Its hard for me to understand why so many guys cant make grades. I thought I heard that the Schmidt center will have tutors also. Theres got to be a way to get more qualify. It seems like all our best recruits are like 50/50 at best. While it is promising to have guys here like Deante Nelson and Eyan Cole, and it certainly shows they must have a great head on their shoulders for making it here, I was psyched when We got Wynn. Now he might be here in January? Yikes thats what came to mind was weve been here before. And I forgot Toombs. Hopefully hell make it

Once s prospect signs his NLI, what can FAU do to help ensure they qualify? Can they recommend tutors or assist in any way at all? Don't know, just asking but sure seems in the programs best interest to do so if allowed. I do realize sometimes we are able t get a kid that the BigBoys have basically given up on recruiting just because of grades or injuries so we sometimes take more risks due to this!

Most of the guys that FAU knew were close grades wise never signed an NLI, so they would not count against the class. We had 33 "commit'' FAU knew that the would end with 25-26.

FAU can not do a single thing to help a kid qaulify while he is still in high school.

There are a couple I really wish didn't get away from us (realizing they're far more disappointed than I am…). But I'm still pretty happy with this class as the dust is settling.

Yea lets see when the dust settles which not might be until some kids come in January.

Getting players like Jean, Henry, Nelson, and McCammon is huge.

FYI from Conference USA football media guide…players need to be at FAU camp by August 1. So that likely puts first day of actual practice a day later (the first Friday in August). Media Day is the 18th, that third Sunday.

We usually get the full media availability schedule later in July with what practices are open to the media, so those may not be coming just yet. There have usually been a scrimmage or two open to the fans the last couple years, whether in Boca or on the road.

Maybe I missed it, but did Cook make it to Campus? Or is this an August 1st kind of question?

From what I know, Glover Cook, Xavier Roberts, and Jeremiah Ashe have qualified and will be here for camp.

Shane, since we're a few weeks out from August 1 but a bunch of us are itching, lets talk WRs…seen some news lately that we have a few transfers.

Bama WR Chris Herring - know anything about him or will he just be adding depth? I can't really find anything on his HS stats, doesn't look like he played at Bama.
USF transfer - is he gonna play DB or WR?
Lewis from UCF- another slot guy?

WR is one of those positions where freshman can contribute, just look at the national championship game, who should we keep an eye on to break into the starting rotation by the end of camp?
