Yale adds FBS-caliber talent 

January, 27, 2012
The Bulldogs have received several new commitments, including two from three-star prospects, multiple sources report.

The most coveted recruit in the group is three-star offensive tackle Braden Meador (Montgomery, Texas), who made an official visit to New Haven, Conn. last weekend. He selected Yale over scholarship offers from Air Force, Columbia, Dartmouth, Tulane and UTEP.

Another three-star, safety Cole Champion, has committed to Yale out of arguably the nation's finest high school football program, St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.), Rivals.com reports. He was also offered by Kentucky, Utah State and Western Michigan.
