I believe 6’6/250 DE/DT Kameron Burns, from Wakulla FL has committed to FIU.

Judging from his Twitter, it appears you are correct. I can't find much info on him from any recruiting agencies.

Me neither. He did have 6 sacks and forty something tackles this past season.

Those aren't bad numbers, and he has some good height, decent size.

I wouldn't get my hopes on him signing. I'm pretty sure he's signing with Louisville. I trust Butch will find the right guy.

So in an interesting development, 247 Sports just so happened to update with a new "top target." It's local product Randy Charlton, a consensus 3-star DE from Miami Southridge Senior High. I can't confirm this anywhere else, but this writer claims Charlton apparently took a visit to FIU on Dec 2:



All the chatter on Twitter is him between either IU or Syracuse, but his personal Tweets aren't necessarily very pro either one. I think he is a much more likely surprise than a guy like Tutu Atwell, who seems pretty sold on Louisville.


Another big time surprise, staying home and playing for your FIU Panthers.

Something to keep an eye on, a few of the players we’ve been linked to did not sign today.

WR Calvin Lockett (Iowa commit)
OL Willie Canty
OL Hamilton Hall
OL Troy Ingle (WKU Commit)
WR Cadarius Gaskin
ATH Teja Young
DE Kenny Turnier

Many more just don’t remember now.

Not saying we’ll sign any of them, just bringing up they havent signed yet.

This is a good list. I wonder if the staff was waiting to see what happened with Charlton before letting Turnier sign? I could see another LB, OL, DB, and WR signing.

Alright, given what happened last night I hope that Butch and company go hard at a JC QB, here are the remaining uncommitted/unsigned prospects.

Kai Locksley 6'4 205lbs out of Iowa Western CC. 0.8400
De'Abrie Smith 6'1 200lbs out of College of the Desert 0.7889

Here are some realistic High School options:

Clayton Tune 6'2.5 200lbs from Hebron TX 0.8601
Wyatt Rector 6'4 220lbs from Leesburg FL 0.8492
Riley Smith 6'5 210lbs from Jacksonville FL 0.9491
Zadock Dinkelman 6'4.5 228lbs from Somerset TX 0.8467
Cordell Littlejohn 6'4 190lbs from Roswell GA 0.8409
Zack Annextad 6'2.5 202lbs from Bradenton FL 0.8355

None of these kids report an FIU offer. If i'm Butch I have every single offensive coach evaluate these kids over the holidays and them promise the sky to the ones we believe can start next season. We can honestly tell most of these kids that they would be the favorites to start from day one.

I agree, I think we really need to look at QB options. I said the same thing earlier and my suspicions are confirmed.

Butch knew McGough would be gone after this year. He also knew what he had with MA and CA. Lynum must be their top choice (probably after Bradley). They had all year to go out and recruit a new QB. You would think our program would be easy to sell a QB on considering the job is totally wide open. They might bring in a JC guy, but we now have two other options than MA and CA with Wiggins and Lynum. Assuming we can only sign 25 guys, we don’t have too many more slots left... we could still use another LB or two in my opinion, plus another DB.

I too agree program is headed in great direction. QB didnt get hurt bowl game headlines would have read differently. I think everyone is a firm believer Coach Davis knows his stuff. Caleb Lynum is a steal at QB. Great height, size, speed, & vision. In different articles its said he is smart and has size 10 hands at 17/18 years old.
