Locally here in the Bay Area, Cal is short 2 LB recruits, including one of the top national recruits Chris Martin whose announcement to transfer to Florida last week was confirmed by HC Tedford.

>> Wide receiver Ronald Carswell of Macon, Ga., also will be held back until January, even though he has qualified academically.
>> Blake Sims, signed as an athlete from Gainesville (Ga.) High School, and Deion Belue, a defensive back from Deshler High School in Tuscumbia, have not yet qualified academically. Saban said he expected to hear later Wednesday if one of the two had qualified.
Early Wednesday evening, Sims' father said there had been no word from the NCAA.
"Nothing's going on," Sonny Sims said. "We'll call the NCAA in the morning and see what the holdup is. Coach Saban and we are just waiting around."
Alabama signee Blake Sims has been cleared academically by the NCAA and will practice tonight with other Crimson Tide newcomers, according to his father.
Sims was signed as an "athlete" out of Gainesville (Ga.) High School, where he starred as a quarterback. At the time he signed, it sounded as if he would begin his college football career as a slot receiver, but his father, Sonny, said this afternoon that Blake will start off as a defensive back.
