Nugget of The Day:
- Spoke with 2014 QB William Crest last night. Recently, he said that his top three schools are still WVU, Maryland and Ohio State. As of this moment, he's concentrating on his season and says he hasn't been talking with any of those schools much (or any school, for that matter). He says he will likely take in a game for all three teams this fall, but the only one he has set up right now is Ohio State vs. UAB (September 22).
