Josh McKenzie is on his way to the Ivy league and the Yale Bulldogs. The Bergen Catholic running back chose Yale over 12 other schools leading up to his senior season at Bergen Catholic. McKenzie had a number of FBS offers including Rutgers, Boston College, Vanderbilt and Virginia, but opts to head to the Ivy League. McKenzie made the Friday night announcement via his social media accounts:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” … I am committed to Yale University ! #GoBulldogs #4For40 #GodsPlan pic.twitter.com/VabzmDVbhD
