Wow Jimbo, Bedell was one of Villanova's top recruiting targets.  Below is a snippet from today's Newsday.  (Sorry, I'm not a Newsday subscriber, so I can't access the rest of the piece.)

Stacey Bedell, the elusive running back for Floyd, has changed directions regarding his college choice.
Bedell, who committed to Division I-FCS Villanova in July after surprising Wildcats coaches by running the 40 in 4.48 despite a sprained ankle, de-committed over Labor Day weekend.
"My dad made the call for me," Bedell said before practice Tuesday. "They were pretty upset. But I just...

Well, I hope he reconsiders Fordham's offer, but it'll be tough to compete with JMU's facilities (see pic below).

From today's New York Post:


Beach Channel is most people’s Bowl favorite after going 9-1 and losing in last year’s final to Truman.
 
The Dolphins aren’t going to be nearly as big as they were last season, either, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t be up there among the best teams in the division again.
 
“This is probably the fastest team that I’ve coached in all the years that I’ve coached,” [Coach Victor] Nazario said. “What we lack in size, we’re gonna make up for with speed and toughness.”

The team will be led by two-way sophomore star Diequan Underwood, Nazario’s Mr. Everything on offense and a cornerback on defense, and 6-foot-3 split end Henry Adegunle, who has interest from UConn, Syracuse and Fordham.

RamMan.....how in the world do you catch all these articles? 

Well, I check the three major New York newspapers almost every morning by typing the key word "Fordham" in the search box on the newspaper's home page.   That's how I found today's piece in the New York Post.  I wish I could take credit for most of the rest of the stuff I post, but the truth is, a lot of it is forwarded to me via e-mail, social media, text, etc.  Any info with a link, I post here.  If there's no link but my source is a reliable one, I'll post it (e.g., Maetzold being named starter for the UConn game).  If there's no link and my source is sketchy, I won't post it (e.g., I heard we're recruiting a teammate of one of the kids mentioned in this thread, but I haven't yet posted about him because my source isn't solid enough).


Clearly he must work at all these outlets. Wink

LOL...   Grin



Good stuff.  I like the kids we're recruiting.  Without scholarships, we'd have a no shot in hell of landing any of them.

Fordham Commit 2012 - halfback and linebacker David Barletta 6ft 5in 205lbs


Kudos to the staff on our first known verbal commitment for 2012.  Perhaps ace should start a new thread titled "Tracking Our Signed/Committed Recruits," like they have on the basketball message board, and move your post there.



From the Patch piece:


. . . senior left halfback and linebacker David Barletta, a returning starter on both sides of the ball. . . has given Fordham a verbal commitment for football.

Barletta said that Fordham was a perfect fit for him and also acknowledged that Vince Lombardi played there.

“I was very excited when I talked to the coaches, it’s close to home and a great school,” Barletta said.

Barletta and fellow senior Robbie Fay served as captains at New Providence’s game-scrimmage last Friday night . . .

Below is a piece on Khalif Herbin.  I doubt we have a chance at landing him as Buffalo, JMU, and Delaware are high on his list.


From today's Record:


Notoriety came quite rapidly last fall when Montclair High's exciting 5-foot-7, 165-pound quarterback-slot back exploded on the scene as one of the Super Essex Conference's breakout stars, electrifying crowds and mortifying opposing coaches with his ability to escape would-be tacklers on the way to darting back and forth and ultimately forward for seemingly endless long gainers at any time and at any spot on the field.

He eclipsed 170 yards rushing in four different games and finished with 1,480 yards and 15 touchdowns rushing for 2010, plus he added 12 pass receptions which resulted in four more TDs, while also taking back two kickoffs for scores and returning a punt for yet another TD.

There were such memorable outings as in the 38-28 North 1, Group 4 playoff win over Ridgewood when he amassed 455 total yards, including 266 rushing.

. . . the still burgeoning star who runs a 4.43 in the 40-yard dash . . . is certainly not yet a finished product meaning more colleges are almost certain to become involved in pursuing him in the coming weeks and months . . .

Already he is very much on the wish list for I-AA colleges including Fordham, Wagner, James Madison University and Delaware, while I-A programs from the University of Buffalo and Akron have been expressing their strong interest as well.

According to Patch.com, Fordham has "shown interest" in former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rich Erenberg's son Andrew, who plays both running back and safety for Peters Township High School in Peters Township, PA (see below).



From Patch.com (9/9/11):


Andrew has already received Division 1 and Division 1-AA offers to play in college. Schools such as Kent State, Fordham University and Duquesne University have shown interest in him.

. . . Andrew will be touring these, and other, colleges over the next few months to gather information to help him decide which school is best for him, with his academic interests ahead of his athletic ones.

Placing education before athletics is something Andrew’s father did.  . . . Rich had entertained several significant Division 1 offers back in his day, but chose to attend Colgate . . ., which didn’t give out any athletic money at the time. He chose Colgate . . . because he was interested in the academic programs offered there.

From today's Union Leader:


Minutes after the score went final Friday night at Gill Stadium, Salem head football coach Jack Gati answered my first question with a query of his own.

Asked for his thoughts on the six-touchdown game by Jerickson Fedrick — the coveted college prospect who led Salem to a 50-28 Division I win at Manchester Central — Gati said, “What do you think?”

Here's what I think: Four rushing touchdowns, including a 71-yarder on his first offensive touch, two kick-return scores in which the shortest was a 98-yarder, and 37 receiving yards qualifies as spectacular.

But it wasn't his best outing.

And that speaks volumes about the 5-foot 10-inch, 195-pound senior's talent, who gained 141 rushing yards on 19 carries.

Fedrick was most fearsome in a Week 7 game against Nashua North as a sophomore. He terrorized the Titans for 220 yards and four TDs on 15 attempts.

Gati said Boston College, Fordham, Maine and Rhode Island are among the programs taking notice.

From today's Times Union:


Albany Academy senior quarterback Hunter McCarthy endured losing the vast majority of his 2010 football season . . . after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a Week 3 game . . .
 
After an exhaustive rehabilitation process and a sparkling 2011 debut performance against Broadalbin-Perth Sept. 3, McCarthy once again faces the prospects of a lengthy rehab process after an MRI exam Wednesday revealed he has a torn ACL and a torn meniscus to the same . . . knee . . .
 
McCarthy threw for 258 yards and four touchdowns against Broadalbin-Perth in the Cadets’ 42-25 victory, but re-injured his knee during the fourth quarter.

McCarthy will talk with his doctors and at least explore rehabbing without having surgery in the hopes of returning to the field.
 
McCarthy has drawn interest from several colleges . . ., including two schools the senior was extremely interested in — Fordham and Holy Cross.

Not a physician, much less an orthopedic surgeon, but I don't think you can just rehab torn ACL's.

Too bad for this kid; sounds like he's tough as well as talented. With his history he would probably be well advised to forego football for now and get the knee fixed as best as that can be done.

From today's News-Herald:


Mentor senior linebacker Kurt Laseak has accomplished a goal he set for himself a long time ago.

Laseak will be a Division I college football player.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Northeast Lakes District selection is headed to the Mid-American Conference, as Laseak has made a verbal commitment to play at Ohio University.

Laseak also received interest from Kent State, Buffalo, Syracuse, Northwestern and Fordham.

From BucksLocalNews.com (7/15/11):


NH-S senior tailback Julian Kaminoff, who reportedly has received scholarship offers from Division I-A Buffalo and Division I-AA Fordham, raced for touchdowns of 3, 31 and 27 yards to put the Lions on top, 22-0, in the third quarter.

Kaminoff also rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown in New Hope's season-opening win over George School on Sept. 3 in Newtown.

More on Fedrick from ESPN.com (9/15/11):


Salem High's Fedrick . . . made the heads of opposing mentors spin in Week 2, which kicked off NHIAA Division I play.
 
. . . Fedrick [is] widely considered the state's most coveted college prospect. The 5-foot 10-inch, 195-pound senior, a tremendous blend of speed and power, scored six touchdowns in Salem's 50-28 Sept. 9 win at Manchester Central High.
 
Salem head coach Jacki Gati said Fedrick is garnering interest from Boston College as well FCS programs Fordham, Maine and Rhode Island. The star's statistics against Central explain why college coaches are keeping tabs.
 
Fedrick, on 19 carries, ran for 141 yards and four TDs (his rushing total took a hit when he unselfishly fell on Salem's third-quarter fumble 20 yards behind the line of scrimmage). He also recorded run-oriented Salem's three receptions for 37 yards.
 
Yet he was best on special teams. Fedrick broke free for two first-half touchdowns – of the 98- and 99-yard variety – before halftime.
 
“I just want to keep moving on the field,” Fedrick told New Hampshire GameDay. “Just don't stop, basically.”
