Florida Atlantic on Wednesday signed four late additions to its 27-player recruiting class, two running backs, a wide receiver and a defensive back.
The Owls also lost one recruit who had been committed to FAU as of last weekend – speedy outside linebacker James King, who signed with Miami.
The additions were wide receiver James Brunson, running backs Trey Rodriguez and Khantrell Burden and defensive back Ocie Rose.
FAU added the most depth at defensive back, with nine signees. The position where the least depth was added was on the defensive line, with just one signee.
Never miss a local story.
Fullback Aaron Cochran and defensive back Brandon Scott were late additions to UCF’s signing class.
Cochran, who is a three-star recruit from Atlanta, is huge for his position at 6-3, 260 pounds.
But while Cochran is big, UCF’s signing class is not. With only 16 signees, the Golden Knights were not able to full address every position, signing just one defensive back and no defensive tackles or tight ends.
The Bulls added 21 players, including 19 from Florida. The other two recruits are from Texas and Ohio.
USF signed two junior-college recruits and two others who are already on campus, including former four-star offensive lineman Reilly Gibbons, who transferred in from Stanford and is expected to make a major impact.
The Bulls addressed every position on offense, especially wide receiver, where they signed four. On defense, the Bulls signed five players for their secondary but no tackles.
The Wildcats announced 22 signees, loading up on the defensive line, with six players. However, they have yet to sign a linebacker in this class.
Looking for an immediate payoff, the Wildcats signed three junior college linemen, including two on defense.
Five of the Wildcats’ signees are from Miami, including two kickers/punters - Javaunie Francis of Central and Uriel Hernandez of Homestead.
The Rattlers have yet to officially release their signing class.
