Early enrollees savor moments

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- At this point, most high school students are looking forward to the thrill of a holiday break and the relaxation that comes with it.

Because when their fellow commits sign their letters of intent on Feb. 6, the early enrollees will already be a month into their college classes, weightlifting and conditioning in Ann Arbor.
