Interesting article on two NESCAC football recruits, one of whom is headed to Williams.

This article helps answer questions raised in a recent Ephblog discussion concerning another future Class of 2011 athlete. Apparently it is kosher for tipped athletes to essentially be assured that they will be admitted to a NESCAC school via early decision (“support” of the application appears to be the operative term) prior to the December 15 notification date. Otherwise, these kids would not sound so confident about their future destinations.

If Kiely was recruited by Brown and Harvard, he must have strong credentials both on and off the field, considering the, on average, superior talent level of Ivy league football as well as the numerical limitations imposed on Harvard’s recruiting pool by the Ivy academic index system (which is toughest on the schools with the highest overall admissions standards).
