2017 signing class ultra-late arrivals

Post

So I read from another source that FAU is expecting both Carson Lydon (LB) and Jovon burriss (CB) to be enrolling at FAU this spring. They were 2 JUCO guys that never made it to FAU but apparently will be now. That would certainly help since we only have 4 scholarship cornerbacks. Another thing I wanted to address was that I noticed Chris Robison (who transferred from Oklahoma) is listed on the FAU websites roster and was mentioned as receiving accolades as a scout team top performer. What's notable is that jovon durante (transfer from west virginia) is not listed on the roster and was not listed among the scout team top performers. Does anyone know if he ever made it to FAU?

Take that with a huge grain of salt. I will believe It when I believe it.
Also in regards to only have 4 CBs on scholarship. They are not including the nicole guys in that count. So do we need a couple? Yea, but that number is misleading.

Does seem like Lydon and Burriss are expected on the team. I honestly thought the ship sailed for both of them last year.

Good to see them make it to Boca if that's the case. We've learned the hard way, that you can't really expect JuCo guys to be locks until their enrolled in classes.

FWIW: Shane is right, we are 110% fine when it comes to DBs.

+1 & confirmed…

Burriss is no longer committed to FAU. He's looking at northern schools now - UB, & UMass.

Yes, he is on the team…arrived in August. He wasn't on the roster, but that is being corrected.

I think coach Batoon (before the move) visited Lydon recently and Lydon still expects to make it on campus.

Are we no longer interested in him? I see he DE-committed from FAU on Dec. 30 (???) but either of these moves would make no sense to me, from a football perspective, for him! But if he now can only get interest from either of those programs, my, his stock has fallen far!

He's a CB so there is not a huge need now for that right now considering who we have and who we may be bringing in, and I bet his stock has fallen a bit (he's a 2 star now).
