Heard we already have six commitments.  1standgoal, we have our work cut out for us in trying to determine who are the other two recruits.   Wink


So it sounds like Masella's firing has not affected the plans of our committed recruits that we already knew about.

From today's Buffalo News:


The 2011 collection of All-WNY talent is one of the best ever, especially on an offense filled with Division I recruits, state champions, head-shaking statistics and nightmares for defensive coordinators.

Ladies and gentlemen, we now introduce you to the most powerful offense in the history of the All-Western New York football team.
 
That's a major claim, but these players have major game.

....Fordham-bound Ben Johnson, he of the 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame, the uncannily keen adjustments to the ball, the 11 touchdowns and numerous big plays, particularly in the postseason.

You make it sound like that's a good thing.  I hope whoever is hired takes a long look at whoever Masella has been recruiting.  There is a reason we were 1-10.

1standgoal, I'm told a former soldier from Texas will be enrolling in Fordham in January.  He may be one of the two "unknown" committed recruits.  Right now, he's working hard to get in shape and will be joining the team next semester.  I know his name but I'm reluctant to post it because I can't find anything on his commitment on the net.  If you want, I can PM it to you.

I've also heard that the above recruit let Coach Masella know about several high school prospects from Texas who'd love to play for Fordham (Skelton factor?), but Masella never followed up on them, which leads me to believe he knew long ago that he'd be relieved of his duties as coach.

Sure do that... If Masella did that you are right he probably wanted to keep those kids close to recruit them at his next stop. Another former soldier.. interesting.

WGRZ Interview with Ben Johnson

The comments in regard to "major in Radiology".  The interview question was "what do you plan to major in at Fordahm?".  Answer from Johnson was: "I will major in Biology" working toward a career as a Radiologist.

Or maybe he saw film on them and decided they couldn't play on this level.  Just because a kid is recommended, even from Texas, doesn't mean he's a scholarship level player

Ben Johnson looks like a heck of a receiver.  Those western NY kids are tough players. Any idea who else was recruiting him?

Ben Johnson has been recruited so far by:  Duke, Penn State, Syracuse, Buffalo, Colgate, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, IU and the Ivey's.  Talking to his coach he wants to go to college in NYC and Fordham fits the profile for him.  I'm taking a guess that Penn State is no longer a consideration... Evil    My understanding is that UConn visited him at his high school, interesting.  Johnson seems to be one of those rare football players that cares about his education!

Getting to know more about Fordham Football can anyone tell me why Fordham does not promote the fact that Vince Lombardi played football at Fordham.  I would think that this would help with a stronger recruiting class.  It's a big deal to young football players and not many away from Fordham are aware of this fact.  Class of 1937?

Andrew Erenberg made AAAA all-state Penn. "Erenberg will play for Fordham, a member of the Football Championship Subdivision, and was recruited as a running back.
"He's one of the best players I've coached in 21 years. He meant the world to us," Piccinini said. "The coaches knew and the players knew that he was our go-to guy."
Erenberg made the Class AAAA team as a defenseive back. He made several plays at safety during his senior season but left his mark on offense. He rushed for 1,343 yards and scored 18 touchdowns.
"We lined him up in the Wildcat. We ran trick plays for him. He threw the ball, ran the ball and caught the ball," Piccinini said. "He made the whole show go."

Coach Rodriguez?



From Rivals (1/11/12):


Fresh off four seasons of high school football at New Jersey's Jesuit high school, Jared Crayton will head across the George Washington Bridge to continue his gridiron career at another Jesuit institution.

Crayton, who was St. Peter's Prep's top rusher this fall, has committed to Fordham University, choosing the Rams over UMass, Towson, Delaware State and Wagner.

"It's a great school and a great opportunity for me," Crayton said. "It's a good fit: out of state but not too far from home but I think I can get playing time early."

Crayton revealed that it took a conversation with his head coach, Rich Hansen, to ultimately sway him in Fordham's direction.

"Coach Hansen spoke to me about it, telling me how I was No.1 on their board," he said. "There were other schools that had me No.1 also, but what made me commit was how great of an opportunity I'd have (at Fordham). Now I have to make the most of it."

After running for 13 scores and catching three others this fall, Crayton piqued the interest of the Rams' coaching staff with his improved athleticism.

"The coaches are really excited I'm going there. They are impressed with my increase in speed from junior to senior year," Crayton said. "They think I read the holes pretty well. Coach Rodriguez, the offensive line coach, he likes what I do and says it works well with their offense."

Jersey City's Jared Crayton of St. Peter's Prep commits to Fordham University

Quote
Jared Crayton of St. Peter's Prep, left, goes head-to-head with Union City's Steve Le during a game this season.
St. Peter's Prep football coach Rich Hansen has announced that senior running back Jared Crayton has committed to Fordham University, where he will play football next year on a scholarship.

Crayton, a bruising 5-foot-10, 190-pound runner from Jersey City, gained 986 yards on the ground and scored a total of 16 touchdowns for the Marauders (7-4) this season.

Hansen said that Crayton had scholarship offers from Ohio University, Maine, Northern Michigan and Delaware State but settled on Fordham for its proximity to home and newly-hired head coach Joe Moorhead.

"The thing that separates him is that he's a legitimate tough kid," Hansen said of Crayton, who backed up former Prep running back Savon Huggins for two years. "I think that's an attribute that you have to have to play college football. You have to know how to play hurt, how to paly under duress.

Fordham, which competes in the Patriot League of the Football Championship Subdivision (D1-AA), went 1-10 last season.

The rivals article says he had offers from UMass, Towson, Delaware State and Wagner....the nj.com article says he had offers from...Ohio University, Maine, Northern Michigan and Delaware State.  That is interesting.

Just got a tweet from the Star-Ledger.  They're working on a story on Crayton's verbal.  "Story coming soon" is what they're saying...


Here it is...



From the Star-Ledger (9:23pm tonight):


Running back Jared Crayton of St. Peter’s Prep verbally committed to Fordham University on Wednesday, said his coach, Rich Hansen.

Crayton (6-0, 195 pounds) rushed for 1,012 yards and scored 20 touchdowns last season, when he was named First Team All-Hudson County by The Star-Ledger and was voted Hudson County Offensive Player of the Year by the Hudson County Coaches Association.

Crayton also received offers from Maine, Delaware State, Ohio and Northern Michigan and was invited to Rutgers with a chance to earn a scholarship with a late enrollment. He cannot sign a letter of intent until Feb. 1.

“I think Fordham is getting, No. 1, an extremely tough kid physically and mentally,” Hansen said. “He runs hard and is explosive. Most importantly, he is a tremendous competitor.”
