Columbia is in the running to land 6-foot-6, 336-pound Jared Duke of Walker Valley High in Charleston, Tennessee.
Duke tells Scout.com that Columbia has come closer to giving him a formal offer than any other team.
On another front, word has finally leaked out that Stanford safety Fred Craig, a truly fast and talented player from Cincinnati's St. Xavier High School, will be transferring to Penn. He'll be eligible to play right away and will probably shift to outside linebacker where he'll make more of an impact. Penn's stock has surely risen on this news.
At first, I thought about what this says about former Stanford assistant and new Yale Head Coach Tom Williams. But then an astute reader reminded all of us that Williams hasn't been at Stanford for awhile; he's coming to Yale directly from the Jacksonville Jaguars. But in my defense, all the headlines out of Yale about Williams really emphasize his years at Stanford... almost as if they were embarrassed by his NFL connections. But that's an oversight on my part and I'm going to fire some of my highly-paid research staff because of it.
