Seantrel Henderson will announce his college choice on Febraury 3rd on ESPN. Iowa fans at this link discuss their chances of Henderson heading south.

Notre Dame fans are also discussing the possibility of Henderson landing out in their neck of Indiana. Perhaps Brian "The Leprechaun" Kelly will sway Seantrel with his same persuasive message that lured talent to Cincinnati and captivated his Bearcat Players...until he abandoned them before their bowl game and the players realized they had been fooled:

"He told us from the get-go that we'd be the first people to know whatever he decides," senior quarterback Tony Pike said Thursday evening before the team banquet. "We're going to keep him at his word. We've trusted him this far and we're going to believe what he says."

As it turns out, Kelly's players were among the last to know. And by the end of the evening, plenty of them were voicing their displeasure.

"We don't really care what he has to say anymore," tight end Ben Guidugli said after a post-banquet team meeting. "He can go talk to his Notre Dame team."

Marcus Fuller at the Pioneer Press gives more details about James Green and his decommitment from the Gophers:

A former standout at Leon High School in Tallahassee, Green signed a nonbinding letter of intent with the Gophers during the mid-year period in December. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound former Tennessee recruit was expected to join Minnesota for spring practice, but he is enrolled at Toledo, according to Rockets team spokesman Paul Helgren.

Terrell Combs, who left the football team last Fall, is reportedly enrolling at the University of Kentucky. Apparently he'll be able to play on the offensive side of the ball, whereas at Minnesota he had been moved to defense:

Combs played as a true freshman in 2008, seeing reserve action as a tight end. He was moved to defensive end at the spring of 2009 by Minnesota Coach Tim Brewster and decided to look elsewhere.

Combs said he doesn't have a preference for where he plays at Kentucky but said that head coach Joker Phillips will likely start him on offense. The Cats lost its top three tight ends to graduation, leaving Colorado transfer Ryan Wallace and redshirt freshman Anthony Kendrick as the only scholarship tight ends currently on the roster.
