* — for DAILY updates between issues of the Sports Journal, check out PrepStars.com!!
+ — strong candidate for top-100 national ranking (Brick Oettinger/PrepStars.com)
# — number of 2002-03 grants available would be higher without NCAA's five/eight rule
@ — likely to use only two grants (of four available) on Class of 2003

NOTE: The NCAA returns to a modified five/eight rule with the Class of 2003, but only the "five" limit (and the 13-man roster maximum) applies this year. The "eight" has nothing to do with the number of players signed in 2001-02 and will not come into play until the Class of 2004.
