TOP RECRUITS . . The Stanford football team evidently has landed Blake Lueders, one of the top prospects from the state of Indiana. He gave Stanford a verbal commitment Sunday. The defensive end/tight end from Zionsville High took his official visit the previous weekend. Lueders orginally committed to Notre Dame in June, but waivered because of the coaching change in South Bend. Randy Hart, who helped recruit Leuders as the Irish defensive line coach, recently was hired by Stanford for the same position and was apparently on campus when Leuders visited. Brian Polian, who was hired to replace the departed DJ Durkin as special teams coach, also coached at Notre Dame last year. Rivals.com suggested in September that Lueders, rated the fourth-best prospect from the state of Indiana, "is possibly the most underrated prospect in the entire nation." Lueders was named Indiana's Mr. Football as a senior. He had 93 tackles, three fumble recoveries and one interception despite missing a game due to surgery. The Stanford wrestling team, meanwhile, received a verbal commitment last week from Angus Galen McLeary, a 141-pound senior from Punahou High in Hawaii.
