As New UTEP head football coach Dana Dimel begins the recruiting process for the 2018 season, he released the following statement Wednesday morning:
“We’re pleased to say that the initial stages of our recruiting process are going well. The first step that we have taken is to evaluate the personnel within the program. This has allowed us to address our needs,” said Dimel.
“The next step was to get a good feel on numbers we have in each class. This allows us to have a plan for balancing our numbers in the future. There are several recruits across Texas and the country that we have had conversations and contacts with. We have chosen not to sign any so we can further get to know them and allow them to officially visit our campus in January. Some of these recruits could be mid-year transfers. We are moving swiftly but are doing our due diligence. Each decision is based on the long-term future of our program.”
Football coaches will once again hit the recruiting trail from Jan. 12-Feb. 3. National signing day is Wednesday, Feb. 7.
