thats nothing...maryland had steve slaton inked and pulled his scholarship...

He visited Maryland as a junior, mulled over other schools -- including West Virginia -- and jumped when the Terrapins' staff offered a scholarship.

"I committed; I was already there," Slaton recalled. "Upcoming program. They were pretty close to home. I liked my family coming to games, and that was a pretty big reason to go there."

In October 2004, a reporter called the Slaton household. He was the one who informed the Conwell-Egan kid that Maryland rescinded its scholarship offer. The turtle knick-knacks? "They're gone," Slaton said.
i guess being from PA...penn state missed out as well
