"Transfers"

Just in case someone other than our usual dirty dozen checks in here, a word on transfers at Lafayette.

We accepted two kids this year from schools who had dropped their programs. (Northeastern, Hofstra)

We accepted one kid last year when Iona dropped theirs.

Prior to that, I believe one would have to go back to the 1980s to find our last transfer, when a few came over from Villanova after they dropped their program. Correct?  

We are not Transfer U, not Delaware and have trailed PL competitors markedly in the # of transfers.

We've had a few guys come from Army and Navy prep schools through the years.  Spencer Brown is a current senior LB who came from Navy Prep.  Adriel Lanier came from Air Force prep about 10 years ago.

We get some, but they are few and far between.

Yes, and Jeremy Burkes from military prep. I look at them, FT, like any other kid from a prep school.   Every PL member gets them and they're a way to get mature kids and cut into the red shirt advantage of other conferences.

My older brother transferred from Villanova back in 1991 to play OT for the Leopards. Went on to earn All PL in 1992.

Was that when Villanova dropped their program, Pard94?  Your brother was prob LC's last transfer, and again not "transfer" in the usual sense of a BCS kid looking for PT.

Nope...he had a lot of issues with the Nova program. He was just miserable there. Interesting to think that he was the last transfer until now.

Off the subject, I see that as part of Wagner's new look staff they've hired our former DB Marvin Clecidor as GA. He had been at Wilkes.  Good for him, just from seeing him interviewed after games he seemed very likeable, well spoken, with a great sense of humor. Lots of Frank's players joining the coaching ranks.
