Recruiting Focus: The DL
Since roughly the last game was played last season, we've been told that the coaching staff would focus their attention on fortifying the defensive line this recruiting year. Well, they did. In doing so, we may have as much depth to draw from, going into a season, as we've had in quite some time. Five JC transfers and 3 highschool graduates (including Lake City All-State linbacker Nick Pilon) were added to the Vandal roster this recruiting season. Below is a closer look at each of the athletes brought in to shore up what many believe was the "weakest link" on last year's defense.
Interior Defensive Linemen:
Ryan Atoe, 6-2, 314, College of the Redwoods
Jason Jones, 6-4, 325, Pasadena City College
Johnny Parra, 6-3, 310, Southwestern College
Geoff Zuber, 6-4, 272, Gold Beach High School
Kelly Talavou, 6-2, 310, Fountain Valley High School
Nick Pilon, 6-4, 231, Lake City High School
Kody Kraus, 6-3, 228, Ricks College
Kelly Nead, 6-4, 236, Ricks College
