Josh Ward spent the past month on the phone.

After the University of Buffalo made a late decision to withdraw its scholarship offer to him just before National Signing Day (Feb. 4), Ward was left without a school to commit to. So, the Post’s 2014 Small Schools Defensive Player of the Year made it a daily habit to call college coaches to check if any still had room left in their recruiting class.

“I can’t even count how many schools we called,” Ward said. “We called every one that we could. All of the Division I-AA schools I called were full, so I thought the chances of going to a Division I school were slim.” [More]
