Today will be a busy day spent playing catch-up. There will be a few more camp reports from last week that I haven’t posted yet. I’m also working on compiling a complete schedule of scrimmages for Saturday. I have most of them, but if you have details on a scrimmage you can e-mail me at email@example.com.
The 31-year-old Hufnagel is now an assistant at Cal, which hired him back in the spring. Hufnagel previously spent two years at Oklahoma as a graduate assistant, four as an assistant coach at Harvard and one as an assistant at Vanderbilt. (He actively recruited Iona Prep’s Matt Ryan to Vanderbilt.) He’s formed strong relationships with NBA stars Blake Griffin (pictured right) and Jeremy Lin, and developed a reputation as an excellent recruiter.
Ironically, Hufnagel was cut from the varsity basketball team at Scarsdale, but he stayed in the game — first broadcasting games at the school, then working as a student manager at Cornell and interning with the Nets.
