I don't follow college football recruiting, and you will not find up to the minute updates on blue chip recruits on this site - but there is news to be shared today.
Again, it's Sal with the scoop.
The U.S. Military Academy has hired a new athletic director: Boo Corrigan who comes to West Point from Duke University.
Corrigan, a 1990 Notre Dame graduate, is the son of former Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner Gene Corrigan. He worked as an associate athletic director at Notre Dame for five years. Corrigan also spent three years as Navy's associate athletic director for marketing.
To be honest I've been a lot more interested in the search for an athletic director than I was with any recruiting news for the academy.
If that's your thing though, Sal's blog has a ton of info for you.
He's also got a list of the 2011 commits posted.

One last thing to note as it looks like Trent Steelman will miss spring ball as he recovers from shoulder work.
I think we can all agree that Steelman deserves the time off. Of course it would be great to have him working out in the spring session, but Trent has taken a lot of punishment in the last two years. Besides, spring ball at West Point comes early and as long as #8 is ready to go by September, I'm cool with that.
