The Owls will be playing host to some visitors for their upcoming 2016 signing class this weekend, which currently contains 12 members.
Twelve seniors will depart, with another three roster members pursuing FCS pastures for next season. This would give FAU 15 solid spots to work with, although the total class count could reach higher in the end. Positions still in direct need are offensive line and quarterback.
Below are the current prospects and commits expected to be in Boca this weekend, along with a couple who are possible.
Steven Frank - 6-4, 190 lbs 3* quarterback prospect from Oswego, Illinois. Holds offers from Boston College, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Illinois, Northern Illinois, and others. Recruited by Brian Wright, who he says he really likes and went in home with on December 1st. While listed as a pro style quarterback, Frank is a threat with his legs as well. Has FAU in his Top 3.

Ean Biancardi - 6-5, 290 lbs 3* offensive lineman out of Lake Wales, Florida. Holds four C-USA offers as well as Cincinnati, USF, and a number of others. Was offered by FAU On August 5th, and presently has the program in his Top 2. In home visit with Owls' Coaches Bart Miller and Terrance Jamison on December 1st. "That was definitely great to know that they're expanding", said Biancardi of the planned Schmidt Athletic Center. "The sky's the limit". Video Highlights: Ean Biancardi - Hudl
Brandon Walton - 6-5, 285 lbs 3* offensive lineman out of Seminole, Florida. Holds offers from Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Iowa State, Miami, UCF, USF, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, and others.

Doug Kramer - 6-3, 275 lbs offensive lineman from Hinsdale, Illinois. Top offers are from Army, Ball State, and Bowling Green. "What makes Doug so special is the athleticism he has for a guy of his size," said Kramer's high school coach Dan Hartman. "He ran a 4.9 40-yard dash and jumped 30 inches in the vertical at 6-3, 275. The athleticism really helps him in pass protection." Video Highlights: Doug Kramer - Hudl
