Rice Lands QB By Sending Recruiting Letter To His Cat

Quarterback J.T. Granato committed to Rice yesterday, his decision perhaps helped by a letter from the Owls' offensive coordinator to his cat, Kitty:

"As you know we're trying to convince J.T. Rice is the place for him. I know you'd like to keep him close so he can feed you and change the litter box. Please help us to get him to choose us. Paw me if you have any questions."

For Granato's services, Rice beat out Auburn, who offered impermissible Petco gift cards, and Tennessee, who just shipped a crateful of lady cats in heat.
