Tidbit on Pat Simonds and another verbal

We already knew that Pat Simonds was coming, but here's a little bit more on Simonds, a 6-5 and 200 pounds receiver:

From the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin:

"(Colgate coaches) told me I'd be coming in as their No. 4 or No. 5 receiver, but that playing time will all depend on how much I work between now and then," Simonds said.

I can't say I disagree. Kenny Parker is #1, Eric Burke #2, David Morgan #3 and Garrin Rose #4. Depending on how quickly Simonds can get up to speed, I can see him becoming a nice fourth option as the year progresses, especially given his height. Since the graduation of Luke Graham, we've been missing a tall receiver. Of the four return receivers I just listed, Burke is the tallest at 6'0".

We've also got a verbal committment from Paul Mancuso, a 6'3" lineman from Trinity-Pawling near Poughkeepsie, NY. He comes from a winning program (9-0 last year) which is always a good thing in my book!


  • Simonds is also a big cog on the Sydney basketball team, has good hands and height, very agile. Looks like he def could be a 4th or 5th receiver to me.
