As we all know the roster is always in flux. So the 'players we already have' should be mostly correct but could be missing someone, or have someone that left the program.
As for the offers? I check several sites to try and keep up but a lot of this goes on in the backgroud.

After next season The Bulls will still have about five quarterbacks on the roster and they will still tilt towards the young side of things. It's good practice to bring in at least one guy who you think can run the show, so expect one or two commits from Quarterbacks. Perhaps some of them will be destined for other spots on the team, like Mason Schreck, and Jordan Johnson signed up for this season.
The Bulls almost as young in the offensive backfield than they are at QB. With two promising sophomores and a couple of more years to get out of Oliver. UB Will loose a little after this season with the departure of Gill and after 2013 the lose almost everyone who currently has meaningful game experience.
Like the half backs this is a young unit. Two more seasons for Neutz and Lee along with six other under classmen (including Marcus McGill) The Bulls probabaly want to pull two, maybe three wideouts in this years class to prepare for 2014 when Neutz and company are gone.
Buffalo enters this season with a rather young line. If there are any looming manpower shortages they will be at the center and interior of the line. After his season the Bulls will likely lose two starting linemen and are staring at a loss of at least four key linemen the following year.
Right now there is just one underclassman tight end, this position is in huge need of future depth.
After this season UB will be missing some key parts to their 3-4 defense, if they stay in the 3-4. But the group as a whole is very young. 12 of the 16 players on the line are underclassmen.
The Bulls have spent the past couple of seasons trying to beff up the secondary. 13 underclassmen will enter camp this summer and just one senior.
Quinn and staff have done a decent hob balancing out the linebackers, though they did not hit the position hard this past recruiting season.
