HOT PROSPECTS: New coach Mark Richt has the Hurricanes in line for a top-20 class that ranks among the top four in the ACC. Irvin has a famous father (the former UM and NFL star) but isn't the most highly touted receiver in the group. Bruce is one of Rivals' top 50 prospects and scored the first touchdown in the Class 7A state championship. Byrd and Quarterman are also consensus top-100 recruits. Mullins had a highlight-reel, one-handed touchdown catch in this month's Under Armour All-America Game. That pass came from Allison, a four-star recruit who could battle for the starting quarterback job when incumbent Brad Kaaya leaves.

  3. Rays journal: Rookie Jacob Faria continues to show veteran poise

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The Orioles threatened in the first inning and the second. They loaded the bases with one out in the fifth inning with the top of the order up and seemed poised for a big inning. But those opportunities produced only one run because Rays rookie RHP Jacob Faria kept his composure and got the …
