The Georgia Southern Eagles could be on their way to again luring in the Sun Belt Conference's top recruiting class. A huge weekend just wrapped up where high-profile prospects visited Statesboro and new head coach Tyson Summers showed he knows how to run the show.

Of course, nothing is set in stone until national signing day. The Eagles lost a few of their prospects at the last minute to programs from the SEC and Big 10 in 2015. Still, there's more than enough reason to be excited about the big-time commits Georgia Southern has landed, with the class currently ranked No. 1 in the SBC by 247 Sports.

If you're looking to follow some of the action via Twitter check out the hashtag #Swoop16. (But please don't tweet at recruits). (Seriously).

While stars don't mean a ton to me, watching highlights of these guys dominating their high school competition is pretty fun. Thus, we bring you film:

Traver Vliem

One aspect of college football many fans love is that the majority of players come from the local area or at least a neighboring state. Vliem, a 6-4, 240-pound three-star prospect, will be a welcome exception to the rule for Eagles fans. The Midland, Texas defensive end committed following the weekend visit and chose GS over teams like Boise State, Fresno State and UCF:

Todd Bradley

The Valdosta High product was the first commit of the entire class, naming his school way back on April 29. He's another three-star, an outside linebacker who stands 5-10, 210 pounds. Offer list includes Charlotte, Georgia State and Troy:

Yafari "Shai" Werts

A two-star quarterback, Werts aims to become the next Kevin Ellison or Jayson Foster. Werts, out of Newberry South Carolina, is 6-0, 184 pounds and holds offers from Appalachian State and Tulane:

Tori Delesline

Last one for today. Delesline hails from Simpsonville, South Carolina's Hillcrest High. He's a 6-2, 200-pound outside linebacker, a three-star commit, and has offers from the likes of Appalachian State, Marshall and Old Dominion:

I'll put together a few more of these before signing day. In the mean time, commence daydreaming about these guys tearing up the competition for the Blue and White.
