Number of commitments: 12
Expected class size: 14-15
News of the week: Things really crank up this weekend, with at least seven prospects scheduled for official visits. “We’ve got some kids already committed that will be there, along with other kids that we’re after,” coach Brian Bohannon said. “We’re trying to fill a couple of spots. Between this weekend and next weekend, we’ll try to fill those couple of spots.”
What to feel good about: The Owls have plenty of good candidates for their few remaining spots. “This class with the high school kids, we’re looking for some depth in the secondary, a guy who can rush the passer, and some running backs,” Bohannon said.
Quote of the week: “The biggest thing for us is that it’s 2015. We actually get to play a game. We’re excited about that.” — Bohannon
What to worry about: There will always be the fear that recruiting is going too good and bigger schools might try to poach prospects.
Up next: The Owls will entertain a dozen recruits this weekend and between 6-10 next weekend.
