FAU Football Official Visitors List for 2019 Bye Week Two
With the 2019 college football calendar offering two bye weeks to every program in the country, it gives coaches an extra week to spend focusing on recruiting.
The FAU coaching staff has decided to use the extra time to bring in a host of top talent for official visits to Boca Raton.
Here are the prospects FAUOwlsnest has confirmed will be on campus this weekend:
Majon Wright 6-4'' 190 lbs WR Cardinal Gibbons High School - I reported a couple of weeks ago that Wright was planning on taking his official before FAU's regular season came to an end. If all goes well this weekend, FAU could land a commitment from the three-star prospect, holding off USF and Indiana, who are also vying for his services.
Kendrick Simpkins 6-0'' 190 lbs DB Robert E. Lee High School - Simpkins (photo above), who took an unofficial visit to FAU in July, told FAUOwlsnest at the time, "it really changed my thinking and my recruitment." "I love what Kiffin is building at FAU", he said. The Alabama prospect also commented that FAU was in his top three which include Nebraska and Colorado. This has not changed after already taking his official to Lincoln earlier this football season.
Bryer Touchton 6-6'' 315 lbs Offensive line Lowndes High School - FAU will be looking to add some big-time size from one the top-ranked high school football teams in the country.
