Kent State Picks Up A Pair Of Commits For 2014 Class

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Paul Haynes has had a rough going on the recruiting trail so far this season. His 2014 recruiting class currently ranks as the worst in the MAC according to 247Sports' composite rankings, even behind an EMU class that until recently had just four verbals. But Haynes recently picked up a pair of commits that should go a long way towards helping out his 2014 class.

According to 247sports, on Sunday Haynes received a commitment from Knoch high School (Saxonburg, PA) offensive tackles Connor Shinsky, and Monday afternoon he got a commitment from Winton Woods High School (Cincinnati) cornerback Jerrell Foster.

Shinsky is unranked by any major scouting service, and at 249 pounds is incredibly undersized for an offensive lineman. But his 6-foot-6 inch frame means he has plenty of room to fill out, and could develop into a good prospect on the Golden Flashes' offensive line. His only other FBS offer was from UTEP, but he received some interest from Bowling Green. Shinsky joins 2-star offensive tackle Stefano Millin (also undersized at just 250 pounds) as the only offensive line commits in Kent State's 2014 class.

Foster is a much more promising commitment for Kent state fans. A 3-star (composite) recruit, he had offers from Ball State and Pitt as well, according to Rivals.com. At 5-foot-11, 175-pounds, he's not a giant, but is a good size for a young cornerback. He's also the second highest rated recruit, via 247Sports' composite rankings, in the Flashes' 2014 class, behind only athlete Reggie Howard. a Top-100 commit, Foster provides the Flashes with a solid addition in the secondary, and is the only cornerback currently included in the 2014 class for Kent State.
