FAU 2016 Class - Sun Sentinel Article

FAU set to haul in best recruiting class under Charlie Partridge - Sun Sentinel

Interesting article on the points Tom Lemming makes.

Not sure this class is set to be better than last years.  We have lost a few big defensive flips in my opinion.

@Walty…in every recruiting class , you hope to have a handful of signees that are locks to be good players. I think we will have that. A couple real good OLmen and DLmen (I'm big on having solid lines). I know one of the LB's won't disappoint. The DB from Royal Palm is great. And I am sure the rest are very good. The key is to not let one position get so lean that it becomes a problem. When Coach Carl took over, the team was very lean. Problems all over the field. I know we have 6-7 players that will develop into very good D-1 players. Walton may be the best. I have heard great things about him. Never seen him,but others are impressed. It looks like the coaches will get a nice variety of players and every position restocked. Charlie hasn't gotten that big name guy yet. But we need some wins and a bowl for that to happen.

247 "Numbers" are extremely close for this year vs last based on the ratings alone…

2016: .7997

2015: .8031

2014: .7675

2013: .7894

Of major note, Lucky Whitehead (2013) was 2*!

I believe every class in the history of FAU has been called their best class in history. I believe every class in the history of Alabama has been called their best class in history. I believe every class in the history of Florida has been called their best class in history.

Recruiting season is marketing genius!

Agree.  I thought Tom Lemming's quotes were interesting.  From what I know he is very involved in the recruiting circles.  Interesting to hear his take on FAU and how he is contstantly hearing our name from prospects.  Good to hear.
