As NSD approaches, our sources feel fairly confident that the Tigers will once again be spurned in the battle for Foreman. Foreman will not publicly announce his decision until Jan 2, at the All-American Bowl. However, he is expected to sign with the school of his choice next Wednesday during the early signing period. Sources close to the situation have told us that while the Tigers did everything right in the recruitment, it appears it was not enough and they fully expect Foreman to sign with USC. This is not surprising, as Foreman hails from California. The Tigers certainly are not out of it, but it is our guess is that he stays in his home state and is a Trojan next year.
