This is the time of year where we always see coaching changes begin to affect certain school's…
Programs Pursuing A&M Commit
"With Coach (Mike) Sherman getting fired, I want to see what (Texas A&M) is going to do," said Darion Monroe. "I'm still committed to A&M and that's where my heart is, but at the same time I'm open to other schools that want to call." It didn't take long after Sherman's departure for a host of programs to make a move on Monroe, the nation's 24th-ranked cornerback. "Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech started first, then Miami and Oregon," said Monroe. "Vanderbilt came by the house last week. I'm taking an official visit to Georgia Tech this weekend with my mom and dad. They want me to play quarterback and run the option, which would be good. "I'd also like to visit Pittsburgh. I talked to them two or three weeks ago. I want to visit A&M when they find a coach." Monroe is also contemplating visits to Miami and Oregon. "I talked to a graduate assistant from Miami and they want me to get my transcripts and updated film of me playing corner," he said. "I haven't really talked to Oregon, but I heard their coach called the school. I'm supposed to talk with them later this week." Monroe is in action on the hardwood tonight for East St. John's basketball team, which entertains McDonogh #35. The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder is a lightning fast point guard for the Wildcats. Monroe played both sides of the football (QB and CB) for East St. John, which is a perennial hotbed of gridiron talent.
