The midweek game against Boston College last week meant no opportunity to check in on the recruits, so we have two weeks of games to catch up on. We will likely be seeing news of letter of intent’s being signed, as the early signing period opens tomorrow. Kyler Nachtigall and Ty Pelton-Byce are the only recruits who have already completed their NLIs. I would assume you’d see Shane Bear, Jake Massie, and possible Shane Bear, and Jake McCarthy signing their letters of intent during this signing period.
