Welcome Brian. Others more in step with the details of our recruiting at this early stage can tell you whether this list is complete. I simply want to add that our recruiting in recent years has been very strong, especially in terms of good kids who go to class and can do the work, and that every year we seem to come up with great players in late January before signing day, recruitment of whom was under the radar; many of our best signees have fit into this category.

Hey LawDog! Yep ... VERY good classes, I concur.

I've reached out to Cecil Fisher and Harrison Morgan and they've backed up that this list looks pretty updated. But if anybody sees a missing recruit, I could use your help/eyeballs. Somethings following FCS recruiting is needle in a haystack craziness

No doubt an impressive start by Furman's coaching staff, but ask Rodney Allison how much good winning the recruiting rankings every year can work out on fall Saturdays.

Interesting rankings although player offers can be heavily influenced by what the player reports on social media and not all offers are genuinely commitable. Furman has done well on the field this year and will likely always recruit well because they have a lot to offer. Just saying the methodology behind these rankings is a bit suspect and may not correlate with on-field results for a number of reasons. Always nice to see the SoCon get some attention though so thanks to whoever put this together

Terrier13, sure, I agree on recruiting being tough to evaluate at FCS.
That said, this list is about the best you can get - the list is from the same guy that posted here for you guys at the top of the page.. Brian Mac
