    Ole Miss traditionally makes over 300 offers each year. Just be careful about committing too early. It doesn't count until National Signing Day in Feburary of Senior year. There are NO early signing periods in football. Good luck.

    Utah didn't offer because they were waiting to see if BYU would... As usual

    Other than 'Ole MISS, which is busily offering everybody and their mothers, too, his only other offers were from usu, weber state and byu's annual-opponent, the mighty idaho vandals. Hardly an impressive list, to say the very least.

    I wish this kid all the best and, as an ASU Football season ticket holder, I'll hopefully get to see him inside of Sun Devil Stadium someday soon, but it's obvious UTAH has their eyes on others, instead, as they didn't even offer this kid, in the first place.

    The first post just goes to show, there are very few BYU fans, mostly just Ute haters.

    Seriously, the writer should understand recruiting before writing these articles. First of all big congratulations to Korey Rush for receiving an offer. However, be careful not to jump the gun as this article indicates. Lets hope you even receive a "letter of intent" from ASU. All you have is one of the more than 150 + offers ASU will make for the class of 2014 and out of the 150 plus they can only give 25 NLI's. read what happened at Western Michigan this past season, when they hired a new coach, 4 kids from Indiana committed based on the offer and Western Michigan pulled out because the new coach didn't want those players. Word to Mr Phibbs, please choose different words. He may or may not sign a Letter of Intent. It's only an offer at this point.

    Brave Sir Robin said,

    "(his parents were both BYU athletes themselves),".

    Why don't you tell us all exactly what sport Dale Murphy played at BYU. If you know the history of Dale Murphy's conversion to the church, you will discover he did not join until he was in the minor league's.

    That being said, your point is well taken that both schools lose recruits in their own back yards.

    Oops! Something went terribly wrong here. A THREE Star recruit slipping through the BYU net over American Fork High just up the road. What's up with that?

    Oh, and on top of that, he is a "legacy kid" (his parents were both BYU athletes themselves), the kind of recruit Bronco went on record as saying he'll never lose. He also scored a touchdown for Utah against BYU last season.

    The player's name? Jake Murphy.

    So as you can see, every school except maybe Ohio St. is going to lose a few recruits from right under their noses...even the venerable independence-loving BYU Cougars.

    Oops! Something went terribly wrong here. A THREE Star recruit slipping through the Ute net over East High just down the hill. What's up with that?

    I thought all Utah kids destined for a BCS conference or the PAC10.2 were lining up on the hill?

    I guess after last year's spanking by ASU playing for the Utes was not in the cards for Korey. Korey has his sights on something bigger like... winning a few games and having fun doing it.

    When the Utes get clobbered again by the Sun Devils this fall I will definitely be watching for Korey.
