Big man on campus

If you don't think the times have changed consider Mansfield junior defensive tackle Chris Davenport. He is receiving between 40 to 45 mail items daily from colleges around the country recruiting him.

There was a time when a 6-3, 320-pound defensive tackle at a Class 2A school in northwest Louisiana would have slid under the radar.

Not anymore.

His scholarship opportunities look like a who's who of college football -- LSU, USC, Oklahoma, Florida, Florida State, we could go on and on.

This is a good thing for the players. It's a good thing for the big schools. But not so much for smaller schools that could find the hidden gems and build around them.
