Recruits By Position

The BGA 's crack research team has crowd-sourced 28 names for the incoming recruiting class. Speculation is there could be two or even three more names floating out there waiting to be discovered, offers remaining to be made, or offers yet to be accepted. Anyone?

Here's the unofficial list by position. Keep in mind the outside linebacker/defensive end distinction is difficult to make. Likewise, does nickel qualify as a linebacker or a defensive back? It seems that depends on who is playing the position and who you ask.

All that considered, this is the class to date with the number of players at said position this year followed by the number at said position a year ago in this format (2020/2019).

As always, errors are mine and corrections are encouraged via the contact form off to the right.

To date there are no new specialists to report.

Former Dartmouth quality control assistant Jennifer King was featured on a Topps football card during her stint as an offensive assistant with the AAF's Arizona Hotshots.
If it's possible, Jennifer King's appointment as a year-long coaching intern with Washington's NFL team has drawn even more press than when Callie Brownson was hired by Dartmouth, then the Buffalo Bills and now the Cleveland Browns.

Read Five Things To Know About Full-Year Coaching Intern Jennifer King on the Washington team's  website HERE. There's also a video interview with her from her time with the Carolina Panthers at the end of the story.
Speaking of Callie Brownson, had a story and video about her becoming the Browns' Chief of Staff HERE.
