Recruits getting younger each year

Kendall Marshall, the University of North Carolina's most recent basketball recruit, was ranked the top fifth-grade basketball player in the country by Sports Illustrated a few years ago. "Whatever that means," Arlington (Va.) O'Connell coach Joe Wootten said, laughing as he mentioned it.

UNC took a commitment from Marshall, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard at O'Connell, on Wednesday. (Raleigh News & Observer)
