The young starlet [Alex Morgan] has been enjoying a supremely productive 2012. She’s tallied her last 14 goals in this calendar year alone. Oh, and they’ve all come in just 12 appearances.
She has now scored 13 of the USWNT’s last 28 goals.
And here’s the most impressive statistic yet. If Morgan continues on this pace, she’ll have the third most prolific year of any USWNT striker in the program’s history.
5. Cal Class of 2005
Top Players - DeSean Jackson, Tyson Alualu, Syd'Quan Thompson, Zack Follett, Desmond Bishop, Cameron Morrah, Anthony Felder, Lavelle Hawkins
Cal has earned a reputation for bringing in top talent but never really being able to win with it and the fact that they didn't win more games with this huge haul that they brought in with the 2005 class is very supportive evidence for that argument. Jackson was one of the most explosive players in recent conference history and Alualu, Thompson, Follett and Bishop were All-Conference stalwarts.
1. J.J. Arrington - RB - Class of 2003 - Rocky Mount, NC - College of the Canyons (Santa Clarita, CA) - Cal
Cal scored big when they snagged Arrington out of College of the Canyons, where he had been placed by East Carolina in hopes that the tough running back would return after completing his JC degree. After a controversial recruiting battle between Cal and Oregon where Ducks running back coach Gary Campbell forged Arrington's father's signature (How he kept his job after this is confounding), Cal got Arrington for two years and he made them count. After a solid junior season, Arrington put together one of the best seasons any running back has ever had in college football, racking up more than 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns.
In the next season I will play in Zags uni!
The Lions interviewed Washington running back Chris Polk, Ohio State running back Daniel Herron and [Boise State running back Doug] Martin during this week's Senior Bowl in Mobile. Detroit running back Jahvid Best is still recovering from a series of concussions and many within the organization are concerned if he will play football again.
"There are three schools still in it, and I can't tell the schools, but everybody will see Wednesday (on National Signing Day) and I'll make my final choice."
Peoria (Az) Centennial safety Zach Hoffpauir decommitted from Cal today.
