UPDATED: USD Football Recruits….So Far

UPDATE (02/03/10): One more name to the list before the official list is released by USD.

This is the time of the year when you start reading more and more about high school football players committing to various colleges.

Football recruiting is big business anymore, and people certainly take notice.

And as evidenced by some of the questions the P&D sports staff has received in our weekly Live Chats (every Wednesday at 3 p.m.), I can tell that there’s definitely an interest around the area for University of South Dakota football recruits.

I’ve never been one to get overly excited about National Signing Day (which is Wednesday, Feb. 3), but I’ll admit, it’s interesting to watch the trends and which school gets what high-profile recruit.

With that in mind, here’s a list of USD recruits that I’ve been able to piece together from various Web sites and area media outlets. Obviously, there will be additions to this list by Feb. 3, but these are the names I’ve run across.
