recruiting board update

It's time for the whenever-I-want-to update to the recruiting board. Nothing fancy. Here's what's up:

- Dropped OG Luke Graham, who committed to Penn State.

- Changed Kyle Baublitz from a TE to a DE, because that's what he wants to play. ($)

- Added QB Sam Gibson, RB Juwan Thompson, and WR Tyrek Cheeseboro to yellow and CB Louis Young to red.

- Moved LB Ken Wilkins and S Kyrrel Latimer to blue. The Rivals headline on the Latimer story says this: "Cavs offer DeMatha DB Latimer, named favorite," which should tell you all you need to know even if you don't have a subscription.

If DeMatha sounds familiar, it's because it's starting to be a little bit of a pipeline our way. The last DB to come to UVA out of DeMatha was a guy named Rodney McLeod, whose name you heard oh about eleventy hundred thousand times during spring camp as a guy who's doing nicely for himself. This means probably not a whole lot, but it's pretty good news anyway. Wilkins gave us a nice shout too, but his recruitment's going to be a lot tougher given the names in hot pursuit. Like, Michigan and Ohio State. Wilkins has the meh-est ratings ever, but an offer pile the size of a small novel. When he cuts his list we'll be on it - when he cuts it again, we'll see.
