Absolutely! It also seems like this is a fairly large class or am I wrong? Also, what’s everyone’s thoughts so far on the class?

The only thing I can say with certainty is the coaches collected a lot of frequent flier miles. :lol:
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

It's a bit larger than usual, I think, but I think we had a few more guys transfer out than we usually do.

Let me look into things and I'll get back to you in 2-3 years ;)

I mean, it seems like we've got some talent in there...some guys that had offers from other DI schools, some decent transfers, etc. But you never really know until they get here, start going to classes, getting practice sessions in, etc. Some are going to do great, some will get some playing time, and some probably won't ever see the field in a game (at Western).

If you're looking for things like offers and "stars", here's what I can find:
Isaiah Bellamy - offers from UMass, Troy, Jacksonville State
JaJuan Boyd - 2 stars (247Sports), offers from Bowling Green and Missouri State
Ludovick Choquette - 3 stars (247Sports), offers from Buffalo, Colorado State, Southern Miss, Tulsa (but those were all last summer)
Chastin Cross - 2 stars (247Sports), offer from UMass
Juan Delacruz - 3 stars (247Sports), offer from Toledo
Shawn Lee - 2 stars (247Sports)
Chod Morrow - offer from Louisiana Tech
