Freese on Groza list and other links

On a slow news day, Nate Freese making the Groza list makes for headlines. I am glad BC is supporting the effort, but I don't think Nate score enough to win the award.

Story behind D.J. Gillens' switch from BC to Wisconsin shows how fickle the recruiting process can be.

The Flames are patiently waiting for Gaudreau.

I did not realize the Colts paid a premium to sign Emmett Cleary as an undrafted free agent. That doesn't mean he is a lock to make the team though.

For those who missed it, here is CBS's Morning Show's piece on former BC assistant Don Horton. Horton suffers from Parkinson's and his wife has built a business around shirts that he can button via magnets.

from that ESPN article, its almost comical how Wisconsin flipped him:

"last Friday D.J. Gillins (Jacksonville, Fla./Ribault) knew where he would be committing later that day. The four-star, dual-threat quarterback was committing to Boston College, and he would make it official that evening."

he comes home and there are almost 90 handwritten letters which won over his grandma? then later in the article he learns of an uncle he never had met or knew he had who played for Wisconsin in the 70s? is this a joke?

Over the weekend, Gillins talked with his family and uncle Averick Walker, a Badgers safety three decades ago. Gillins didn’t know he had an uncle who played Division I football up until a few days ago, and he was more surprised to find out Walker played at Wisconsin."

that uncle wound up convincing Gillins he would get used to the weather and the people.

well, here's to pulling for the REAL D WADE Darius Wade our QB commit who's been recruiting guys left and right. good riddance, enjoy Madison, Gillins.

What?! Can that be right? Kid meets uncle he never knew about who happened to have played at Wisconsin? And hek flips just like that?

Weird. Makes me think this verbal might still come back around.
