“I think we’re evaluating the right kids,” said head coach Danny Gonzales. “We had a young man in here named General Booty that we were recruiting that nobody was recruiting until we start recruiting him and then he ends up at Oklahoma. Jake Jensen, we have him committed. We’re going to fight to hang on to him until June first, when school starts. We got some big schools knocking on his door. We have an offensive lineman that we’re recruiting that committed to us that Mississippi State offered last night. Right now, he’s staying in our backyard so we’ll see. So we’re recruiting the right kids. We got to convince them to come to New Mexico and then, hopefully, try and keep them.”
