals, and is ready to go.

Corey White visited Colorado State in December and looked like a lock to end up as a Ram, but after they filled all theirs spots he found himself searching for alternate choices. White's only offer now is from Idaho, but he thinks he also has a good chance of getting scholarships from New Mexico and Wyoming and plans to visit both the Lobos and Cowboys before Signing Day.

"I was supposed to visit Washington this weekend, but Coach (Tyrone) Willingham wasn't going to be there," said Las Vegas running back Corey White. "So, I'm going to Colorado State instead. It really comes down to Washington and Colorado State. I'll probably make a decision once I get back from Colorado State and have a chance to visit Washington on an official visit..."

EVERYTHING ON OFFENSE starts up front, college coaches say. If you're solid on the offensive line, you don't have to be picture perfect in some other areas -- yet the results often will be. One of the top prep line recruits in the nation, Scout.com's No. 11 overall prep prospect at offensive guard, Las Vegas' Po'u Palelei holds double digit offers, one of which is from Oregon State.
