Gain a Verbal, Losing a Verbal, but Hill Will Stay!

Bullard tailback Kenny Hedrington has verbally committed to Fresno State. The 5-10 190 tailback makes a total of 15 verbals, but one is faltering. San Leandro receiver Jamal Hamler is wavering on his early oral commitment to the Bulldogs.

Hamler has given a solid verbal to Oregon according to Rivals.com. Can you blame the guy? You are a two star recruit, hardly noticed by any Pac 10 schools so you commit with your two high school teammates to the best school in the West (Fresno State) that is not in the Pac 10. Then after you have a decent senior year, Oregon comes calling and offers you a full-ride, what would you do? If you have integrity and stay true to your word, you would stay at Fresno State. But most 18 year-olds don't see it that way. They see the lightning yellow Duck uniforms, 56,000 seat Autzen Zoo, 6 plasma screen TVs in the locker room, and most importantly, the Pac 10.

However, there is some light at the end of the tunnel, Pat Hill is all but certain to announce that he will continue to be the head coach at Fresno State. A press conference is scheduled at 10 am tomorrow to announce his decision to stay a Bulldog, unless Al Davis comes calling in the wee hours of the night.
