We’ve reported on recruiting commitments as they’ve been made throughout the year.

Today, senior players from sea to shining sea started to make those commitments official — and binding.

The NCAA’s fall signing period got under way today and continues through Nov. 18.

Here now is a look at where senior players from Westchester/Long Island/Fairfield are headed.
I’ve also tacked on commitments that have already been made for members of the Class of 2011 — current juniors.

    Nicely done Joe. Very complete list and some interesting surprises. Impressed by the large group of commits from WM.

  2. indianjoe says:

    hey joe,
    do you know how the leagues will be setup this year?

  3. Joe Lombardi says:

    Yes, Indianjoe. They will be set up with geography being the overriding factor. John Jay and Somers are in a league with just six teams, so the teams will play each other home and home. Yorktown is in a league with Mahopac and Lakeland/Panas, among others, but which has more teams, so it will be playing each team just once.

  4. casual observer says:

    any word on the rest of the CHSAA? mainly the iona prep and fordham prep seniors? i know there are kids from iona like fahy, trizano(steven), tracy, and kaiser who shuld be up on this list soon.

    Heard that Pleasantville goalie Conor Fraylick has committed to Fairfield
