* James Franklin and staff closed nicely and brought 15 3-star prospects into the Commodore program.  Included in that count are four O-line prospects.

* Vandy also signed three quarterbacks (one being listed as an ATH) including Lafonte Thourogood who had been committed to Virginia Tech.  Thourogood’s coach said that the player believes “he’s got a chance to play quarterback really early.”  ‘Dore fans should hope that stealing a QB from Virginia Tech is a sign of things to come.

* In need of receivers, Ole Miss inked five including three 4-star pass-catchers.

* The Rebels landed the top five players in that state of Mississippi and eight of the top 12.  Don’t think Houston Nutt isn’t enjoying that fact (and the fact that Dan Mullen is having is having to swallow it).

* Landing one 4-star and 21 3-star prospects isn’t bad at all… but State’s class was passed by Ole Miss.  That has to be frustrating for a coaching staff that has bested the Rebels in back-to-back Egg Bowls.

* Of MSU’s 22 signees, 16 came from within the Magnolia State.

* Last year wasn’t a great year for prospects inside the state of Louisiana.  Not so in 2011.  Of the Tigers 22 signees, 16 were homegrown.

* The Tigers needed to find a replacement for defensive tackle Drake Nevis and they hope they found that man in the person of five-star signee Anthony Johnson.

* Auburn is still waiting for Cyrus Kouandjio — who committed to AU today — to sign his letter of intent.  Alabama is still in the picture as well.

* Auburn nabbed 10 players from the state of Alabama.

* The Tigers also signed eight lineman to replace the many starters departing from last year’s championship squad.
