Recruiting: Michigan LB Samih Beydoun switches from Wolverines to Army

A visit to West Point Friday swayed Catholic Central (Detroit) linebacker Samih Beydoun’s college decision.

Beydoun, who was committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on, announced his pledge to Army Friday night.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity that I’ve always considered,” said Beydoun Friday night. “Going to West Point is definitely bigger than football and I fell in love with the staff today. I don’t think there is better fit out there for me. It is the highest of honors.”

Army is recruiting the 6-foot, 220-pound Beydoun to play rush linebacker. Beydoun said he could have waited until the winter to be on scholarship at Michigan. Army plays at Michigan on Sept. 7.

Beydoun is likely to attend Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J. as a prep year in the fall.

Christiansen, Hopkins, Riley 2019 captains

Senior linebacker Cole Christiansen, senior quarterback Kelvin Hopkins and senior cornerback Elijah Riley were voted as 2019 captains by their teammates

Christansen, a two-year starter, is the third Army player in the last 10 years to be named captain in his junior and senior seasons.

Hopkins enters his second season as starting quarterback. He helped Army to an academy-record 11 wins, becoming the first Army player to rush for 1,000 yards (1,017) and pass for 1,000 yards (1,026) in the same season.

Riley, a three-year starter, has 122 tackles and four interceptions in his career. He helped Army hold Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown, who is expected to be one of the top wide receivers in this month’s NFL draft, without catch last season.

Cam Thomas transfers to Jacksonville University

Cam Thomas, Army’s No. 2 quarterback in 2018, will continue operating the triple option at his next college football home. Thomas, a sophomore, announced Wednesday that he will transfer to Division I-AA Jacksonville University in the fall. Thomas’ offensive coordinator at Jacksonville will be none other than Trent Steelman, Army’s all-time leader in rushing touchdowns (45) and rushing yards (3,320) for a quarterback. Ian Shields, Army’s offensive coordinator under Rich Ellerson from 2009-13, is Jacksonville’s head coach. Thomas proved to be a more than serviceable backup to Kelvin Hopkins in 2018. He rushed for 306 yards and three touchdowns in eight games for the Black Knights including a 31-30 double-overtime win over Miami (Ohio) in his only career start. Thomas rushed for a career-high 137 yards against Miami and threw his first career touchdown pass, 15 yards to Jordan Asberry in Army’s 70-14 Armed Forces Bowl victory over Houston. Thomas posted that he was leaving Army in January. Sophomore Christian Anderson and freshmen Jabari Laws and Tyhier Tyler continue to compete in spring practice for the vacancy left by Thomas. Jacksonville has become a destination for former Army coaches, players and commits. Tom Simi, Army’s offensive line coach in 2013 and the head coach at Army Prep from 2009-12, is Jacksonville’s offensive line coach. Wade Green, who coached defense at Army Prep from 2009-17, is Jacksonville’s defensive line coach. Former Army offensive lineman Lofi Tamasese is a graduate assistant. Fullback Garnett Nicolas and slotback Nasser Clark, who will be sophomores, were Army commits, who played at Army Prep in 2017.

Recruiting: Florida tackle David Hoyt joins 2020 class

David Hoyt’s wish or dream of attending West Point started at an early age.

How early?

“I’ve been thinking about it since I was 5,” said Hoyt, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound junior tackle of out Tampa (Fla.) Catholic.

Hoyt’s dreams came true Saturday when he committed to Jeff Monken and his staff on a visit. ESPN recruiting list Hoyt as a three-star recruit. Hoyt is ranked a three-star recruit and the 90th-best tackle nationally in the 2020 class by 247 Sports.

“When I was around 13 and Pop Warner started coming to an end, I realized that, ‘My goal really is West Point,'” Hoyt said.

Hoyt left his recruiting open. He received offers from Rutgers and Illinois of the Big Ten Conference as well as Buffalo, Tulane, Western Kentucky, Western Michigan, Ohio, Toledo, Southern Mississippi and Liberty. But, Hoyt’s visit to West Point sealed his decision.

“After going around the school, I realized that this truly is where I want to be,” Hoyt said.

“Getting a top education, getting to be part of the Brotherhood with all of the players and coaches. The guys were awesome people and it really felt like home. Knowing I’m doing something more like being able to serve after is just awesome.”

Hoyt, the first offensive player to commit to Army’s 2020 class, grew up watching the Army-Navy football game. Now, he will be a part of one of college football’s best rivalries.

Hoyt’s uncle, Tim Leone, is a 2004 West Point graduate.

2019 First Spring Practice Blog

“It’s supposed to be spring practice, not winter practice,” Army coach Jeff Monken said about halfway through the Black Knights’ first session since defeating Houston 70-14 in the Armed Forces Bowl and finishing with an 11-2 record and No. 19 Associated Press ranking.

Temperatures were in the mid-20s with a real feel in the teens Thursday afternoon into early evening. Monken gave his players a period to warm up inside the Foley Athletic Center at the midway point of practice.

Junior linebacker Ryan Parker, who is competing for the will linebacker position opened by the graduation of James Nachtigal, was impressed with the energy considering players were coming off Fourth Quarter Warriors drills, which start at 5:35 a.m. for an hour, earlier in the week.

“We’ve been going through that and everybody is beat down and leaning on each other to get back out,” Parker said. “We go out there today and I couldn’t say enough about how well we performed out there and how hard that we went even with being tired and worn out from school.”

Parker said the team got the most out of its only practice before spring break. Army returns to the field on March 19.

“I think that’s how we all feel,” Parker said. “This is the start. There’s a lot of guys getting a lot of reps and there’s a lot of opportunities out there (in the spring) and everybody felt that today and was able to get after it.”

Junior quarterback Kelvin Hopkins said Thursday was, “one of the best first practices of any period of camp that we’ve ever had – spring ball or fall camp – where everybody came in and was ready to work and the energy level was up there.”

“You can gauge how people are involved and how excited people are for the season,” Hopkins said.

Hopkins, who was running on the side, was one of the many players limited or not participating in practice due to muscle pulls or strains from Fourth Quarter Warrior drills.

“We had a bunch of guys pulled their hamstrings,” Monken said. “We got about eight or nine hamstring pulls right now on guys that we were expected to have practice.”

Monken said sophomore guard Peyton Reeder (shoulder), sophomore linebacker Gavin Bassett, sophomore tight end Jake Lauer (knee) and freshman tackle Kam Holloway are among the players that will participate in spring practice due to injury.

Reeder, who started 11 games at right guard last season, would have been one of the players getting snaps at center to replace three-year starter Bryce Holland.

Junior Jack Sides, who started the Armed Forces Bowl at right guard for an injured Reeder, opened spring as Army’s first-team center.

“He (Sides) has really, really grown as a player for us,” Monken said. “I’m really, really proud for him and I’m glad for him. He’s worked hard. He’s kind of like Austin Schuffert (a 2018 senior tackle). He’s paid his dues and he’s finally in position to do it.”

Monken said freshman Dean Powell and junior Will Huff will also get some work at center in the spring.

Army’s first-team offensive line was Sides, sophomore left tackle Luke McCleery, returning starting junior left guard Jaxson Deaton, Powell at right guard and sophomore right tackle Alex Herndon. Sophomore starting right tackle JB Hunter missed practice due to illness.

Sophomore Christian Anderson and freshmen Jabari Laws, Mike Mbony and Tyhier Tyler took reps at quarterback. Freshman Clay Czyzynski, a scout-team quarterback last season, has moved to fullback.

Freshman Cade Barnard was running with top fullbacks Connor Slomka and Sandon McCoy.

Recruiting: Georgia kicker Albert Jang first 2020 commit

Peachtree Ridge junior punter-kicker Albert Jang announced his commitment to Army Friday.

Jang is the first member of Army’s 2020 recruiting class. The Georgia Sports Writers Association named Jang a first-team, all-state punter for the 2018 season. Jang averaged 45 yards per punt as a junior.

“Playing at this school has been my biggest dream and goal since middle school and that is why I am so excited to announce my commitment to continue my football and academic career at the United States Military Academy,” Jang said in a Twitter post.

Chris Sailer Kicking ranks the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Jang the 9th-best punter and 41st-best kicker of the 2020 class.

2019 Spring Practice Questions: Who will be Army’s No. 2 QB

Hard to believe that the opening of Army football spring practice is just one week away.

One of the biggest questions for the Black Knights this spring is who will back up starting quarterback Kelvin Hopkins.

Sophomore Cam Thomas, who was Army’s No. 2 quarterback and started in a win over Miami (Ohio) last season, has moved on.

Sophomore Christian Anderson and freshmen Jabari Laws, Mike Mbony and Tyhier Tyler are expected to received their share of snaps in the spring, coach Jeff Monken said earlier this month. Laws was moved to slotback to strengthen depth near the end of last season but is returning under center.

Freshman Clay Czyzynski is a wild card. Czyzynski impressed as a scout-team quarterback last season. When asked about Czyzynski’s position in the future, Monken said, “Not sure.”

“Not sure if he’s a D-back,” Monken said. “He’s got something about him but I don’t know what he is going to be. He’s not fast enough to be a guy (that you say), ‘This guy is heck of athlete and he runs the option and get himself loose nobody is going to catch him.’ He’s big but he’s got to run more physical that’s something that we have talked to him about. Be more of a B-back type quarterback. That’s his body type so he has to do that. Perhaps, maybe it’s playing B-back (fullback) if he can play more physical. I certainly think it’s up to him. I really like him and we’ll see how spring goes.”

Monken on new assistants Matt Hachmann and Kevin Lewis

Outside linebackers coach Matt Hachmann and defensive line coach Kevin Lewis will take the field for the first time as members of Army’s staff when the Black Knights open spring practice on March 7.

Coach Jeff Monken discussed the additions to his staff in an interview last week.

Hachmann was recommended to Monken by John Loose, Army’s new defensive coordinator. He worked under Loose for eight years at Lafayette. Hachmann was Stony Brook’s linebackers coach the last two seasons.

“John said, ‘Coach, if you are going to hire me as a DC, there’s a guy that I would really like you to think about hiring and it’s Matt Hachman,” Monken said. “He talked to me about him. Matt has had a lot of success as a defensive coordinator himself.

“He was at Towson. They played very good defense at Towson and they went to the (2013 FCS) national championship while he was there. I think that’s going to be a good mix and it’s important to the coordinators to have guys that they trust that they have worked with and they know speak the same language as them.”

Lewis, who coached William & Mary’s defensive line the last five seasons, was highly recommended by Dartmouth defensive coordinator Don Dobes.

“He’s got experience at schools from an academic standpoint that are a lot like ours,” Monken said. “William & Mary is a high academic school. He was at Dartmouth and did a really good job at Dartmouth. I’ve known Don Dobes for many years. John Loose and Don are very good friends. He couldn’t have given him a higher recommendation.”

Lewis will recruit Virginia, an area that departing defensive coordinator Jay Bateman recruited well over the last five seasons. He played his prep football at Varina High School in Richmond and was a three-year starter at Virginia Tech, helping the Hokies to the 2004 Atlantic Coast Conference championship and four bowl games. Lewis replaces Chad Wilt, who is now Cincinnati’s defensive line coach. Wilt was also a strong recruiter in Maryland.

“He’s recruited that Virginia, Maryland, DC area for a long time,” Monken said of Lewis. “Jay left that area as a recruiter and that’s really been a fruitful area for us. So we send K-Lew right back in there. I think he’s a real good d-line coach. He has a really good personality and I think he will be good fit for the team.”

Signing Day Update: Top Kentucky RB Anthony Adkins commits to Army

Army landed one of the top recruits in its 2019 class when LaRue County (Ky.) running back Anthony Adkins announced his commitment on the morning of Signing Day Wednesday.

Adkins, an USA Today second-team all-state linebacker, was originally committed to Louisville of the Atlantic Coast Conference. He announced his decommitment from Louisville on Dec. 9 and reopened his recruitment. Army was the first to offer the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Adkins in June 2018. Adkins also received offers from Western Kentucky, Bowling Green and Georgia State. He rushed for 1,949 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2018.

Spring Valley (S.C.) linebacker Skylar Mack announced his commitment to Army Wednesday morning. Mack’s senior year was cut short by injury early in the season.

Kemp (Texas) linebacker Boomer Irvin will sign his certificate of commitment today after announcing his commitment to Army Tuesday night.
