Quarterback Rob Nittolo of Hillsborough (N.J.) High committed to James Madison, according to mycentraljersey.com, and what the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder said in that story could spark talk around JMU.
“It’s really up and coming and they’re moving to Conference USA soon. I don’t think it was as big ... a decision as most people would think it is,” Nittolo is quoted as saying.
JMU has acknowledged considering moving up from the Championship Subdivision’s Colonial Athletic Association to the Bowl Subdivision but has no official invitation to do so in place.
Nittolo, a 6-foot-2, 200-pounder, threw for 2,336 yards and 23 touchdowns this season after moving from Florida. He picked the Dukes over Rutgers and New Hampshire, the story said.
Emerson Etem scored twice, while Igor Bobkov made 37 saves as the Norfolk Admirals gained their third victory in a row -- and second road win in two nights -- by beating the Syracuse Crunch 6-3.
Norfolk (16-11-1-4) pulled within two points of first-place Binghamton in the East Division. The Admirals can pull even with Binghamton when they visit the Sound Tigers on Tuesday.
