Still One More

Thanks to someone who is watching Twitter like a hawk and sharing what turns up (thanks for that) we now know that 6-foot-1, 175-pound Jayden Minchew, who had 112 tackles, four sacks, four tackles for loss and four interceptions at Springdale High School in Springdale, Ark., is headed this way.

Find his Twitter feed HERE.

Find his highlights HERE and his MaxPreps page HERE.

Minchew becomes the second Arkansas player to commit to Dartmouth following Tanner Cross, a linebacker from Fort Smith, who Tweeted his congratulations.

You've seen this intro before but here's what we know (*=confirmed early decision) and what we think we know (mostly via Twitter) about the Dartmouth recruiting class. Thanks for the emails and tips and keep 'em coming ;-)
