The Roadrunner coaching staff was busy this off-season, trying to replace 36 scholarship positions after saying good-bye to the largest senior group in the country. They began by searching for talent in the JUCO ranks and managed to land 5 solid players who should come in and compete for starting positions.
Our Top JUCO Recruits
Roadrunner Nation should be super excited to get players like DT Vontrell Williams, originally a 3 star DT from Mt.Carmel HS in Chicago, who played a season at Illinois before going back to the JUCO ranks at Butler County CC. At 325 lbs., Williams should see time next to 315 lb. Brian Price at the DT position to make them one of the toughest DT tandems in the conference.
But the player that I am pumped about is the “Back in Black” pictured above, RB Corbin White! This 225 lb bruiser with 4.5 speed could be the Marshawn Lynch of Conference USA! That's right! Our very own “Beast Mode” baby! (Compare Corbin's video below)
So What's Missing?
With four of these JUCO players on the defensive side and future super star Corbin as the only offensive player recruited, the big eyesore on this list was, once again, not a single JUCO Offensive Linemen in this year's recruiting season.
With only 1 returning starter on the offensive line coming back from last year's season and a new offensive line coach yet to be named, the inability to get any JUCO help on the offensive line will put plenty of pressure on the offense this season. Not to mention pressure on the coaching staff and the next starting quarterback. Especially when we have Sophomore and Freshman QB's projected as our starters this year.
Here are video highlights of the 2015 JUCO recruits who signed and are currently enrolled at UTSA.
