Big East Football Recruiting Update

Instead of overloading readers with individual posts on every single commitment, here's your Big East football recruiting update with the details on the latest pickups from around the league:

Cincinnati None since June 21. Thirteen commits in the 2012 recruiting class.

Connecticut hauled in three commits on Thursday: Defensive end Brendan Battles, running back Montrell Dobbs and defensive back Chauncey Lanier. Lanier was also pursued by Wisconsin, North Carolina, Central Florida and Mississippi. With the addition of these three guys, the Huskies are up to 12 commits for 2012.

Louisville landed a huge punter/kicker in Joshua Appleby. Appleby goes 6-3, 230 lbs. He is the Cardinals eighth 2012 commitment. Appleby picked Louisville over Alabama, Kentucky and Texas. He picked Louisville "where he was really wanted" over Alabama which was "kind of so-so."

Pittsburgh picked up Johnstown, PA three-star linebacker Alkwan Williams. Williams (6-0, 225) picked the Panthers over Kent State, Toledo and Temple. Williams is Pitt's sixth 2012 commitment.

Rutgers landed two New Jersey players recently: Three-star defense end Julian Pinnix-Odrick from Montclair High School and four-star athlete Davon Jacobs from DePaul Catholic. Rutgers now has eight players in the 2012 class.

South Florida also picked up four players over the past week: defensive back Chris Bivins, defensive end Daniel Perry, tight end Sean Price and athlete Lamarlin Wiggins. Voodoo Five is our South Florida blog to keep track of for more information on these latest Bulls recruits in the now eight strong class of 2012.

Syracuse got four commitments: athlete Devante McFarland, linebacker James Washington, offensive lineman Kyle Knapp and Marcus Coleman. Make sure you visit TNIAAM for information on Doug Marrone's 2012 recruiting class which is now at nine players.

TCU None since June 22. Thirteen commits in the class of 2012.

West Virginia continued to put together a strong 2012 class by getting wide receiver Deontay McManus and defensive back DaQuan Davis this past week. The Mountaineers 2012 class now has 10 commitments. One of those, Joseph Jackson, is still considering his options despite his commitment.
