Some thoughts while driving through Florida and Georgia and meeting with dozens of blue-chip prospects from the class of 2009:
* The story on the class of 2008 isn't complete until quarterback Terrelle Pryor of Jeannette, Pa., makes his commitment. The top-rated player in the nation is taking his time. He attended a basketball game at Ohio State last weekend. In my view, he will choose Ohio State but he still hasn't made official visits to Penn State and Oregon and won't make a decision until he does.
* Quarterback Matt Barkley of Los Angeles is the No. 1 player in the junior class but Aaron Murray of Tampa, Fla., could rival him.
