Highlighting the 2000 recruiting class were 24 scholarship athletes and nine walk-ons. The rookies and their parents went through an orientation session which included the taking of photos, physical exams, equipment fitting and meetings with the coaches and athletic department staff. The players will undergo two days of practices at Memorial Stadium Aug. 7-8 before the veterans report Wednesday, Aug. 11. Practice times are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
