A little recruiting talk

I've been getting some questions about recruits and a request to post names with heights and weights.

My initial plan was to do this when I heard back from the coach of Caleb Gilligan-Evans to see if he would be a part of Yale's incoming freshman class. However, I am not gotten anything new on Gilligan-Evans to report.

I did hear back from Choate coach Erik Cooper last week who confirmed that receiver Avery Lewis is headed to Yale. Lewis, who was originally a part of last year's Yale recruiting class before opting to take a post graduate year at Choate, will add some size at receiver.

I do not have Gilligan-Evans, Christian Conway or his twin brother Jackson Conway on this list. That doesn't mean they won't end up at Yale but until I get confirmation that they are definitely coming I just don't think it is appropriate to include them. I expect there to be some other names on the final list when Yale makes the recruiting class official.

Two observations about the list. We need more QBs. Why hasn't BD sired a worthy successor? Second, what about those necessary evils who apply their feet to the pigskin?
Another thing: the words we must type to prove we're not robots are becoming increasingly indecipherable. They're ink blots. Now please charge my batteries

I don't consider that to be a completed list. It is possible that they add a QB or K but they will have four QBs, two kickers and three punters even if they don't add anybody else to the class.

As for the ink blots, that is out of my hands. I would send an e-mail to the sports editor Sean Barker at sbarker@nhregister.com to see if he can help in this matter.

I had a blog post about a month ago with the Choate head coach said Porter was "more focused on Patriot League and Division 3 options at present."

True Blue '5: Good grief, why hasn't BD sired a worthy successor? Oh, I see now -- you're saying Dowling himself should have produced an offspring to be Yale QB. Dowling was unique, a one-of-a-kind winner, but I must point out Yale has had a number of standouts since BD including Kelly Ryan, Joe Walland, Darin Kehler and Alvin Cowan to name a few. Joe Rogan and Mike Curtin weren't bad either!

Really excited about Avery Lewis. He could bring another legitimate outside threat to the passing game along with Chris Smith. As good as some of the receivers we have (Liguori, Sandquist, Randall) are, they are fairly undersized. What do you think?
