    UAB lands 2 commits in week 1. Fellows will probably play as a freshman, and Timmons should turn out to be a good player. This should be a small recruiting class for us with only 9 total scholarships available, leaving us some room to reach for a couple of guys.

    UCF picked up 3 insta-commits in week 1 and hope for a couple of more to sign at the end of the week.

    That and make sure it's guys you have a big lead on already. If you're #1 but are only up by 40 points then you are probably not getting him to insta-commit. The ones I got, I was up by around 140.

    Another season of recruiting on my belly. There are about 5-6 players that are decent players that have me in their top 10, but beyond that they are terrible. Im casting another wide net, and hope to have a more well rounded class this year.

    I agree. If you are recruiting OL to play next year, you are screwed.

    I received my earliest commit to date with a :3stars: OL out of Texas. Not a great pass protector, but really good at run blocking. Don't need him next year, but really solid for depth. Looking to add 4-5 OL this year, so his commitment is huge out of the gate, so I can focus on some other players.

    The improved pitches are certainly helping, I've gone from averaging 175-200 a call, to 200-250, with the occasional 300 point call. Expecting a big jump in recruiting this year, though last year's class was extremely solid for Eastern Michigan.

    Need a big week this week, some players I really like are starting to get big time offers, and I could have a BBJ level flame out.

    The Eastern Michigan recruiting train keeps rolling right along, with another :3stars: commit, an OT named Xavier Harmon out of Florida, and I am very, very happy about this young guy. He is the 18th rated OT in the country, and I think is going to come in close to 70. Great attributes, and with him and Williams committed on the OL, Im at least half way done with my OL recruiting.

    Best part is being able to focuse a little more time on some other players that need it. There are some interesting battles shaping up. Im not giving up on a few players that Im behind on, and Im hoping to pull out some surprises. I've paired my board down to about 12 players, and really want to focuse on these 12 and go from there. I have 18 spots open, so Im not worried about scholarships.

    Could be a really solid class for Eastern Michigan.

    I take any o-linemen that want to play.

    That being said, I signed a :2stars: Guard last week.

    I'm surprised I signed a QB last year. If he watched any of our games, he'd notice it's 1 second and throw or get crushed.

    I do too. But with 4 of 9 recruits signed this season I have some time to throw around.

    Zero commitments thus far - could be an ugly season next year with all my JUCO's departing.
