Recruiting notes

Emptying the notebook.
More teams are recruiting nationally and the Pac-10 is no exception. Consider the number of states represented in each class.

Arizona: 9
Arizona State: 5
California: 8
Oregon:9
Oregon State: 4
Stanford: 12
UCLA: 7
USC: 6
Washington: 4
Washington State: 4

Of course, some of that is junior college players, which stacks the deck. Still, this is a national trend -- the recruiting world is getting smaller, so it's easier to reach out.

Consider SEC recruiting super powers Alabama and Florida, which tapped nine and seven states, respectively.

The exception is Texas, which only cherry picked three out-of-state players for its class of 25.
