Recruiting scorecard for Kennesaw State


Commitments: 11

Expected class size: 22

Star recruit: Zach Taisler, a 6-3, 215-pound linebacker who led Houston County this season with 90 tackles, including six tackles for losses.

News of the week: Six new players started classes this week. This group included four junior-college players and two transfers, including former Middle Tennessee defensive end Matthew Foster of Cook County.

Key visitors this weekend: None

What to worry about: Most colleges sign one quarterback per class, but Kennesaw State won't do that this year, according to coach Brian Bohannon. "We signed three quarterbacks a year ago, and we're really pleased with those guys and what they're doing. So we're going to skip this class, and then we'll take a quarterback in every class after that."

Quote of the week: "We're going to (bring in) approximately 22 kids this year. Now we want 14 of those to be transfers. So what we're trying to do is get some age on our football team with being a new program … then we're going to sign approximately eight high school kids." — Bohannon

Coming up next: The Owls will entertain around a dozen recruits Jan. 23.
