The buzz on Costello is the following.
Stanford: The Cardinal have long been considered the favorites. Stanford has recruited him for a pretty long time, and Costello seemed sold for a big period of time. But there appear to be new programs entering the fray. Stanford still should feel like the team to beat, but there is definite competition.
Michigan: The Wolverines are the team that have leapt into the mix. Michigan was a recent addition into the top 3, meaning Jim Harbaugh is hard on the recruiting trail. The Stanford and Michigan ties have been heavy so far on the trail, so Harbaugh might be coming hard and selling the success of the Stanford connection.
USC: This might be one time the Trojans are not the favorites. Costello was down to USC and Stanford at one point, but it sounds like there's less buzz around the Trojans these days.
