Another Coastal Commit

Casey Mariucci

6-4 215 pound TE/DE Casey Mariucci from La Jolla Country Day School has committed to Columbia. He becomes the third Coastal League player to join the incoming freshmen class along with his La Jolla classmate P Drew Schmid and Justin Woodley from Bishop's School.

Mariucci bounced back from an injury-marred junior season to put up monster numbers on offense and defense in 2016.

I think Jake understates this guy, looks like an outstanding addition to our receiving corp. All positions look good although could still use help at interior DL (just one so far).

Jake and others, while this looks like a great class, we don't have the large number of two and three star recruits that we had last year. While a few came late in the game, it seems as if H and Y are racking up a lot of two and three star guys. Any significance to all this?

When we had a TE of size like Andrew Kennedy, our offense had a true go to guy and we scored a whole lot more! Heres hoping we found another

oldlion said...

Can Mariucci be an Andrew Kennedy type of TE who can stretch defenses and catch passes? Kennedy was the best TE in the IL and a match up nightmare and this young man actually looks taller and faster than Kennedy.

Lost weekend for MBB as they fall to the "Killer P's" over the weekend.
They came within a 3-pt shot of completing a remarkable 20-pt comeback
in New Jersey Saturday night. When their game is on they can compete with anyone in the league (yes even Yale) and will be a nightmare
for any first seed in the Tournament- IF they can manage a fourth place finish.

Lets give a shout out to Grant Mullins who is starting for Cal and making a difference against highly ranked PAC 10 opponents. Kid can play
