Hauptmann, left, (6-5, 318 pounds) is a highly regarded interior lineman out of Beverly Hills. CH played at the College of the Canyons last season and was being pursued by FIU, UCLA, Cal, Washington, Arizona State, Nebraska, Syracuse and Oregon.
CH is likely to play left tackle at FIU alongside Cedric Mack at left guard and Brad Serini at center give FIU plenty of brawn on the line. Add to that another year of development for last year's freshmen such as Dave Istanich and Rupert Bryan and sophomores, plus incoming Ceedrick Davis (305 pounds) and suddenly the O-Line prospects look much more solid.
CH begins his FIU career as a sophomore so he has 3 years of eligibility left and since he's coming from a JUCO he does not have to sit out a season.
Popular questions posed by chiapanther in the latest GPP poll questions. The poll has been up for just 2 days and already more than 200 votes on which FIU men and women's teams will have the most successful seasons next year. As of this post, the baseball team has a slight edge on basketball and football in the men's question. While the volleyball team has more than half the votes to lead the women's question thus far. Poll is still open.
In those poll questions, the GPP readership increased by 1 state and we're now 4 states away from completing the GPP's tour of the USA. A reader in Kenai, Alaska voted for the baseball team......hmm wonder which of the 4 players from FIU baseball is in Kenai right now.
Let's update the scorecard....
