Marinan not coming to Yale

Spoke with Xavier football coach Sean Marinan earlier today and he informed me that Yale has rescinded its offer to his son Sean, a Register All-State defensive lineman.

Sean Marinan admitted that he was uncertain where his son will end up going to college.

There is a similar situation playing out with Choate receiver Avery Lewis, who like Marinan recently visited Yale but left without the offer that he had under the former coaching staff.

Can only hope the last eight recruits are a clear improvement

Coach Reno has not honored the recruits from Coach Williams who were offered spots and who committed to Yale Football. He has informed them that he has withdrawn his support of their application as he wants to recruit his own players. He has broken Yale's verbal agreement with these students and has been given the ok to do so,... Shame on Yale!

I've reached out to some of the commit to confirm that they are committed to Yale. But if there are others on the list of commits I've been compiling that are no longer coming to Yale feel free to e-mail me at rather than putting it up as a comment here.

That is a wow! I guess my question is did any of these recruits who had their offers rescinded get likely letters in November or had their admission deferred?

Glad to see Coach Reno building his own class...but...once again the student pays the price. the NCAA always tells us that players can not leave when the coach moves on b/c "he committed to the school, not the coach", well, doesn't that mean the school, not the coach, committed to the player? Once again the NCAA double standard sticks the kids!

Shame on Yale is right! Who do they think they are playing with kid's lives. One of these kids signed/had likely letter last February, 2011, according to earlier blogs. These kids have been promised a spot and now that is taken away from them. These kids now have nowhere to go because it is too late! RENO NEEDS TO STEP UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING!

Not sure you have the full story. I do not believe that actual offers were pulled from prior administration. We were told all would be honored. Some great players may have been sure things if they got in a higher band. Not commenting on those two specifically, but don't jump to the conclusion that offers were dishonored.

By the same token I would think that some kids whom the previous staff thought would come to Yale changed their minds and/or were recruited away by other schools when Williams left and during the coaching search.

At this late point in the recruiting process, shouldn't the recruits all have either early action letters of admission or at least "likely" letters?

Let's remember we are talking about Williams, NOT Reno here. Williams made promises to TOO MANY people! Reality is, they aren't 1AA players! There were TOO MANY D3 players given verbal commitments!

Avery Lewis is definitely not a D3 player. He got injured at choate but was one of the best players in the league. I'm guessing if Williams over promised, it may have more to do with banding than quality.

The Ivy League is known across the country for dragging kids out to the very last minute and then dumping them. This is VERY common knowledge among folks who have had sons recruited by the Ivies.

If you know this going in then formulating a plan "B" is the prudent option, at all levels of recruiting. Most parents believe their son will be the "One" and when he is not they feel upset and betrayed when in reality they should have done their recruiting homework.

I have had three boys recruited at all levels of football and am starting a service that will educate new parents how football recruiting really works.
