Every Monday, our weekly Recruiting Review recaps the past week's top headlines from our sister blog, Bryan Fischer's Eye on Recruiting . Enjoy:
  • A couple of high-profile teams snagged their first commitments for 2012 last week, both looking west to California. Notre Dame secured a pledge from Fresno cornerback Tee Shepard, who boasted 27 offers from a who's who of schools around the country. A little closer to the coast, Boise State has a rare early commitment in the person of Elk Grove cornerback Marcus Rios. But Rios's coach says the commitment won't keep some higher-profile Pac-12 schools from coming after him later in the year.
  • Just days later, the Irish got their second commitment , Vandalia (Ohio) tackle Taylor Decker. Decker made his decision just a week after receiving his offer, saying "It's just where I wanted to go."
  • Lorenzo Mauldin, his options narrowed after South Carolina oversigned and asked him to grayshirt, could wind up at Louisville whether he qualifies as part of the 2011 class or not.
