For elite recruits, commitments aren’t what they used to be

Ole Miss coaches should hope Holliman and Johnson treat other suitors the same way Miami Northwestern quarterback Teddy Bridgewater does. Bridgewater, who is committed to Miami, preaches the gospel of The U wherever he goes. He also doesn’t entertain many calls from other suitors. “I have a button on my phone that says Ignore,” Bridgewater said. “And I do use it.” When the Express visited Florida State on June 29, Bridgewater laughed when tour guides shooed Express players off the grass at Doak Campbell Stadium. “I’m going to tear up this field in a few years,” Bridgewater said.
