Glover's highlight film is pretty impressive. Looks like he's got an arm on him.

RE: Early Signing Period
3-Star WR Isaiah McKoy just flipped from Ball State! That gives us 3 wideouts 6'3" or better in this class.

Also, OG Zach Whaley and K/P Dalton DeChristopher committed.

Per Tweet: Add Will Burns.

Congratulations to Prep senior Will Burns. He has verbally accepted a full Division I scholarship to play football next season at Kent State University and he will officially sign this Wednesday.

Can't find to much on him other than this:

Lot of TE and WR - looks like the offense will open up - a real change from D Treadwell. Still wish we had more OL men in the fold - our 2012 team was really anchored by two future pros - Brian W and Josh Kline.

RE: Early Signing Period
The OL may play better now that Treadwell is gone. Every play the OL was in pass and run protection. Hard to protect the players behind you when you aren't sure what the play will be. Not to mention the QB and RB rotation every series. The lineman couldn't get into a true understanding of how to protect or anticipate what the guy with the ball would do. A functional offense will do that group a lot of good.

BIG commitment from TE/LB Matt Harmon out of Michigan. Had P5 offers and had trimmed his list to us and Toledo.

The Toledo ship had sailed. Especially after the JUCO and St Thomas Aquinas LB'ers
committed.

Looking at a top 100 recruiting team (Currently 97) and #5 in MAC. I know recruiting rankings may not be the best indicator, but is a nice step forward!

This class has 3 players in the top ten for KSU since 247 Sports kept rankings in 2000.

What makes this even more impressive is the short period of time in which they've pulled this class together. SL wasn't even hired until after the start of the early signing period. The top MAC teams had 80% of their class committed by then. And our class should be right on their heels. It will be interesting to see what they can do with a full recruiting cycle in 2019.

This kind of shows what a poor staff we had before. Our university really is not that hard to recruit to. Any talk in that direction is just an excuse. I really like what our coaches are doing now and our future is bright.

RE: Early Signing Period
I'm excited about this recruiting class too and happy with what the new coaches are doing. He did have a little bit of an edge though. He already had his foot in the door with several of these kids from when he was at Syracuse. It'll be interesting to see what he can do when that's not a factor.

+1 to this sentiment.....amazing what a little effort can do. There's lot of attractiveness to the campus, city, and area.

Looks like the Purdue flip Connor Parks is the lone person on the 247 Sports list yet to sign.
