A lot has happened since the last Rundown two weeks ago, one that featured commits to Notre Dame, Colgate, Towson and a switch in commitment by a college coach’s son, among others. Many 2019’s are beginning to commit (we’re now at 16 nationally, at least that’s what public) and today there are freshman verbals to Maryland, Hopkins, Virginia and UNC. In addition, there are ’16, ’17 and ’18 commits to 11 other programs.
