Analysis

There are lots of impact players in the 2010 class, however the biggest piece of the puzzle is the defensive tackle class. None of the four signees are with the team. This is why the Beavers saw a large JUCO class in 2013.

Sean Mannion and Scott Crichton were the early bright spots in this class, but Connor Hamlett, Donell Alexander, Trevor Romaine, Ryan Murphy, and Terron Ward have all joined them as major contributors to the squad.

Four-star linebacker Shaydon Akuna also looks to make his move, but to date has not lived up to his recruiting hype.

Overall, the players who qualified and are still with the program are contributing or have a chance to make an impact over the next two years.
