First 2012 commit - DL Shalom Ogbanda

Its early but its great to have the ball rolling, young raw talent I think he'll be a great addition to the defensive line in a few yrs…A couple other positives would be he's an out of state recruit which means were trying and Rivals finally updated our logo.

He had offers from ULL and UVA amongst others. Looks to be a good addition, but until he signs that piece of paper and steps foot on campus, don't get your hopes up

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Agreed. Sometimes these kids stay partial to the first school that offered them. I wouldn't say we don't have a shot, it may be a small one, but you never know. I like to see that at least they aren't waiting around. Can't knock em for trying, they're doing their best and trying to get kids to commit early.

Soft verbal?

Not putting any stock in that one…

The scholar in me would call that a contradiction but the football fan understands…especially if we have a horrible season and some other schools come knockin…but really even if he said "I'm going to FAU that's it its final no one can change my mind" it wouldn't be any different…In the words of Chris Rock "A man is only as faithful as his options" I think it applies to football as well

Pretty much, but I can think of a few who comitted last year which said totally different things, and showed up…

Bottom line, IF this guy shows up, we'll see how good he is when he takes the field…he's raw at best right now.
