Well, now I have some names of some POSSIBLE incoming freshmen thanks to some of those online scouting websites.
Again, I attribute all this information to Scout.com. MaxPreps.com, ESPN's "Insider" service, and the random voices in my head brought on by having a newborn at home. None of this info came to me via tips or other breaches of NCAA rules.
Rememeber, NONE of the names listed below can be considered "definite" incoming freshmen by any stretch. Many of them are probably just high on our "hoped for" list right now.
Okay, disclaimer over.

First up is Harnish Ayora, a speedy running back from Arizona. Click here and scroll down to the very bottom for a look at Ayora's eye-popping numbers from his final regular season game.
Next, we have defensive end Julien Buck, a 6"3 defensive lineman from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in Massachusetts. It looks like Buck had 41 tackles and two sacks in six games this past fall.
WR/DB/KR Davis Burck from Strake Jesuit in Houston, TX caught 15 TD's in his senior season. Check out his highlights here.
Dan Cebula (CREDIT: Rivals.com)
All-purpose back Dan Cebula from Lincoln Way East High School in the Chicago suburb Frankfort Illinois. In 13 games last season, Cebula had 765 yards rushing and 348 yards receiving.
C.J. Croft (CREDIT: Rivals.com)
C.J. Croft is a QB from Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. I've got his picture above, but not his stats.
Chris Garcia is a running back from New Mexico. We've had an eye on him since July.
Ryan Haslett (CREDIT: Rivals.com)
Ryan Haslett is a QB from Holmdel High School in New Jersey.
David Slapyznski is another QB from Fraser, Michigan.
Dan Vanik is a kicker from Catonsville, MD.
Andrew Weiss Revs up the Crowd (CREDIT: Bangor Daily News)
And Andrew Weiss, a quarterback from Rockland, Maine warms my heart because 1) He's from a HS not far from my former, (briefly), home of Bangor, and 2) Because he's secure enough to double as a cheerleader, (see above). Now that takes guts!
