More Recruiting Speculation

Given that one of the main priorities for Dartmouth next fall will be getting quarterback pressure off the ends it is informative that Las Vegas Sun has 6-foot-2, 230-pound defensive end Jake Smirk with offers from Dartmouth and Colorado State prior to the 2012 season. The Sun page also has a short video where you can learn a little more about him.

ESPN recruiting and Scout both list Dartmouth and Colorado State among Smirk's suitors while Yahoo tosses Cornell and Georgetown into the mix.
