First verbal commitment for the class of 2017:

Otis Thrasher CB/S 6-3 175 Luella HS GA

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2934634/otis-thrasher

Otis is a HS senior, tweets a 2017 commitment, so presumably he will go the prep school route as did our 2016 Dmitry Smith. HS coach confirms commitment, does not mention class year.

Welcome Otis!

2017 around the league:

Darrington attended Junior Day at Rutgers and visited Syracuse, where he may attend a camp. He says he's open to all offers.
McCloskey is also a great BB player but appears to be set on football. The Inquirer says he is being recruited by Northwestern, Penn State (his father played there), BC and Duke.

Assume that's Mike McCloskey who was TE on the PSU 1982 Natl Championship team.

Darrington reports offers from Holy Cross, Lafayette, Harvard and Yale. He's a young man in a hurry who's getting attention from the big guys now.

Germantown  Academy's Kyle McCloskey, a Penn State legacy (his father, Mike, was a tight end and his sister, Megan, is on the track team), is worth watching.
Yes on the connection.

I understand we are interested in Joe Young from Bethlehem Freedom.  He plays QB for Freedom, but I believe we are interested in him as an "athlete" just like Jordan and Spinger form last year.

He is 6'3" and about 200 pounds, and a very good athlete.  I see no mention of offers thus far, but wouldn't surprise me if we hear something from him in the future.

Didn't he get injured last year and miss a few games?

I believe he did.  I am no insider, and this is hearsay, but I believe there is strong mutual interest.

Young suffered a season-ending hip injury in 2014 and last year missed time with a leg injury. These weren't chronic issues.
