Anthony January Recruiting Update

Many people have been wondering about the status of UTEP basketball commit Anthony January as he has yet to sign a letter of intent with the Miners. It seems that while he is still committed to UTEP, for now, where he will ultimately land is still up in the air. After being out of basketball for a year while transferring and getting his academics in order, January is starting to come into his own. In his first few weeks with William Howard Taft High School January is averaging better than 19 points a game, and is beginning to draw interest from high major programs around the country. January's skills on the court had never been questioned, but his work ethic in the classroom was a completely different story. With those issues apparently cleared up though, the sky is the limit for the talented 6'6 SF/PF. As far as the idea of seeing him in El Paso next fall, I'd say that's slowly losing traction. According to the ESPN article, "January maintains his pledge to the Miners is intact. The plan, however, is to listen to what some of the nation's other schools have to offer, and make a decision at a later point." I have to say that I, as well as most Miners fans, hope that CTF can seal the deal with January, and add him to an already amazing 2012 class. But, whether or not Anthony January decides to stick with his commitment to the Miners, the program is in the right hands, and it will continue to head in the right direction.

Former Miner Adams Picked up by Vikes

The Minnesota Vikings have signed former UTEP WR Kris Adams to a "reserve/futures" contract for the 2012 season. Adams, whose name went uncalled in the 2011 NFL draft, spent some time on the Chicago Bears practice squad in 2011, but never made the active roster. Some feel that he may have a better shot of making that active roster with the Vikings in 2012.

ESPN Conference USA "Primer"

Here's a little preview of Conference USA by ESPN's Myron Medcalf. To be completely honest, I'm not exactly sure what I think of it. This guy also did the mid-major report, which C-USA, the A-10, and the MWC were not included in, and a lot of posters were pretty upset with his analysis there as well. Anyway, I'll let you all be the judge.
