from Michael Casagrande: "This has been a great time in my life, I have had the rare opportunity to be able to choose from many great schools that would allow me to get a college degree and continue to play the game that I love.This has been a very difficult decision only because I was able to meet and get to know so many wonderful coaches at so many great universities. "I have chosen to attend the University of Alabama. I am honored that I will get to learn from Coach Saban and Coach Nussmeier and will get to represent Alabama, the state and the University. I want to thank my coaches at Cottonwood for all they have done for me and mostly to my parents who have made this all possible."

Gunner Kiel re-opens recruitment

Top quarterback recruit Gunner Kiel, who stunned a lot of people by committing to his home-state Hoosiers in July, is wavering on his commitment and plans to visit other schools, according to reports. Kiel told Peegs.com that he informed IU head coach Kevin Wilson of that decision on Thursday night. He plans on making an unofficial visit to Notre Dame this weekend to see the Irish play USC in the school's first night game on campus in 20 years.

Last month, when athletic officials from the Southeastern Conference met in Destin, Fla., the annual gathering had an eye-popping moment. Julie Roe Lach, the N.C.A.A.’s vice president for enforcement, made a presentation to the group, which included every men’s basketball coach, football coach and athletic director in the conference. When she opened up the room for discussion, Auburn’s football coach, Gene Chizik, raised his hand first. He peppered Roe Lach with a flurry of questions about the N.C.A.A.’s investigation into Cam Newton and why the N.C.A.A. had not publicly announced that the investigation was over. Chizik complained that the inquiry’s open-ended nature had hurt Auburn’s recruiting and he followed up at least three times, leading to a testy exchange. "You’ll know when we’re finished," Roe Lach told Chizik, according to several coaches who were at the meeting. "And we’re not finished."

Corey Grant to AU?

5

"A HS coach I know very well text to let me know Corey Grant has enrolled at Auburn. The coach is working at AU today, says it's official." Per Andrew Bone's Twitter of Scout.com ED: Not so fast on the "official." Per Bone's Twitter: "On Corey Grant: The news is not official. He is not enrolled at AU just yet, but is working on it. He did leave Alabama two weeks ago." Writing's on the wall at this point, Grant is more than likely landing at Auburn, but I would be shocked if he was actually granted a release to the Barn. Wherever he lands, he's gone, and it's looking more and more likely that Dee Hart will be getting some quality snaps as a true freshman.

Police tell News 5 Barron lied to police in an attempt to cover for his cousin who left the scene of an accident. Someone called 911 about 5:00 a.m. to report an abandoned vehicle on I-10 at Michigan Avenue. When the officer arrived, Barron was with the 2008 Chrysler 300, which had hit the retaining wall. Barron told police a man he only knew as "Bull" had taken his car from Shotgun Willies, a night club in the 4100 block of Government Blvd. But during the investigation, police learned Barron's cousin, Jamal Lang, was actually driving the car at the time of the crash. Lang will be issued a citation for leaving the scene of an accident. Police say after they learned about Lang's involvement, they gave Barron every opportunity to change his story. The arresting officer says he begged Barron to tell the truth, showed him the law about hindering prosecution and explained he would have to arrest him if Barron continued to cover for his cousin. Police say they even got Barron's mother and grandmother to try and convince him. But Barron refused to admit his cousin was driving the car.

Former University of Alabama linebacker Chris Keys told tidesports.com Monday that online blog reports indicating he has made accusations of receiving improper benefits in exchange for signing with the Crimson Tide in 2005 are untrue. In fact, Keys said, reports of his appearance of any kind on an upcoming episode of Home Box Office's Real Sports program are false. "I haven't even talked to HBO," said Keys, who now resides in Chattanooga, Tenn. "My mom told me about it when she first heard about it, but there isn't anything to it. I've had some people ask me about it, but I don't know what they're talking about."

Crowell’s mom ‘not selling my son’s soul to the devil’

21

Isaiah Crowell’s mother said she’s thrilled about their family friend Quintavious Harrow receiving a scholarship offer from Georgia, but not if it comes with any attachments to her son. "Well, for Quintavious it’s wonderful," Deborah Crowell told me Monday. "But I don’t want them to do it to get Isaiah there. I’m not selling my son’s soul to the devil. This is his decision. If they want to give Quintavious a scholarship, that’s fine. But that can’t have anything to do with Isaiah. He has too much pressure on him as it is and I’m going to lay that on the line with them. We’ll discuss that while we’re up there." Crowell, No. 1 on the AJC Fab 50 list, will be taking his official visit to Georgia this weekend along with his mother and the rest of his family. So will Harrow, better known as "Cootie" to family and friends. The 5-11, 190-pound linebacker/safety from Carver-Columbus — who is Crowell’s best friend — received a scholarship offer from the Bulldogs last week, his first from any school. The Harrows and the Crowells, who have known each other since their kids were in kindergarten, just got back from a trip to Tuscaloosa and the University of Alabama this past weekend. They left very impressed with coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. "It was wonderful," said Mrs. Crowell, who will also accompany her son and his final visit to Auburn on Jan. 28. "They kept us busy, but we had fun. They had everything planned out and stuck by it all weekend. My husband and I had a wonderful time and Isaiah did, too."

As Isaiah Crowell prepared to leave Columbus for Tuscaloosa and his official visit to Alabama Friday afternoon, Georgia was making moves behind the scenes to try to ensure that the state’s No. 1 player comes their way. The Bulldogs offered a scholarship to Crowell’s teammate and close friend Quintavious Harrow on Thursday, Carver-Columbus coach Dell McGee confirmed. Better known as "Cootie" to his family and friends, Harrow (5-foot-10, 180 pounds) played a linebacker/safety position known as the "pony" in the Tigers’ 3-5-3 defense. He’s expected to played defensive back in college. "It’s good to see Quintavious get a great offer like UGA," McGee said. By all accounts, Georgia is the only school from which Harrow has received an offer so far. The only reference to him among the recruiting services is an account of him running a 4.46-second 40-yard dash — pretty impressive — at the Scout Showcase combine in Atlanta last summer.
