    I hope the S&C coach can put some weight on them.

    Noted several of the WRs and ATH also have played QB. Glad to see this after last year's attrition at this position. Sure hope we are good to go at that position this year.

    Lots of Alabama guys on that list. Hope UNA can do something with them.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    If I recall correctly they have tons of talent from those kids and used it quite well when we were division II and played them.

    I think they can. Coach Willis worked on finding guys with longer frames so they could put on the weight needed for D1.

    In the past, they may have recruited a 6ft 2 295lb and he was as big as he was going to be.

    I was told we lost a few top of the list recruits just because we are not playing for any championships for the next few years. Coach Willis is extremely optimistic about the future in recruiting in FCS with UNA. But I'm looking forward to this year. Roar Lions

    UNA is blessed to be in an area where there's so great high school football played. Just in the shoals area you have several high school programs like Muscle Shoals, Deshler, Brooks, Russellville, Florence and others who usually contend for state titles in their respective classifications.

    How long does UNA have before they're eligible for the FCS playoffs? If its only 2 years that should not have scared recruits off seeing as though they could have redshirted in 2018 and by their R-Sophomore year been competing for conference and national championships.
