EMU announces 2012 football recruiting class
Missing from my list were the following:
- Tim Brown (LB) originally committed to Hawai’i and redshirted there in 2009, then spent the last two years at San Jose City College; he’ll have two years of eligibility at EMU.
- Arron Pipkins (DT)
- Mycal Swaim (S) attended Butte College, a junior college football powerhouse in California, where he led the team with 64 tackles (38 solo) and had six interceptions in 2011; he’ll have two years of eligibility at EMU.
Brown and Swaim bring the junior college transfers in this recruiting class to four, and it’s worth noting that all four are defensive players (two defensive tackles, a linebacker, and a safety) who should help plug some of the holes left by the large graduating defensive class while English’s high school defensive recruits continue to develop.
On my list but not announced by EMU were Donte Bowen (DT) and Kyle Hughes (WR/ATH). After the dust of National Signing Day has settled a bit, I’ll be hunting around to try to figure out what happenned to these two.
Of the recruits with uncertain positions, the only one meaningfully different from what I listed as expected (from Scout) is Dustin Creel, who EMU has listed as a wide receiver.
Here’s what Ron English had to say about the recruiting class:
