Here's The List

With all due credit to "various and sundry" Internet sources, pretty much the entire Dartmouth recruiting class has been reported here previously.

Thanks to a sit-down with Coach Buddy Teevens, the official recruiting class (with short bios and coach comments) was posted at the end of spring football on BGA Premium.

Here then, is the official Dartmouth recruiting class with heights and weights adjusted to reflect what is on record in the football offices. (Expect those heights and weights to be adjusted once the players are on campus.)

The Dartmouth writes about the spring Green-White game HERE. One correction: While it was indeed a non-tackling scrimmage, the characterization as a "non-contact" affair is understating what went on. Rest assured, bodies were absolutely banging against each other. They just weren't getting thrown to the ground (except occasionally ;-).
The Sports Network ranks the Ivy League 10th of 13 FCS conferences, notably trailing the No. 8 Northeast Conference and the No. 9 Patriot League.

Looking ahead to 2015, TSN writes:
Harvard, the only unbeaten team in Division I last season, pumps out one excellent team after another. Dartmouth is capable of spoiling the Crimson's title bid this year and Yale, which beat Army last year after winning at Cal Poly in 2013, adds to the depth.
The New Haven Register's Portal 31 blog reports that Yale wide receiver and kick return specialist Chris Smith will try out with the New England Patriots this weekend.
