Friday night links
Schools, as I noted in the previous post, are at various stages of the 2011 recruiting process. Though it's hard to beat where Rutgers stands -- a top 10 class with only one scholarship left to give -- there's a lot of recruiting left to be done.

The guard, rated a three-star recruit, picked the Hawkeyes over Illinois, Minnesota and Arizona State.

That'll do it tonight for hoops tonight. But we'll be in action with links and hoops talk over the weekend. And if you're interested in talking football (or even chiming in with an occasional hoops comment), stop by one of Trentonian.com's three football chats this weekend: The high school chat that kicks off tonight at 6:50; The Saturday high school chat that begins tomorrow morning at 10:50; or the Rutgers-Tulane chat, which starts at 1:50 -- 10 minutes before the Scarlet Knights and Green Wave kick off in Piscataway.
