Coach Bonamego has been extremely busy on the recruiting trail so far as his program just landed their 15th commitment for their 2017 recruiting class. Currently, their class ranks 24th best among FBS programs which is ranked higher than powerhouse programs such as USC, Florida, Stanford, and Texas A&M. Is this likely to last? No, however it definitely shows that the future is bright in Mt. Pleasant. This class has been built locally as they currently have 10 in-state recruits committed.
