Brown and Penn Classes Released
Let's all try to look afraid
Okay, they came out earlier this week, but we were focusing on our own class anyway.
The "experts" all say the Brown and Penn recruiting classes are the best ever. We should all just give up now.
The good news is that that these are the other schools, and we can be a little more free with our comments, (good and bad), about their recruits.
I've decided to lighten things up a bit.
Here are some random thoughts:
Nathan Bernstein OL 6'3" 270 Charlotte, NC
Are you kidding me? A 6-3 270-pound Jewish boy from North Carolina who plays football? Somebody tell me how we missed this kid! I think the challenge of taking classes at Brown while playing football are going to be a breeze for this kid after all that.
Paxti Colbern TE 6'5" 245 Anchorage, AK
Anyone want to tell me the last time we had an Alaskan kid play in the Ivies? Anyone?
Ibeabuchi Jeremiah Oteh DB 6'0" 185 St. Louis, MO
Comes from a great program with a good track record of sending stars to Brown in particular. Might get a chance early. I look forward to mispronouncing his name early and often in the broadcast booth.
Reed Watne DB 6'0" 195 Los Angeles, CA
Boy, there were a lot of defensive backs in this class. This guy may be the best of all of them. He could also be the guy from L.A. who freezes his butt off in Providence in November.
Joe Bonadies 6’5, 275 Leonia High School
Ranked as one of the top 12 high school centers in America. From Leonia? Really? Leonia is kind of a small town. I know it as that place that I get stuck in when I get lost getting to the George Washington Bridge. I also know it as the hometown of a lovely co-worker. She is very nice. Wait, what were we talking about again?
Brandon Colavita 5’9, 205 Washington Township High School
Comes from Ralph DeBenardo's high school... he looks good. Can we just start calling him "Rocky" right now? Please? (Hello, any old-time Detroit Tigers fans out there?).
QB Andrew Holland 6’1, 200 St. Ignatius High School
Super high school program. There are a lot of BACK-UPS from St. I. who have ended up playing impact roles on Ivy teams. This kid started. As an added bonus, he gets to get out of Cleveland for the next four years, (I get to make that joke because I used to live there too. Back off, LeBron).
LB Steve Lias 6’2, 230 Upper St. Clair High School
I think we're all supposed to be afraid of him. Let's refer to him as "He Who Shall not be Named!"
QB Billy Ragone 6’1, 190 Cheshire High School
Columbia was among a number of other schools hoping to get him. Solution: let's find some guy who looks A LOT like him and take that guy to the prom.
Have a great Memorial Day everyone!!!
