Yale loses a recruit

Rivals.com is reporting that Chris Wade, a linebacker from Northshore High in Slidell, La., has committed to Miami (Ohio). Wade was one of the 11 players who were accepted early into Yale and until Miami got involved with him in the recent weeks, Wade was expected to be a cornerstone of Yale's incoming freshman class.

The Bulldogs coaches must be holding their breath as another talented linebacker - Brian Leffler out of the Hun School in Princeton, N.J. - is deciding whether to attend Yale or Stanford. Leffler was another early admit into Yale.

Former Brown coach Mark Whipple, probably best known in these parts as a highly-successful head coach at the University of New Haven, has been named the offensive coordinator at Miami - the one in Coral Gables, Fla. not the one in Oxford, Ohio.
