More news coming form Spring Pratice, as a more complete picture is beginning to emerge.
Keith Groller of the Morning Call, giving tangential evidence that he's checking my weblog, mentions that he thinks that there may not be answers to many of my questions about this weekend's scrimmage. But according to Keith's report, a more complete pictue is emerging.
At WR next year we have some speedy receivers in junior WR Gerran Walker (also a standout in track), junior WR Winfred Porter, and sophomore WR Frank Torvato. Combined with banged-up TE Adam Bergen, Lehigh could have a fairly potent passing attack. Let's also not forget junior "Bo" Tkatch who may figure in the mix.
Most interestingly, Groller implies that the race for the QB spot is wide-open between senior Kyle Keating, junior Mark Borda, and Delaware transfer Mike Connor. Again, LFN will be watching this battle very closely over the coming days.
Quick hits: NFL Draft
Lehigh's CB Lawrence Williams may be looking to stick as a late-round draft pick on Day 2 of the NFL draft. He's listed in the combine, and could possibly be a sleeper pick for someone on draft day or as a free agent. You can't have too many DBs in football, and it's quite possible that he will be on an NFL roster come September. LFN will be watching closely.
Also from the Patriot League: 2 QBs are on the board, Fordham's Kevin Eakin and Lafayette's Marco Glavic. Glavic is interesting since he has pro height and could develop into a good starter. If he slides through the draft (he may very well get drafted), he would probably get nabbed by a CFL team from his native Canada. In LFN's opinion, Eakin looks like a free agent invitee, with this year's deep class at QB.
Congratulations to Dave Crockett for becoming an assistant coach at Averett University. Dave is a smart kid who LFN feels will be a great coach, with his commitment to athletics and academics. With luck, he'll find his way back to the Lehigh staff some year. Congratulations, Dave.
