No mention of this William Phillipy kid. Wonder why he is not included as it seems he is definitely going to Albany.





The list is not inclusive. Today is just the first day that letters can be signed. I believe they can only release it with whatever letters they actually receive today. Maybe his got lost in transit.


Kids have a few months to sign though.

This looks on paper like a very good class. I like the size of the lineman on both sides of the ball. The O lineman that looks painfully slow on tape "should" be fine at this level with work on his quickness and agility. If he were fast coming out of high school with that size he would be headed off to Penn State not Albany.


I am curious to find out if each of these kids got a full ride. I imagine with only 11 kids signed and maybe the walk-on from Penn State they each got a full scholarship.
