On what looks to be an eventful day we have a small update. Shaun Peterson was given a 73 (3 Star) Rating by ESPN. Shouldn't affect his composite score much.

Also "All State" teams are being announced today, a few panthers got awards including Shaun.

We just added QB transfer James Morgan, should compete for starting job. He probably expects to start this season.

Earlier this week, local stud DE, Jason Mercier, committed to FIU over several P5 schools. The 6'5/240 lineman reportedly chose FIU over offers from Iowa, Illinois, Iowa State, Maryland, Rutgers, NC State, North Carolina, TCU, USF, UCF, Louisville, Pitt, Cincinnati, and several others. Mercier was rated 3-Stars by 247 Sports, Rivals, and ESPN (grade 76).

Welcome to FIU, Jason!

Later on that day, FIU got the commitment from Bowling Green State grad transfer QB, James Morgan. Morgan had struggles with INT's the last seasons at BGSU, but has the intangibles and tools to be a factor. Out of high school was considered a 4-Stars player by ESPN and 247Sports.

Welcome to FIU, James!


This past week, 5'10/175 RB Christian Malloy committed to FIU. The Parkview HS in Lilburn, Georgia star reportedly chose FIU over offers at one time or another from Purdue, Indiana, Northwestern, Navy, Air Force, Toledo, FAU, Tulane, Ball State, several Ivy League schools and others. He is rated by Rivals as a 3-Stars as well as 247 Composite. Reportedly, while only playing 9 games this season, ran for 1,538 yards and 20 TD's, while averaging 12.9 yards per carry and 170.9 yards rushing per game. Was named to Class 7A 2nd Team All State.

Welcome to FIU, Christian!

Looks like we're losing Malloy to GaTech. We still have a great class.

247Sports finally integrated ESPN and Rivals ratings into the composite scores of some of our recruits.

Notable updates,

Jordan Underwood is now a solid 3 Star at .8218, he was a 2 Star before
Shamar Munroe is now a low 3 Star at .8004, he was also a 2 Star before

Zahir Turner went from low to solid 3 Star at .8259
Maurquel Dillard went from low to solid 3 Star at .8257
Caleb Lynum also went up a bit to .8210

Rocky Jaques Louis went from a low 3 Star .8115 to a high 2 Star at .7964 , it looks like 247 re-evaluated him to a lower score of 76.

A lot of our 2 Star players went up a bit but nothing significant .

Jason Mercier went up a bit too at .8418

We are now the 67th ranked class in the nation, after falling to 71. They haven't added Christian Malloy but we all assume he is on the way out.

As expected, Malloy announced he will be signing with Georgia Tech instead of FIU. Wishing the young man the best. Go Panthers!!

Cadarius Gaskin is a 6'3/215 WR/Athlete high 3-Stars Composite rated with a .8601 rating - good for 3rd best at FIU - and consensus 3-Stars 247Sports, ESPN (grade of 78), and Rivals 3-Stars has committed to FIU. The 6-3/215 one time commitment to Kentucky also has had offers from Kentucky, Illinois, Pitt, West Virginia, Syracuse, NC State, Rutgers, UCF, USF, FAU, and Kent State among others. A Palm Beach Post and Sun Sentinel 2nd Team All County as a WR and PBP Honorable Mention All County as a DL, also was named PBP as the #11 overall County rated player, where current FIU commit Jason Mercier is #9. He has a teammate in Corey Gammage, a WR and former Florida commitment, who hasn't committed either, as #3 overall player in the county and who was named the County Player of the Year. So even within his team he wasn't necessarily the #1 target, yet produced a lot for the State runner up team. http://highschoolbuzz.blog.palmbeachpos ... big-board/

Welcome to FIU, Cadarius!!

Still waiting on an official statement from FIU about his signing. It appears he still hasn't signed.

Yup, his signing is, at least, not official yet. He is very committed to FIU, though. We will see if this commitment comes to friction as a signing.

He’s been on the team the past two years. In his tweet he’s complementing Brown for his work on special teams during spring practice.
