The Highly Unofficial List So Far

Here's a list of 26 publicly announced Dartmouth recruits culled so far from Twitter, recruiting sites and media reports. There are probably a handful or so more players headed this way who have not announced, have not yet made a decision or we simply haven't been able to dig up. Thanks to everyone who shared links and names.

A few warnings. Positions are, in most cases, educated guesses. Locations listed are for the high school because while actual hometowns are available for a few recruits they are not available at this time for most of them. Heights and weights are from Twitter, HUDL or media reports. Experience pulling together information like this suggests those numbers aren't always as accurate as you might like. Typos are on me.

Corrections aren't just welcomed, they are encouraged by emailing via the contact form HERE. Look for a more complete list and (hopefully) photos on the traditional signing day next Wednesday, Feb. 7.

With all that out of the way, an alphabetical list of anticipated Dartmouth recruits  . . .

There's a discussion going on about Ivy League-Pioneer Football League scheduling going on at the Any Given Saturday website. Find that thread HERE.

Reading the thread over, there might be some confusion about Jacksonville University. The JU Dolphins from Florida play in the Pioneer Football League. The powerhouse Jacksonville State Gamecocks are from Alabama and play in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Dartmouth is slated to play in Florida at the Jacksonville Dolphins of the Pioneer Football League in 2019.
Yale is expected to introduce Colgate's Vicky Chun as its new athletic director. Those who would know seem to think the Bulldogs have hit a home run. Find Chun's Colgate bio HERE.
