2007 Football Commitments/Roster

Bag O' Cash = Recruiting Genius
On the heels of Chad Battles' recent commitment to the Orange, I've decided to create a recruiting log for reference purposes. While Scout.com and Rivals.com are terrifically sleazy at profiting off of high school athletes, the following is a filtered approach to seeing where the Orange are at in its 2007 recruiting effort.

Eventually (tomorrow?), I'll put together a roster chart for the 2007 football season so that a clearer illustration of depth and needs can be seen.

NOTE: 2006 commitments Andrey Baskin (WR), Jermaine Pierce (LB), and Matt Reid (DB) failed to academically qualify. These three players should be considered targets/commitments for 2007.
