Ontko, quoted in the story:
“Before the injury I had a lot of schools interested and they dropped out. It’s been great motivation. I just took it in stride and I’m really excited at the prospect of getting to prove myself all over again. It was tough, what happened, but it’s a business and I know it takes a lot to perform at the next level.”The story says his rehab is ahead of schedule and he's expecting to be ready for next season. Ontko is listed as a safety by one recruiting site but can also play running back.
Columbia recruit Surges is a linebacker.
