FAU recruiting heating up

You may have noticed at we have been ramping up our recuiting coverage as FAU prepares for life after this dreadful season.

Recruiting is the one area where the Owls are ahead of the last two years, having already procured one commitment - Belleview tight end Alex DeLeon - and could be close on several others.

Things on the recruiting front should really be heating up in the next few weeks and we'll be on top of things.

I'd be remiss if I didn't address a few misconceptions about FAU's rectuiting, namely that FAU doesn't give early offers.

While FAU isn't in a rush to complete its recruiting class by the summer, the Owls are indeed players when it comes to pursuing some of the top atheltes in South Florida before their senior season.

I'm not sure where this misconception came from or why it has persisted, but FAU does indeed work hard at recruiting year round - with a flourish of activity in January when the Owls bring in most of their recruits in for official visiits.

We'll be talking to plenty of prospects - like Chuck King did in a story Tuesday on Fernandina Beach running back Tahj Kimble - in the coming weeks leading up to National Signing Day in eary February.

In addition to our recruiting story on Tahj Kimble, we stuck around for the rain-soaked practice Wednesday. Here's our report.

We'll have a preview of Friday's basketball game at South Florida and be at football practice today before spending the rest of the day with our families and we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
