The article presents information on developments related to college football in the U.S. All the momentum Karl Dorrell earned this season at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)--the 10 wins, the bowl victory, the surge in recruiting--has been tempered by the loss of running backs. Coach Dorrell, though, already is making a strong reactive move: trying to lure Ken Norton Jr., who was an All-American linebacker at UCLA, from rival University of Southern California. Alabama recently picked up a big recruit-one that will be more valuable than any high school signee--when RB Max Martin transferred from Michigan.
