Choate tweeted the commitment of their lineman, Anthony Solano, back in July. IDK his current status, but it's worth looking into.

Good find Andy.
His HS congratulated him on the Fordham Commitment back in the spring.  I assume he's still on board.

Along with the hiring of the new coach, I hope the commitments stay committed.

As another poster mentioned,  lets hope these guys keep their Fordham commitment with the coaching change.  I think 1-2 more scholarship players will be added to the class.  Perhaps a handful of preferred walk-ons as well.

agreed, TD17.  I also hope we can land a transfer or two.  It would be nice if Coach M can start a new B10 pipeline for us, particularly with some OL/DL guys.

The Patriot League has a super strict walk-on rule.  They would not be eligible for any help and would need to pay 100% of the tuition which is around 67,500 per year.  Unless Diddy or Snoops kids want to walk on its very unlikely.

So you're saying that a walkon on academic scholarship would need to forfeit his scholarship to play football?
That might be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I don't buy that.

That's not an attack on you btw (feel like you need to be clear about that nowadays). I just can't believe thats true.

NO thats not what I'm saying at all.

a "preferred walk-on" -  the athlete is assured a spot on the team, but the coach is unable or unwilling to offer a scholarship.

In simpler terms,  Coach B says  Hey - we think you're a pretty good player (you pay your own way) and a we'll assure you a spot on the roster/team. 
and depending on performance perhaps the chance to win (of being rewarded) a scholarship in years 2,3,4.  For example All American LB Hodge was a walk-on.  Same as WR Cantelli last year a starter and solid player for us was as well.   

Every College team has a # of walk-ons and/or non scholarship players each year.  Otherwise we would only have 60 players (max scholarships allowed).  We (Fordham) have closer to 90 student athletes.

Just the Patriot League or the NCAA in general?

NCAA bylaws:

15.5.1.2 Football or Basketball, Varsity Competition. In football or basketball, a student-athlete who was recruited by the awarding institution and who receives institutional financial aid granted without regard in any degree to athletics ability does not have to be counted until the student-athlete engages in varsity intercollegiate competition (as opposed to freshman, B-team, subvarsity, intramural or club competition) in those sports. For this provision to be applicable, there shall be on file in the office of the athletics director certification by the faculty athletics representative, the admissions officer and the chair of the financial aid committee that the student’s admission and financial aid were granted without regard in any degree to athletics ability.

15.5.1.2.1 Exception—Receipt of Institutional Academic Aid Only. In football or basketball, a student-athlete who was recruited by the awarding institution and whose only source of institutional financial aid is academic aid based solely on the recipient’s academic record at the certifying institution, awarded independently of athletics interests and in amounts consistent with the pattern of all such awards made by the institution, may compete without counting in the institution’s financial aid team limits, provided he or she has completed at least one academic year of full-time enrollment at the certifying institution and has achieved a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.000 (on a 4.000 scale) at the certifying institution.

Not sure about the scenario that you mentioned with the academic ride but I referred a kid to Coach Joe and he txt'd me back saying what I wrote exactly.  I actually pulled up the txt to make sure verbiage was dead on. And yes it was the preferred walk-on comment.

If a scholarship opens up during the preferred walk-ons freshman year can he receive it?  Or must he wait until year two?

I know a kid who will be a freshman kicker for the Sooner next year as a preferred walk-on.  He had full rides all over but took OU because it was right in all other ways.  His dad told me OU brings in all their kickers this way to give them more flexibility on position players.

1. The walk-on rule is nonsense, like most PL rules.

2. No school charges $67,500 in tuition.

WalkOns
Agree rule us overly restrictive but it has been modified to allow. 3 WOs which dont count vs the roster or schollie count. These WOs can rceive aid that is available to the general student population. Not much but its something.

Not in tuition but in total costs:

Texasram34, in all fairness, DFW Hoya is correct in his statement that no college charges $67K for "tuition". Vassar, at 51.3K, may be the most for tuition and fee's. But again, he is correct that no college charges $67.5K for tuition alone.

McGriff flips - Dartmouth - twitter

Perhaps that opens up a scholarship for someone better than this Lineman.   If he's drawn to Dartmouth he might have great grades but lack upper ranking FCS chops.   For eastern talent we continue to look more attractive with each successful season.

HC Breiner also tweeted class 2016 +1  #Speed. #Speedkills.   I don't know if is translation is accurate but I'd guess it has to do with a recent (verbal commitment) recruit with wheels. I know we had 2 de-commits since Coach M left.  IMO it doesn't sting as much since the overall class is small (8-9).  I would think filling those slots with equally talented student athletes shouldn't be a problem.  In fact, maybe Coach B even preferred a few different players -than the verbals we had.   

I'm also curious who we added to the 2016 coaching staff with the opening provided by Coach M's departure.

I heard we lost a guy to the ILg and I guess the Govan kids equals two.  I also heard that the staff got permission to add another position.  I take that to mean if nothing else changes they'll be two new faces on the coaching staff
