Witt gets thumbs up from Rhodes panel

Yale senior quarterback Patrick Witt received the endorsement from Yale's three-professor panel to continue his pursuit of a Rhodes Scholarship as well as a Mitchell Scholarship.

Witt, a history major with a 3.91 grade-point average, had an interview with the panel earlier this month and found out on Monday that he was among the candidates given the OK to move to the next step of the process of being a Rhodes Scholar.

Witt will be a candidate in Georgia and is the first Yale football player to get this far in the process since Casey Gerald in 2009. Here's video of Witt talking about the process
