A STAY-AT-HOME LINEUP
The news wasn't all bad for USC last week: Agoura ( Calif.) junior tackle Kevin Graf committed to the Trojans. The 6'6", 302-pound Graf, a 2007 Nike Underclassman All-America, will be the third member of his family to play for USC, following dad Alan and older brother Derek. Graf is the fourth in-state recruit from the class of 2009, joining Dominguez ( Compton) linebacker Marquis Simmons, Carson tight end Morrell Presley and Cathedral ( Los Angeles) wide receiver Randall Carroll.
NO WINNERS IN THIS FIGHT
After a bench-clearing brawl between Miramar ( Fla.) and Flanagan ( Pembroke Pines, Fla.) on Sept. 28, the Florida High School Athletic Association suspended 58 players—29 from each school—for one to six weeks. Among the banned players is Miramar senior quarterback Eugene Smith (left), who threw 15 touchdown passes in the opening four games of the season. Both schools lost their first games without the suspended players.
