Re: '19 Jamaican C - Kofi Cockburn (Offer)

(REALLY) Small connection, but Cockburn will be playing for the same AAU team (NY Rens) that Malik Martin is.

If we can get a commit from Martin, it could strengthen our case just a little bit to land this guy.

Fenway Gridiron Series

Would've been awesome to see URI be a part of this. Six local colleges are participating: UConn vs. BC Maine (CAA) vs. UMass Dartmouth vs. Brown Would've been great to have a fourth game, maybe UNH vs. URI (or switch up the matchups to avoid making it a Conference game) http://www.theday.com/article...

Re: '17 JUCO PF - Shakur Juiston (Offer)

Hardest part with Juiston is how clamped down he keeps his recruiting process. Not tweeting heavily about it, no "Top 3" like a lot of other recruits usually have. Good for him keeping this close to his chest but it's gonna drive every fanbase following him up a wall.
