We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.
Where the madness isn't just in March.
You have no favorite boards.
Practices kicked off on Thursday for the O/D Bowl and here are some photos from the afternoon practice of the American squad that includes several highly touted prospects.

Thanks for putting this together, Brian.
Notre Dame commit Isaac Rochell is more lean than he appeared to be at the Rising Seniors event last year at this time, and has taken a more aggressive approach in his training regimen. He's a player that the Irish targeted early for the defensive line haul to continue a run of touted players among the defensive front -- Stephon Tuitt, Louis Nix III and others being part of that group.
After landing Rochell, Notre Dame is working on his teammate, junior Andrew Williams, who is at the Georgia Junior Bowl and wants to get to South Bend with the Irish pledge in January.
While it was expected that Rochell would be playing in one of the Big 3 All-American settings, it will still present an opportunity for the talented lineman and sole Irish commit in the contest (four ND pledges played in the 2011 game) to showcase his ability as he prepares for the transition to the collegiate level.

Looks like Wisconsin and UCLA are well-represented on this team.

Really nice, Brian. Arizona has high hopes for Devin Holiday. He had a really strong second half of his senior season after a very steady junior year. Arizona needs "emergency" help in its secondary as Rich Rod and Casteel want a true two-deep at every defensive position. 4 of the 10 secondary slots are pretty much solidified, but there's some room for Holiday to try and compete and possibly earn time as a true frosh.

Good stuff Brian!
I know the Iowa staff feels they got a major steal with both Solomon Warfield and Sean Welsh. It'll be interesting to see how they fare this week.
