this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Football: Recruiting Board Updated
Update 7/18: Removed DE Patrick Rigan (MSU), QB Neil Caudle(Auburn), DT Jason Kates (ceased listing us), DT Jared Odrick (ceased listing us).
Editorial Opinion: No real surprises here. Marques Slocum getting pushed back to the 2006 class lessens the need for a DT this year, though there are still a couple of possibilities out there (KY's Aundre Henderson and Corey Peters). Caudle was expected to go to Auburn from the start. Rigan is a good pickup for MSU who may have earned an offer if he waited into his senior year. The Spartans are (mostly) holding off other Big Ten programs for the instate players that were recently going to places like Purdue.
