Number of commits: 9
Expected class size: 22
Star recruit: Dustyn Moore, a transfer linebacker who is returning home after two seasons at Kent State. Moore prepped at Heritage High in Conyers.
News of the week: Four junior-college signees, along with Moore, were expected to begin classes this week. They will be eligible to participate in spring drills.
What to feel good about: More than half of this year’s class (around 14) will be transfer players, and the Owls are making steady progress on that goal. … Five high school players have publicly committed and at least two others have reportedly let the Owls know that they’re coming.
What to worry about: Kicker A.J. Wells, a transfer from Middle Tennessee, switched from Kennesaw State to Holy Cross. The Owls may not sign a kicker.
Quote of the week: “We’re on the road recruiting this week. FCS schools can be on the road. For us, we’re spending this week going to see committed kids. And we have a few other kids that we’re trying to solidify.” — Kennesaw State coach Brian Bohannon
Next: The Owls are in the process of setting up all of their remaining official visits for the last two weekends of January.
