As the hoopla settles down from yesterday's excitement, there is still a bit of unfinished business for the current recruiting class. Wide receiver Robby Toma, a commit to UCLA, is still wavering on where he'll wind up this fall.
"When I sat down, I didn't feel like signing," said Toma, who lives in La'ie nearby Punahou linebacker and close friend Manti Te'o, the nation's top linebacker prospect who signed with Notre Dame. "I didn't fax it (to UCLA)."While ND waits for Toma's decision, they also had a bit of last minute drama with Florida safety Jawanza Starling. He announced his pick for USC over finalist Notre Dame, but didn't fax in his Letter of Intent. While Pete Carroll had his press conference last night talking about his new class, the ND coaches put in a last minute sales pitch to the undecided safety. Alas...
Notre Dame complicated matters by recently offering Toma a scholarship, and after Hawai'i coach Greg McMackin learned of Toma's indecision yesterday morning, he too made a last-minute scholarship offer.
One more!More on the recruiting class of 2009 once Toma makes his decision.
