Default First 2015 Commit

I noticed this commit while reviewing twitter commits on our UNI basketball victory against SFA

"Connor Maclean Ham ‏@BringTheHAMmer1 Nov 12

So I've decided to pass up other opportunities and stay home and commit to UNI to play football and run track! #PantherNation 💜💛"

His Twitter account also has him listed as going to UNI
https://twitter.com/BringTheHAMmer1

It appears he is from Solon and is a good football player and won the 110 hudles and 2oo meters state title for 3A Track . So he is quite the athlete, has anyone seen him play?

Apparently here is another

https://twitter.com/briggsmichael10

QB Michael Briggs

I found these on our staff's Twitter Account.
The students appear to be labeling their Twitter accounts to whom they have committed to. Makes it easier to search.
Two Interesting things I found.
-A ton of SEC area athletes. This shows that UNI is going for more overall Southern Speed. A ton of Georgia and Tennessee, athletes in the mix.
-The prospects are labeling there commitments early and have it for all to see. It used to be such a secret on where someone was going. it appears to be less of a concern now.

I noticed a lot of kids doing that last year for baseball. My son and a lot of friends did it. Now I am noticing the kids I know committing to play baseball this year doing it.

I agree, his highlight tape looked very impressive. His arm did not look too bad either.

Interesting. He took part in the elie 11 qb camp so I think thats good, But his juco stats do not look that impressive (although I know nothing about juco football)

Looks like we just got a commit from West Virginia transfer CB Brandon Napoleon. He will have 2 years of eligibility remaining.

We already have so much depth at the d back position, we need transfers on the offensive line and defensive line, and maybe a receiver

Good size for the oline, especially a center. Has a 3 star rival rating for a Juco player, hopefully this means he has a little nastiness to him. You would think that UNI would put a premium on a more physical and mean oline. Then again, that is the thought of every coach in America.

Agree. We need some nasty back on the o-line. A DT mentality playing OT.

UNI has picked up a transfer RB from Rutgers. Savon Huggins, a 4 star RB out of high school, was regarded as one of the most heralded recruits in Rutgers history. Sat out all last year due to injury, and struggled to live up to the hype at Rutgers.

He will only have 1 year of eligibility remaining.

I asked a Rutgers fan a little more about Savon and here was his response:

He's a power runner. Not much of a cut/juke guy. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to break out at RU. Our OLine was suspect until last year, then he got injured and never got to run behind our best OLine in 5 years.
I honestly think the guy is smart and has what it takes, he just got pushed down the depth chart behind guys who could cut and juke around weak spots in the OLine, so the ones that could make something out of a second chance in the run thrived. Meanwhile, 4star Power Running Huggins got swallowed up at the LOS a lot. He still got positive yardage, but at 2-3 YPC it wasn't enough to out duel our shiftier 4-7 YPC guys.

Rutgers fan also added this:

I really hope he tears it up at UNI and gets some NFL notice. He's certainly helped out the younger guys on our team with film study and practice while he's been injured. Good guy all around, from what I hear, and I wish him the best.

Hey guys,

Wonder how recruiting is going? Wish we had better intel into recruiting like some other teams froums do. Its got to be fun for the recruits to see them talked about on fan message boards. I am sure its not a make or break deal for most recruits but it would be a good way for them to see the passion Panther football fans have. Of course it all comes down to access and intel. Might be a good idea to assign a social media savy assistant to be involved in monitoring and using social media as a tool to help with recruiting? Just a thought.

Looks like Briggs is following Verduzco to Missouri State.

Sounds like UNI got verbals from a Safety/RB out of Oak Grove, IL (Aaron Graham) who won a state title last year...and a big fella out of Mayern, MN (Otterstatter) who'll play TE or DE...6'6" and 235 and can run.

One is a kid from Southfield, Michigan. I think his name is Marques Grimes. Got an offer.

He's big as a cement truck and looks pretty athletic...but has only played FB for a few years.

I think his HS team's mascot is the Wildcats. He has a pic with a Wildcats jerseys. What's our list of commits?

I'm pretty sure that's a Bethune-Cookman uniform he's wearing in his other picture. Not sure any other "-CU Wildcats" out there. The caption says he's on an official visit

Also as far as recruitment lists go, I really enjoyed putting together the recruitment thread last year to keep track of commitments. However, it was a ton of work and as a first-year teacher I not only don't have, but feel weird about searching names of 18 yr old "men" on twitter (whether its school hours or not).
