The Fighting Scots bring in another large recruiting class with 12 incoming freshmen committed.  Two of the commits were state finalists in 2018 - D4 state champ Jayce Kuehnlein an D1 runner-up Jacob Ransom.  Alma also brings in two transfers in 2015 NJCAA All-American Zack Cooper and Peter Nicaj.  It is part of a rebuilding effort of a roster that contains 80% freshman.  

While the roster is young, Coach Jeremiah Tobias did crown an All-American last year with sophomore Brendan Ladd placing 6th at 141 pounds.  Ladd became the fifth All-American in program history and recorded the winningest season in school history.  That experience mixed with the influx of young talent should help the development process and have fans excited about the future of the program.
