FAU Continues To Attract Florida Talent

There are many college football programs in the state of Florida who attacks the month of June, but very few did it the way Florida Atlantic did in 2023.

From the first day, getting football talent and families on campus was a priority for head coach Tom Herman and his staff.

While FAU has long made the state a priority when it comes to recruiting, they never had the facilities to attract student/athletes to Boca Raton.

From special teams events to 7-on-7 and team camps, this is a program that really hit the summer hard and utilized every day of the month before shutting things down in July. The hard work and planning certainly paid off as the 2024 recruiting class was one of the best they have had – and the state of Florida was a major target.

With an opportunity to bring in south Florida talent along with hitting other areas of the Sunshine State, they kept pace with the other schools they compete for prospects with.

Here is a look at those Florida high school standouts who are expected to lift the Owls to the next level:

Kyle Boylston, Athlete, Jacksonville Trinity Christian
