Coach Jay Hopson and the Southern Miss staff are seeking to continue to expand their recruiting horizons. Mississippi and staying in state will remain the priority, but they have made it clear they are willing to try and get into areas that the Golden Eagle program have not typically had success. Namely, south Florida and the Miami area.
The Eagles over the years have signed players in the panhandle of Florida that have had solid careers in the black and gold, and last season they went into Orlando to nab Andre Hale, RB, from the class of 2016.
We haven't seen the type of aggressive offers to the sunshine state, however, until the last few weeks from the Southern Miss staff. Coach Pecoraro and Coach Nicholson are doing most of the work in that state, and we expect Dan Disch to throw his name out there too with his connections.
We will be watching closely to see how many of these prospects the Eagles can get on campus. For now though, it has certainly been a good start in a state that has plenty of talent to go around. Here is a list of current offers that we've been able to confirm in Florida, and if we've interviewed them, it will be below their player card...
