Just saw the Great Edinburgh XC where Phillip Rocha was the top American and 5th overall. It's interesting that he hasn't committed to a college yet. He's got to be one of the top unsigned recruits left in the US.

Cooper Teare? Robbie Santoyo?
Just looking at XC head-to-head with the guys listed, they at least deserve to be in the conversation.
