Four on Friday...

Memphis basketball star Joey Dorsey signed and returned a pair of index cards care of the UM athletic department in exactly one month. Last year's Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year will be a senior for the Tigers this winter and is touted as one of the country's top rebounders and shot blockers. In addition, Dorsey also shoots better than 60% from the floor.

Fellow big man Richard Hendrix of Alabama also signed a pair of index cards. The success, care of the UA athletic department, took just 30 days. Hendrix, who will be a junior for the Crimson Tide this season, averaged nearly 15 points and nine rebounds per game last year.

Also signing was Arkansas State's Adrian Banks. That request, sent care of the ASU athletic department, took just two weeks. Banks, who will be a senior for the Indians this season and has recently been named an honorable mention All-American, averaged over 21 points per game last year while shooting better than 47% from 3-point range. (As you can see, this one lost a bit of fight with the post office mail machine.)

Wrapping up the week was former Louisiana-Lafayette catcher Jonathan Lucroy. That request, sent care of his minor league team, the Helena Brewers, was returned in just under 100 days. Lucroy, a former Freshman All-American and All-Sun Belt selection, was selected with the 101st overall pick of the MLB Draft this past summer and hit an impressive .342 in more than 60 games with his minor league squad this summer.
