Recruiting Update

The list of commitments is getting solid as recruiting season winds down. There is less than a week away before signing day, Feb 1. If all the verbal commitments sign then Fresno State will be two over their scholarship limit. However, these things tend to work themselves out. Either a couple of recruits will grayshirt or some lettermen may not return for fall. Robert Schenck could still spurn the 'Dogs and sign with Washington State or Arizona. There is also a rumor that Kenny Hedrington may not make grades. I expect Pat Hill to pull at least one rabbit out of his hat before Wednesday. Whether that is another diamond in the rough or a previous verbal that de-committed. This list also does not show any potential walk ons that Hill may have coming in for fall. Garret McIntyre, Bryson Sumlin, Emanuel Sanchez, and Matt Rivera were all walk ons that eventually earned scholarships.

That Rabbit in Patt's hat just might be Devin Johnson from Rancho Cucamonga. He is a 3 star weakside D-end, and runs a legit 4.5. It is down to either us or Arizona.

Mike Stoops at Arizona is raking a monster class. Despite the 3-8 record the Wildcat class should be a top 20 class easily. Stoops already took Mike Turner away from Hill, and is still trying to entice Robert Schenck.

I always liked WR/DB Tyquan Knox out of Crenshaw, but his off the field problems have narrowed his choices. I doubt Hill takes a chance on him since his stock has dropped dramitically. He out performed blue chip Jemere Holland of Taft in the season opener. Hamler could still have a change of heart.
