Let's not forget about this kid transferring in. He has one year of eligibility left and will give us some much needed help on the D Line. Check out his video...

He's a very talented TE with great pass catching skills. They have some things in the works for a good Running back!

Here's a bit more info about some recent transfers, courtesy of LN57:

Tony Harper, the TE from Pitt that was previously mentioned, here's a good photo of him:

Also, a solid RB transferring in from Temple....Jamie Gilmore. I believe he'll have one year of eligibility left (played as a true freshman in '12 and played 2013 and 2014).
5'8" and 190 lbs from Ocala, FL (North Marion HS). Didn't play a ton, but did well when he got the ball....had a 4.6 ypc average on his runs (same as Nikko Watson last year) and 14.1 ypc average on catches (really good for a RB who will only get occasional tosses from the QB).
