Armani Adams of St. Petersburg-Lakewood and Meiko Dotson of Garden City CC both tell OwlAccess.com they’ve committed to the FAU 2018 recruiting class.
The duo made their official visits to FAU last weekend.
“It just felt natural to me,” Adams said. “I could just imagine myself being there for the next four years.”
Adams and Dotson have ties to Power 5 schools. Adams, projected as a safety, committed to Arizona before the Wildcats fired coach Rich Rodriguez.
Dotson, primarily a corner, began his career at Georgia Tech, where he recorded two tackles before transferring to Garden City. Dotson’s four interceptions in 2017 tied him for No. 18 nationally at the JUCO level.
In a text message, Dotson wrote that he selected FAU because he is an “older guy and just wants the best spot to compete and finish my two years, so i felt like that was the best spot to prepare for the next level.”
Dotson still intends to take an official visit to Colorado St. this coming weekend.
Adams says, as far as he’s concerned, the recruiting process is complete.
“That was my first official visit and that was my last official visit,” Adams said.
FAU coaches are telling recruits they intend to sign two safeties and two corners as part of this year’s class. The Owls had planned to bring Park Crossing (Ala.) safety Cam Taylor to campus this week, but the coaches canceled that visit, saying there was no longer room at the safety position, Taylor said.
Adams and Dotson are the seventh and eighth commits to FAU’s 2018 recruiting class, not counting transfers. Five signed in December during the early signing period. The Owls also have transfers Chris Robison (QB), Jovon Durante (WR) and Kyle Davis (WR) already on their roster.
