Pittsburgh Newspaper Had It Right

As confidently predicted by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and reported on BGA Daily HERE, quarterback-turning-running back Ethan Maenza has made Dartmouth his college of choice.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound North Allegheny, Pa., standout posted his decision on Twitter this afternoon.

From the P-G story announcing Maenza as the 6A Player of the Year:
As a quarterback, he became only the sixth player in WPIAL history to run and throw for 1,000 yards in the regular season. He finished with 1,258 yards rushing on 156 carries and also completed 69 of 120 for 1,199 yards. 
Find his Hudl page with his senior year highlights HERE. Watch and you'll see why he's an exciting prospect at running back.

See more about him in this WesternPaFootball profile.

Once more with feeling, here's what we know (*=confirmed early decision) and what we think we know (mostly via Twitter) about the Dartmouth recruiting class. Keep those tips and links coming ;-)
