Late Addition to 2007 Class

Wow, lots of recruiting news in the last few days. It was reported in the Daily News that wide receiver Ben Bruneau, from Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks, will be playing on the team in 2007. Bruneau will walk-on the team this fall after completing his Senior year at Notre Dame. Ben said he signed with the Bruins in April but wanted to keep it quiet while concentrating on his last high school track and field season.

He reminds me of Matt Willis, who was also a track star that walked onto the football team a few years ago. It is always great to get fast, athletic players at the wide receiver position and Ben looks like a great athlete. He competed in a number of state track meets this year and helped Notre Dame win a team title.

Bruneau wasn't highly recruited out of high school, but I think he kind of slipped under the radar. He moved to California from Florida after his Junior year, and with recruiting services being the way they are, they may have just lost him in the shuffle.
