Several recruits on campus for official visits this weekend. Looks like Ath Slayton Wild and LB/DE Elijah Brown (both from Tn) are probably Terriers.
Some others on campus are DL Chris Monroe from Petal High in Miss. and OLB/SS Shaun Moore Jr. from Spring Valley High in Cola. No word on who else may be on campus.

Impressive film on Kurz. Looks like a Wofford kind of OL ... would fit right in! Strong league.

Moore had a number of nice offers. Likely will be LB for us.

Elijah Brown appears to have good football IQ ... physical and versatile, good hands.

Awesome. Zak should be a great one for us. Thanks Ruck. Some film of him playing against Colerain, Demmel's high school, and others. http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/zach-ku ... efault.htm

I have a good feeling about the Wilcox twins too.

Kurz looks like he moves well for a guy his size. I saw him listed as 6'5" as well as 6'7" but he looks more like 6'5". Maybe he will follow in the footsteps of Wahrby. I remember Wahrby's highlights showing him as very quick and agile for a big guy.

As for the Wilcox twins I remember reading one of their posts on one of the social media sites that said he and his brother were still interested in Wofford and that they wanted to make sure they were making the right decision. And also that they still could possibly choose Wofford in the end because they still think highly of it. That was at least a month - and maybe longer - ago and I looked for the same post again but I could not find it. Point is that they are still positive about Wofford and might choose to be Terriers. Although I don't want to get anybody's hopes up too much. Still a possibility that they will choose another school.

According to 247 Sports, both of them, a DL from SC state champs Dutch Fork, and a 3 star DB (listing visits to us, Navy, South Dakota, and NDSU) are on campus this weekend. That site has the twins going to TTU on the weekend of the 27th. Can't speak to the accuracy, but just an FYI.

Seems that if the Wilcox twins were not taking Wofford seriously they would not be paying us a visit. I think we still have a good chance of getting both of them.
