Question Marks: Fielding a number two quarterback and developing depth on the offensive line.
Recruiting: Bearfield committed to Temple. Hilliman chose Rutgers over Ohio State and others. Cox has interest from Miami, Rutgers, South Florida, and UConn. Angeli has interest from Colgate and Cornell. Justin Walker is 1-AA, along with Condy. Walsh is D3.
The juniors feature Fitzpatrick and Wimbush, who will both have a host of 1-A offers. Tolentino is also a 1-A candidate. Fox will be a very good candidate. A hidden gem is Robertson.
In the sophomore class, Gray, Boykin, James, and Strickland all have good potential.
