Bloomington, IN—Here are four potential impact newcomers for the Florida International Panthers

Cody Bowes, Right Guard

FIU may have one of the most experienced teams coming back in 2017, but there are opportunities for freshman to crack the two-deep, especially along the offensive line. Bowes was FIU’s second-highest rated commit in the 2017 class and is already penciled into the backup right guard position. The 6’4”/280-pound lineman has the size to play immediately in Conference USA and FIU head coach Butch Davis may have a quick hook if upper classmen don’t perform well.

Willa Pierre, Right Tackle

Willa Pierre is another three-star offensive line commit, who will find his way into the FIU two-deep at tackle. FIU could use his 6’3”/288-pound frame to establish some offensive line depth and to jump start the run game.

Dorian Hall, Athlete

Hall is FIU’s highest rated commit in the 2017 class and does not have a real position, but it’ll be hard to keep this talent on the sideline as the Panthers needs as many explosive offensive players as possible. Hall, at 6’4” and 200 pounds, played both wide receiver and safety in high school but it is unclear what side of the ball he will be used on in 2017.

Noah Curtis, Defensive End

The Golden Panthers need to get pressure on the quarterback in 2017 and defensive end Noah Curtis could be the injection of talent needed at that position to create havoc in the offensive backfield. He has the length at 6’6” of a great defensive end, but needs to fill out, as he weighs just 225 pounds.
