But the Staples coaches tell me two of their captains, ends Pat Murray and Chris Coyne have committed to play at Yale University.
Of the two, Coyne’s name showed up most on national recruiting sites. He’s been listed at approximately 6-foot-4 and 215-pounds. Coyne made 71 tackles, 16 sacks and had two interceptions last year as a junior. On offense as a receiver/tight end he caught 12 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown. As early as mid-last season, several sites reported Boston College and Northwestern giving him looks.
Murray is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound linebacker and tight end who caught 18 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown on offense. He had 52 tackles, 9 sacks and an interception on defense.
Both made Staples’ defense rock last year and should again.
