A Pair of Peaches & A Late Add from PA!
Chris Mooney, a highly-rated tight end from Marietta, Georgia's Walton High school has chosen Columbia.
Mooney has this to say about CU:
"They haven't won an Ivy championship since 1960, but they are getting better and better, and these next four years are going to be great."
We couldn't agree more Chris, but please, it was 1961 when we won our last title! We've been waiting long enough as it is!
Also from the Marietta area and coming to Columbia is Marcorus Garrett. Garrett says he committed to CU back in November. You can see his highlight video here.
I know I'm going to regret this, because I'm bound to get lots more names before the end of the day, but here's our "commit" list so far:
Joe Raimondi signs on the dotted line
Of course, I do have to add another name now. Joe Raimondi, a Valley News 1st Team OL AND 1st Team DL from from Hampton High School in the Pittsburgh area has committed to Columbia. Raimondi suffered an ACL injury at the end of the football season, but still may be able to compete as a wrestler this year for his high school.
