State," the 4-star prospect told Scout.com. "I got done with school

done with now? I've been thinking about it a lot." ...

Beavs land field general
FOR LYLE MOEVAO, perhaps the top CCCCA quarterback prospect this year,
it turns out he will be plying his wares in the Pac-10 instead. After a
visit to Corvallis this week, the 6-0, 225-pound quarterback from El
Camino College sat down with his JC coach and came to a decision today.
With his junior college coach’s blessing, he picked up the phone, called
Mike Riley and became a Beaver. He will have four to play three
and is expected to compete with Sean Canfield for the starting spot next

Camp takes longer route to scholarship
Brady Camp isn't one to boast about his accomplishments, but he figured
he'd done enough to earn the attention of college football coaches.
After all, he was one of only three athletes to earn Class 4A first-team
all-state honors on offense and defense last season and he's always been
an honor roll student. Still, by late January, the Barlow senior was
without a Division I scholarship offer ...

Focused on his dream
At first James Dockery had a difficult time accepting the obvious.
He was now a minority -- this after being a member of the majority for
most of his life. He arrived in Palm Desert just in time to enroll in
middle school and it was clear this desert city didn't resemble the
heavily minority communities of West Covina or Pomona, where he was born
and raised. And it certainly wasn't New York's Spanish Harlem, where he
had lived the previous five years of his life ...

Choking Dog team roster is filling up
Gary Payton for choking on his commitment — and his words. The Heat

Sleeping with the Enemy
Oregon’s new Nike-designed football uniforms are being unveiled today.
No, they’re not quite as extreme as the illustration shown at right, but
they’re predictably silly nonetheless, featuring four different jerseys,
four different pants, and three different helmets, all of which can be
mixed and matched (plus there will be several different undersleeve
options, creating even more of a crazy-quilt effect). They’ve also
reprised the diamondplate pattern and the “Oregon” and “O” on the pants,
all of which first appeared in last year’s Civil War game. Basically,
the whole thing is ridiculous, which is pretty much what everyone
