The article mentions Varina High receiver Bobby Smith.

In their October 15, 2008 edition, the 'Richmond Times-Dispatch' wrote that: "For what (his high school coach)
Brown termed "academic-discipline problems,"
Smith missed his sophomore football and junior basketball seasons.
For a spell last spring, he was suspended from football training."

Is this a sign that Al Groh is having a difficult time recruiting?

Your writer says: " The late addition of unheralded 6-foot-6 wide receiver Bobby Smith
from Varina High in Richmond could turn out to be a brilliant pickup."

It's hard for a reader to know what to make of this.

Star power? By not mentioning Tim Smith at all, you show some ignorance. This dynamic, highly skilled wide receiver from Oscar Smith (committed to UVA) is the real deal. His impact will be immediate and will pale that of any recruit, even David Wilson, who will not yet surpass several other young Tech running backs on their depth chart.

After this column was written, OT Moses committed to UVA. He's considered by some to be in the top five nationally at his position. Perhaps his addition tips the scales in favor of the Cavs this year.
