This class is getting better and better each commit. Could end up being one of the best recruiting classes Yale has had in a while. Especially since the best players form this year’s incoming freshman class are headed to Choate to come in with next year’s class. Looks great for the future!

In reference to your question Walt Yale Blue, RB Andrew Grinde will not be here this year. He will be a senior this year and will be at Yale in the summer of 16’. His junior season film looks good and his numbers were great also. If you know football though you cannot get caught up in numbers too much because of the disparity of talent in many places. However there are some things that you must acknowledge. He had 2,180 and 20 TD’s on 328 carries in 13 games. That is a 6.7 yard/carry average, and a 167 yard/game average. These are both great averages for a junior, which are factual and cannot be denied. In addition to be voted the Gatorade player of the year in football in your state is a telling distinction also. This (at the very least) means that we have picked up (at least) one of the top 5 players in the state in all of Montana (because of course these accolades are somewhat subjective also). Both things are great for Yale football. We may be looking at someone who will be our 3rd option (or even higher) for Champion and Salters next year at RB.
