This is good news, both for this young man and for the program.

While recruiting rankings really shouldn't be given much credence, it's often interesting to see the variance between Rivals and Scout.

I'm starting to think a more credible source might be ESPN.com. Four of AU's commitments are listed there and the site seems to provide in-depth analysis of players' merits and upside.
