Our (VERY UNOFFICIAL) List So Far...

Before you read this list, I want to repeat my policy on listing verbally committed recruits. EVERYONE listed below has publicly said they are coming to Columbia in a local paper or other publication. All other leads, rumors, etc. are not put here or allowed in the comments section for many, many good reasons... one of which: the Athletic Department may kill me.

And as the title of this post clearly states, this is an UNOFFICIAL LIST, because you still can't believe what you read in the papers.

1. Sean Brackett, 6'1" - 195, quarterback, Griswold H.S., Jewett City, CT

2. Matt Bocci, 5'10" - 180, safety, Sacred Heart Prep, Atherton, CA

I don't think that Price Pinkerton weighs 275. Otherwise, great job, Jake, as usual.

Jake, here is another name for your very unofficial list--Matt Bocci of Sacred Heart. The San Franciso Chronicle and a few other California newspapers reported his signing with Columbia earlier this month. He was selected as his league's defensive back of the Year. Also compiled some very good stats at running back and wide receiver. He looks like another good addition to our new class.

Jake, the Salem, Mass. News published a great article last week on Columbia recruit, Andrew McHugh. He appears to be an outstanding young man who is a good fit for Columbia. Incidentally, the story says he 6'2", 235 lbs and likely to play fullback at Columbia, although the linebacking coaches would like him to play defense.
