Plenty still in play for Humphrey
Mitchell quarterback Tate Humphrey orally committed to Wayne State late Monday night. But there's still plenty in play before his planned March 21 visit, when he would be expected to sign a letter of intent.
Mitchell coach Scott Schmitz sent video of Humphrey to Dodge City Community College in Kansas, the school Ridgewood running back Byronell Arline signed a letter of intent with last week. Dodge City coaches are searching for a quarterback and are expected to view the film today.
Why is that significant? Humphrey and Arline are cousins.
"I'd go there," Humphrey said Tuesday when told Arline had signed with Dodge City. "I'd love to go there with my cousin."
Humphrey's ultimate goal is to transfer to a Division I or I-AA program after a season or two, making Dodge City a viable option. Humphrey went on to say he simply made a "verbal commitment" and hasn't signed a letter of intent.
Set your DVR
Baseball weather permitting, Pasco travels to Ridgewood tonight at 7 in both teams' regular-season openers. Rams coach Larry Beets, for whom the Rams' field is named, has been bemoaning his club's youth, but we argue having Beets in the dugout is worth 10 wins by itself. Pasco, which may possess more offensive pop than last year's 26-4 club, likely will start ace righthander and Saint Leo signee Aaron Brandt.
