I'm getting excited for signing day again. I pray we get some players capable of filling needs and not just taking scholies. There are so many of us on this board who are dying to be relevant in the MAC championship again.

There does not seem to be many (if any) guys we are targeting where we end up being the only reported FBS offer, which is a good sign. While there's no doubt that we lost some nice pieces in this class with the transition, I'm kind of getting the feeling like we will be pleasantly surprised with this class all things considered. Not quite as good as it would have been, IMO, but likely better than most of the previous classes. It does seem like we are targeting a lot of DE/OLBs and DTs. Probably trying to get some personnel in for the change to a 3-4.

I’m on my phone so can’t post a link, but we got a verbal from a good looking linebacker from Humboltd State, CA named Demetrick Watts (6-0, 225).

Can't copy the tweet, but Zach Gibson (QB) committed. Are you starting a new list, @Blue & Gold? :)

Yeah, I’ll have to get back on that.  I’d let it go since the early signing day came and went.

Here is a 4 and a half minute interview of Zach from June 2016. Seems to have a good head on his shoulders and was once the #1 rated QB in GA.

That was from his, what, Sophomore year? Wow.

B2C sits down with Zach Gibson the #1 rated QB in Georgia for the class of 2019.  The Johns Creek signal caller talks about how the past season went for him and what he is looking forward to seeing happen this upcoming season...

I updated the initial post with our (5?) current verbal commits.  Let me know if I've missed anyone.

I really like what I see of Zach Gibson. He looked very polished in his video, so I can only hope he's gotten even better since then.

So 247 debuted their transfer portal today, where I imagine they have an insider leaking the NCAA transfer portal info. Good news - I do not see any Akron players on there. I also don't see any listed as transferring to Akron. Looks like Ball St lost both their QB and RB to better schools so far. Yikes!

Was a Bowden recruit. Glad to see that he's still on board after a visit with the new staff.

Him/his dad really seemed and still seem to be all about the Zips based on what I casually piece together on twitter. Glad to have him!

With the commits from Tyson McDonald and Jarrod Uran, that makes 5 out of 7 new commits that visited during the snowstorm weekend.
