#2 and #136. I can't put my finger on it but something just doesn't sit well with me with this Demens signing. Like, why the hell is he coming to Maine?? Anyone else feel like this? I'll be surprised if he really makes out to AND stays in Orono. I really hope I'm wrong.

Maybe this will make you feel better Beardown, this is the breakdown by league and we managed just 6th place with 4 of the top 50 picks in the CAA. :(
I guess I would not put that much stock in the ratings of recruits as we have been at the bottom of FCS and we just ended up 4th in the country. Let's just be happy we have two real talented LB's and a couple of other noteworthy players. This really shows the importance of turning these recruits into good football players is up to the coaching staff.

the thing with the scouting service rankings is that they rely on camps to generate their rankings of 2 star recruits or better. there are a ton of kids who are 2 star or very nearly 2 star that just don't attend enough camps to get ranked. If Maine is recruiting international kids or lesser known "through the cracks" players then it makes sense we aren't going to be ranked as highly. also, it's not surprising that Maine isn't out recruiting some of the more established FCS programs in our conference.

Hero Sports started rating FCS recruits and teams in 2016 and it should be no surprise that Maine never cracked the top 50 of FCS for teams and but what was surprising we had two top players in the top 300 in last years class.
Matthisas Staalose an OL at #236 and Donnell Henriquez at #196 a DB. Doesn't look like either saw any action this past year.
So bottom line this years class is the strongest that Maine has had at #46 in FCS but guess I would not give much creedence in a top recruiting class leading to a good season(Hero sports ratings at least). JSU who we destroyed in our first playoff game has been in the top tier of recruiting in each of the past 4 years ;)
It is also interesting to note that Yale has 5-8 players each year in the top 300 as well.

Maine signs transfer/JUCO WR Jacob Hennie

Tweet: https://twitter.com/BlackBearsFB/status ... 3857972224
Press Release: https://goblackbears.com/news/2019/6/13 ... ennie.aspx
Hudl: https://www.hudl.com/profile/2020373/Jacob-Hennie

Analysis: Reminds me a lot of another WR we signed in this cycle, Michael Monios. Small-ish guys, but quick twitch. Would like to have seen a bit more of a complete route tree in the hudl tape to get a sense of what he's capable of, but who knows what he was asked to do within the offense. Seems like he has the requisite athleticism to compete for playing time while in Orono.

Hennie looks very similiar to other WR's we have on the roster and I count 10WR's and 5 TE's on the roster so think we should all set on that end.
I was checking this frosh class I did not see Kolin Demens LB anywhere on the roster. He was the highest rated recruit that Maine had ever signed with multiple FBS offers. Anyone know if he is still with us???

He's listed as #25 on the roster. https://goblackbears.com/roster.aspx?path=football

Looks like there are a few new names that weren't part of the original signing class, the last three of which are all Maine HS/Prep School players!:

Jaylon Tucker (WR/SS http://www.hudl.com/profile/4899059/Jaylon-Tucker)
Anthony Griffin (T https://www.hudl.com/profile/5382351/Anthony-Griffin)
Braxton Cassidy (G/DT https://www.hudl.com/profile/6049485/Braxton-Cassidy)
Gordon Beckwith (RB/LB https://www.hudl.com/profile/9921858/Gordon-Beckwith)

It looks like Jalik Heyward is also no longer with the team. Along with Saunders, this is a tough blow from that true Freshman class, considering he played and looked more than capable.

UMSF, my bad on Demens, guess I wasn't looking in the 20's for a LB.
Could this be one of the best skilled teams Maine has had?
