    I can’t speak for the other three teams, but Chaminade has a few guys who have committed but aren’t on the list yet, like Tim Burke (Dartmouth), Tim O’Brien (Holy Cross), and Joe Stone (Furman). So Chaminade actually has 14 commits from the 2013 class. Also, O’Connell (Villanova) will do a postgrad year, so he will matriculate the same year as the 2013s.

  2. LI101387 says:

    Oh also I forgot Chris Comerford (Washington & Lee). So including O’Connell, Chaminade has 16, of which 14 are going D-1. Pretty impressive.
