Football Recruiting Update

The UTEP football team received its 14th official verbal commitment today, adding Baltimore's (Dunbar HS) Ernest Hawkins to the 2012 class. The 6'0 215 lb OLB was an ESPN 2 Star Athlete, and ranked 150th best OLB in the country. Hawkins will be playing alongside high school teammate Terrence Williams, a 5'10 170 lb ATH, who also gave the Miners a verbal commitment earlier in the recruiting period. Also, Salt Lake Tribune blog writer Tony Jones is reporting that Paul Franklin, a 6'0 206 lb RB out of Dallas, TX will not be a Utah State Aggie next year. Franklin had committed just days ago, but apparently the USU coaching staff didn't appreciate the fact that he had "entertained a home visit from UTEP" on Monday. If Franklin will not be an Aggie, he may turn out to be a nice late pick up for the Miners. While not given a star grading or position rank by ESPN, they do say he is a speedy "sleeper" back who has gone under the radar. At 6'0 206 lb, with 4.4 speed, he's got some serious potential.
