contact partner who heavily recruited me before SA starts?

Title basically says it all...should I shoot an email to the partner who heavily recruited me at the firm I ultimately chose that just says that I am looking forward to the summer and hope to work on some projects for him? Is it presumptuous to assume I would be working on his projects?

Define "heavily recruited." If he was just your contact person on the recruiting committee then I don't think I'd send him anything. If there was a real personal connection between you two, then sure--drop him an email.

I think saying you're looking forward to the summer and to working with him is enough. I wouldn't say specifically that you want to work on projects of his unless you know of specific things he's working on that you might be able to help with (but if you know that, you probably have had similar conversations with him already and it'd be even less of a risk to bring it up again!). If you haven't talked about specific projects with him already, I wouldn't bring them up.

Shoot him an email once you show up.
