Anybody read or hear anything on potential recruits committing? The only one I've seen so far is Angus McClure's son.

The only other ones I've seen are Marcus Aponte from St. Mary's and Brandon Rupchock from Folsom. Very few seniors leaving this year and don't know about attrition yet.

First of all...thanks Green Army for the update on the recruiting and commitment trail.

I found this article on why Jarrell Anderson chose Sac State. Looks like a nice catch for Sac State. A three star recruit from Seattle, Wa.

Great story on Anderson. I think that's why I turned my attitude on Sears near midseason (winning of course the main reason). Just seeing the team in person, one could tell how close the players were, they all seemed to love playing with each other. It had a real family vibe.

Anytime. Anything to keep the Hornets Legion informed :thumb:

And yes, agreed! Anytime we're able to poach a scholarship player from FBS schools, that's a huge win! :nod:

Today is the start of the early signing period and I goes through Friday. The Hornets just received a commitment from David Perales from Merced JC. He will be transferring in as a sophomore. He had 14 sacks as freshman for the Merced. Here is a nice article on him. This article was written before his bowl game.

So four 2 star recruits (5 when/if Aponte signs) and one 3 star recruit inked in the early signing period...yup, this program is "still paying" for past transgressions on the recruiting trail. :lol:

Credit to Sears and Co for continuing to get it done on the recruiting trail. :clap:

The Anderson pickup is ridiculous - we don’t use the TE a whole lot, but this kid will be a contributor right away on the outside and red zone anyhow with his frame. His film is very impressive!

Armon Bailey a 3 star recruit from Vanden High School has committed to the Hornets. He is an OLB. He had offers from Idaho and Hawaii. He had some interest from Fresno St and Washington. Another nice addition to the program.

About as good as you can expect Sears and Co. to do in the area. Kudos... Now let’s see ‘em on the field!

Alrighty, it's national signing day. I'm pretty sure there's a direct correlation between this recruiting class and the on-field success of last year. A few solid 2-3 stars with other real* offers. What I like the most are the JUCO transfers, that's IMMEDIATE help for this upcoming year as Coach Sears and company makes a push for the Big Sky title!
