Notre Dame’s Pursuit of Committed Prospect Suggests Hoops Recruiting Is Mirroring Football (Jeff Eisenberg, Yahoo! - October 2, 2012)
Earlier this offseason, Tom Crean took to Twitter to complain that "more and more people never stop recruiting other school's pledges" soon after top Indiana target Trey Lyles announced he was reopening his recruitment.
Kansas commit Brannen Greene told SI.com last week he's still being recruited with the fervor by other staffs as if he were still undecided.
Then on Tuesday, via CBSports.com's Jeff Borzello, comes the story of Austin Torres, a 6-foot-6 Indiana native who committed to Central Michigan last week only to renege on that pledge when Notre Dame coach Mike Brey offered a scholarship four days later.
"I told coach Brey on Thursday that this was a dream and something I wanted to pursue," Torres told CBSSports.com. "I was sure I wanted this to happen. And then I decommitted on Friday."
However you feel about Brey's decision to pluck Torres from Central Michigan, it's a reminder of one thing: Nothing is final in recruiting in either football or basketball until the signing period begins and pen can finally hit paper.
