Some things to note about this particular class:
- The pipeline to Ohio continues, as the overwhelming majority comes from Ohio, 12 to be exact. They compliment 6 Indiana players, 2 Florida players, and 1 apiece from Kansas and Missouri.
- Pinkston was rumored to be a Toledo signee for sure as recently as several days ago. Great pick up for the Cardinals.
- The coaching staff lost none of the 18 players who had given their verbals to the former coaching staff and picked up a few additional ones. To lose no one in a recruiting class given a coaching change is a great feat.
- This class is most likely not complete. I would expect a couple more signings, whether they be players interested in the Cardinals all along, or players who, for whatever reason, lose their scholarship offer at a bigger school. If it gets no better, it's still a tremendous class for BSU and in the running for best in the conference.
