California QB Commits

Hunter Petlansky

6-2 225 pound QB Hunter Petlansky announced yesterday that he has committed to Columbia for 2016.

Petlansky has already led Central Catholic HS to two straight state championships. He's a pro style QB, but he only averages about 15 throws a game.

He had some interest and offers from San Jose State and schools like Arizona.

Petlansky will be the first documented Modesto Central Catholic player to come to play for Columbia.

His region is recruited by Columbia assistant coach and very newlywed John Poppe. 

New Assistants

Speaking of assistants, we now know for sure what we saw on Twitter: Columbia football has two new assistant coaches. They are defensive assistant Lewis Walker and offensive assistant Kevin Callahan.

Walker played as a DB and a special teams specialist at the University of Hawaii before transferring to the University of Utah and graduating from there in 2013,

Callahan played for Amherst and after he graduated last year, he won the Edward Hitchcock Fellowship for the graduating senior interested in pursuing a coaching career.

Getting kind of crowded in the QB ranks, no? Isn't there at least one other commit for 2016 who's also a QB? I'd thus expect at least a few of them to be converted to DB's. Still, a nice sort of surplus to have.
