Only one target left and Welcome Boubacar!

Turns out it was a trade as Ronald Johnson decided to go USC where he will be brought in as a WR after Donovan Warren committed to Michigan on Thursday night. There's a lot of rumors as to what caused the change from Michigan to USC but he's made up his mind so I'll wish him well and move on. It's a lot easier to move on when we picked up Boubacar Cissoko as the first commitment for the class of 2008. Cissoko went down to the US Army Combine for juniors the week of the All American game and impressed so much he was named MVP there. He will be one of the top corners in the country, and should be the #1 CB in the midwest at least. Only concern with him is his height, currently listed at 5-9, but he's only a junior, he still can grow a couple inches.

The reason there's only one target left is due to Rashad Mason's commitment to North Carolina. Mason would have been a great pickup but I can't fault his decision when UNC has early playing time available, closer to home and when Butch Davis gets the last in-home visit I figured he would be going there. Now we wait on Jerimy Finch and who knows there may be a last minute surprise or two of some local sleeper that the coaches take a flyer on.
