News and Notes: Offseason Ivy Roster Report

Below, some roster news and notes from around the Ivy League...
  • Penn will lead the league with the largest roster during the 2010-2011 season in terms of number of players. The Quakers return 15 players from this past season, while adding 8 freshman for a combined roster of 23 players next year. Not surprisingly, Penn has witnessed a parade of players quitting and/or transferring out of the program in the last twelve months, including: Tommy McMahon, Remy Cofield, Garvin Hunt, Harrison Gaines, Carson Sullivan and Brian Fitzpatrick, with the latter two leaving even after Jerome Allen took over head coaching responsibilities.
  • The rest of the league roster sizes in 2010-2011 are as follows: Columbia (20), Cornell (19), Dartmouth (18), Harvard (17 with no seniors), Princeton (16), Yale (15), and Brown (13).
  • Cornell's roster features four former Division I transfers, including Anthony Gatlin (Centenary), Mark Coury (Kentucky), Andrew Ferry (Valparaiso) and Max Groebe (UMass).
  • Princeton's 2010-2011 roster dips to 16 players following freshman Gus Gabel's decision to quit the team.
  • Looking two years down the line...both Penn and Harvard project to have at least 17 players on their 2011-2012 rosters and that is without adding any future recruits from the high school class of 2011.
  • Cornell, Columbia, and Dartmouth have posted their 2010-2011 rosters, but do not include incoming recruits.
