Sunny Odogwu made a big impression on St. Frances' football team during the fall of 2011, but it was his first year of organized football and the Nigeria native needed a little more time to develop his skills before heading into a top-notch college program. After graduating from St. Frances, Odogwu spent last fall at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., honing his skills and drawing more and more attention from college coaches. At 6 feet 9, 315 pounds, the offensive tackle had more than 30 offers.

INDIANAPOLIS - Their first basket was a backdoor layup by Sydney Johnson with a little over a minute gone, the same play Pete Carril has been running at Princeton for 29 years, the play the Tigers used to shock defending champion UCLA in the opening round of the Southeast Regional at the RCA Dome. But it was to be Princeton's last basket for a while against Mississippi State nearly five minutes and the hole the Tigers dug for themselves proved to be a little too deep in a 63-41 rout by the Bulldogs.

The father of South Carroll graduate T.J. Swanson, The Sun's 2003 All-Metro Co-Offensive Player of the Year, said yesterday that his son will transfer from Mississippi State to Northern Colorado, where the quarterback will accept a full football scholarship. "T.J. ran the scout team at Mississippi State this fall and was named Player of the Week by [coach Sylvester] Croom, so they really like him, but they don't have any scholarships available," said Eric Swanson, adding that 1989 South Carroll graduate Warren Bell "was very instrumental" in contacting Northern Colorado.

Waiting two years for a shot at Division I basketball was something Davon Usher   had accepted over time. But the six extra weeks the former Digital Harbor star spent hoping for that elusive DI offer seemed nearly interminable. Usher, a 6-foot-6, 190-pound wing, had a solid junior college career at Polk State College in Winter Haven, Fla., averaging around nine points and seven rebounds for the Eagles as a sophomore. North Carolina Central, Western Illinois, San Jose State, Quinnipiac and North Carolina A&T were among the many DI programs interested in the former Rams standout, but reluctant to offer a scholarship.

Editor's note: This is the third in a series of profiles on Ravens draft picks whose first months as professionals have been disrupted by the NFL lockout. Coming next Sunday, Tyrod Taylor. When Pernell McPhee arrived on campus at Itawamba Community College in Fulton, Miss., in the summer of 2007, the 6-foot-3 defensive end tipped the scales at just 218 pounds.

It's hard to imagine a 6-foot-8, 255-pound athlete disappearing. But for almost three long years, that's what happened to Wayne Dorsey, a former Southwestern football and basketball star. While former Amateur Athletic Union basketball teammates Malcolm Delaney ( Virginia Tech) and Sean Mosley (Maryland) found stardom in college, Dorsey's journey from West Baltimore took him to New York for a season of prep school football and to Mississippi for two years of junior college. "The road that he took was just so long and so frustrating for him," said Vernon Joines, Dorsey's football coach at Southwestern.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The ball left his hands, spinning flawlessly toward the hoop from three feet beyond half court. This wasn't a prayer. And it wasn't luck. As Xavier guard Dedrick Finn's last-second shot slid through the net to end the first half of yesterday's 89-74 win against second-seeded Mississippi State, the truth behind the Musketeers' recent success became far easier to understand. This is no longer simply good fortune. This is skill. "That shot was going in," Bulldogs coach Rick Stansbury said.
