Catching Up With Nonconference Recruits

Following up on last week's list of Ivy League recruiting classes (sans Yale), here are the classes that are joining Dartmouth's nonconference opponents this fall:

Stetson will try to improve on last year's 4-7 overall record and 2-6 Pioneer Football League record with a whopping class of 40. The only crossover with Dartmouth is the class features two teammates of incoming Dartmouth defensive end Seth Walter at Manatee High School in Bradenton, Fla.  (LINK)

Holy Cross, which also comes in off a 4-7 record and a 2-4 Patriot League mark, has a smaller class of just 20, a result of the PL's move to scholarships. Not surprisingly, Holy Cross tapped into Ivy League feeder programs Hinsdale Central (Illinois), Loyola Academy (Illinois) and Marietta High School (Georgia). (LINK)

Sacred Heart finished 6-5 overall but just 1-5 in the Northeast Conference last year and will count on a class of 21 to improve its league record. Nearly half of the Pioneer class comes from New Jersey. (LINK)

The Friends of Dartmouth Football auction has gone live with items up for bid running the gamut from a set of eight crystal Dartmouth football glasses to four tickets to a Red Sox game (including a VIP tour and field access during batting practice) to a stay at a five bedroom, ocean front house in Silver Sands, Jamaica.
