Bruce Wood reports that the Great Ivy Football Transfer Parade of 2011 may not be over as UNH sophomore QB Alex Park may be on his way to Dartmouth in the coming weeks.
Park is a promising prospect at a position that remains the biggest question mark for the Big Green this coming season.
In other words, if he is a real deal, he could start.

Top 100 Moments of 2010
85: Ivery’s Big Run
Leon Ivery came to Columbia in 2007 after finishing an extremely impressive high school career in California’s Bay Area.
But he didn’t quite crack the BCS-level scouting lists because of bad bone spurs in his feet that developed in his senior year.
Instead, Ivery performed reliably for the Lions, especially his junior and senior seasons where he helped create a strong running attack by committee.
Ivery’s best single moment of 2010 came early in the second half of the 3rd quarter of week two as Columbia was clinging to a modest 7-3 lead over Towson.
The Lions had just forced the Tigers to punt after grabbing one first down on their first possession of the 2nd half.
On first down from the Columbia 35, Ivery burst through for a 38 yard run that jolted the crowd and the Towson defense.
That run would be the second longest from scrimmage all season long for the Lions.
Four plays later, Ivery scored on a five yard run and the Lions had a two score lead.
Leon finished the season with 345 yards rushing and four TD’s
One can only imagine how far Ivery could have gone at Columbia with just one more season on the varsity.
