UPDATED, Jan. 31
Now is the time for all good high school football players to come to the aid of their college.
National Signing Day is Wednesday.
So, where’s everybody going?
Let’s start with what we know:
Ridgefield has announced that OL Tommy Jordan will sign with Florida, despite the coaching change at the school, in a morning press conference at the school.
We haven’t heard anything from New Canaan on a press conference for OL Conor Hanratty. But you can rest assured, he’s going to Notre Dame.
As for others…
We’re waiting on word from Central’s Christon Gill. The 2009 all-state QB/DB spent the past year honing his skills and academics at Avon Old Farms. Some major schools were in the running, but there have been no offers. He took an official to Penn State, but, according to the website Lions247, the school will not be offering. Gill also took a visit to Miami recently.
Update on Gill: Spoke to Christon just before noon today. He’s on his way to an official visit with Temple. UConn also paid him a visit at school recently, signifying they’re back in the mix. Gill, who has also taken official visits to Penn State and UMass, is also scheduled make an official visit to UMiami soon (players are allowed five official visits).
Gill said he likely will not sign anywhere on National Signing Day. “I’m taking my time,” he said. “I want to take all of my official visits.”
Sean McQuillan, a former all-state player at Glastonbury and Gill’s teammate at Avon Old Farms, remains committed to UConn.
Ansonia’s Montrell Dobbs will go the prep school route and attend Milford Academy.
Tyler Matakevich, the Connecticut Post’s 2010 Athlete of the Year, still hasn’t decided. (We incorrectly said he was going somewhere else earlier.)
The Hartford Courant is reporting that Xavier’s Graham Stewart has added Florida into the mix. The all-state linebacker had given a verbal to Boston College.
Berlin RB Max DeLorenzo is still committed to UConn. …Staples’ Pat Murray and Chris Coyne will be going to Yale. …Valley Regional TE Mitchell King is going to Penn. …Bethel OL Chris Valenti is committed to Harvard.
Nainy Bah, 6-0, 180-pound receiver from Morgan, is committed to play for Steve Addazio at Temple.
Notre Dame-Fairfield’s Kevin Harrigan will be signing at CCSU. Speaking of which, we’re told that former Ansonia all-stater and UConn lineman Erik Kuraczea will be transferring to CCSU as well. No official word yet. Kuraczea quit UConn at midseason last year.
Notre Dame-WH QB Sean Goldrich will sign with New Hampshire.
St. Joseph RB/LB L.J. Hunt will be attending Yale.
Trumbull WR/DB Tom Pauciello will be attending Coastal Carolina.
Stratford DB Markey Desruissesux will be attending Lakawanna College.
From Dave Ruden: Trinity Catholic’s Shawn Robinson will attend CCSU. Darien’s Jake Weil will play at Marist. Teammate Peter McDonough will play at Cornell.
Anyway, we’ll have a full signing day list on Tuesday.
