Memphis, TN-Tigers coach Justin Fuente is excited about his second recruiting class at Memphis.

“I want to thank a few people. I’d like to start off thanking Tom Bowen for his help and always being accessible to us as a staff. I want to thank the faculty and staff at the University of Memphis. Many of them shared their Saturday mornings with us and came over and spoke about their field of study and their experiences. Bob Baker in academics does a great job and we certainly appreciate his work. Sherri Schwartz and the girls up front do a great job. I want to thank our staff and their wives. There’s a lot of work that goes into this and a lot of sacrifices on the home front.

“We’re excited about this signing class. I think it’s another step in the right direction to building our football program. We had a pretty big emphasis on offensive lineman and skill kids on offense and defensive backfield and linebackers on defense. We had to fill a few holes in the specialty area and the kicking game. We look forward to getting them in the program and putting them to work. “
