A New Name

Alert eyes have uncovered a Dartmouth football recruit from an unlikely location . . .

Both his Twitter and Instagram accounts identify Dario Arazi, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound defensive end/offensive tackle as heading to Dartmouth in another year. Arazi, who fielded offers from several Ivies including hometown Columbia, attends Brooklyn Tech High School, described by Wikipedia as, "an elite New York City public high school that specializes in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics."

There are likely a few more commitments out there but here's the class the BGA network has dug up to date:

• Dario Arazi, 6-6, 225, DE/OT, Brooklyn Tech/Brooklyn, N.Y.
• Jack Dyett, 6-5, 210, DE/TE, Brentwood School/Los Angeles, Calif.

• Marcus Romboli, 6-3, 270, DE, Deerfield Academy/Everett, Mass.

The Burlington, Vt.-based newspaper Seven Days has a Q&A with Callie Brownson, the former Dartmouth recruiting coordinator/quality control assistant, about her move from college football to the NFL with the Buffalo Bills. Find that story HERE.
