Lincoln WR Myles Gaines pledges to Yale


Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln wide receiver Myles Gaines committed to Yale University on Monday, choosing Yale over Harvard and Princeton.

Gaines, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound senior, caught three touchdown passes last season in a limited role. According to head coach Yusuf Shakir, Gaines' role will be expanded as a senior.

"He can do a lot of things for us, but I love to play him in the slot," Shakir said. "He's tough for safeties to handle and he's just an all-around great player.

"Early in the process he decided that he wanted to go the Ivy League route and I think it's a great lifetime decision for him."

Shakir says Gaines plans to study engineering at Yale.
