Hernia surgery could sideline FSU’s Darby for spring

Former H.S. All-American Alford enrolls at Ole Miss

Anthony Alford's first year on campus didn't work out as planned, but he didn't have to go very far for a second chance: As expected, Ole Miss confirmed Alford's enrollment on Tuesday, a little more than a month after the former blue chip's departure from an in-state neighbor, Southern Miss.

Quotable:

"Pruitt is a known commodity in Alabama and the South," Langston said. "Sunseri is more in the Virginia area and the Northeast, Kelly is really great in Atlanta, Sanders did some of his best work in Georgia and Napier was fantastic in the Carolinas, and that is a place where Florida State really has had a tough time getting a strong foothold.

"I think pairing Sunseri and [defensive tackles coach Odell] Hagans in the Baltimore-D.C.-Virginia area will pick up a spot that Florida State is already strong in, and then with Kelly and Sanders covering Georgia, that beefs up a backyard area that the program has not been faring well in recently."

Napier may be the most important hire -- and he has big shoes to fill following Craig's departure.

"Craig was a home run hire for Auburn and a major loss for Florida State, with Gran being a close second because he had been doing a great job in recruiting," said Rivals' national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell. "Napier will have to fill that role, and I think he can."
