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. The meaning is unclear, but it does point out that potential college players are being identified earlier and earlier. UNC took a commitment from Marshall, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard at O'Connell, on Wednesday. (Raleigh News & Observer)
