recruiting board update

Friday, and time for the recruiting board to get a little spit and shine. Right to it, then:


QB Kevin Newsome, who decommitted from Michigan. Our odds are not great here. The prevailing opinion is that he'll end up at Tech. I remain skeptical, given the limitations Tech has imposed on their class.


- RB Tavon Austin. Our odds are not good here either. Austin will visit Michigan, Georgia, and West Virginia and is talking about Maryland and Nebraska as well; that will likely be his slate of five officials.
- WR Justin Brown. Added BC to the mix.
- WR Sean Farr. Added Eastern Michigan offer.
- WR Timothy Smith. Smith named four favorites, and Boston College wasn't one of them, so they've been removed. Smith's official visit to UVA will be October 4 for the Twerps game.
- S Javanti Sparrow. Listed a top 6. (Via Varsity Blue.)

Nyshier Oliver is a player we have an offer out to, and he recently decommitted from Tennessee, but the odds are mega-slim here so I'm not going to add him unless something really changes later on.
