Recruiting weekend No. 4: Jang visits

Radson Jang must really like Army football and West Point.

Jang, a center from Kamehameha School in Honolulu, is flying cross country nine hours to make his official visit Saturday morning. He was leaving Honolulu airport around 5 p.m. local time.

Army coach Jeff Monken and his staff have received more than 50 commitments so far. Only five are listed as offensive linemen. Some defensive-line prospects could switch over. But, a commitment from Jang, who is 6-foot-2 and 265, this weekend would certainly add some depth to the recruiting class.

Calvary Day (Ga.) cornerback A.J. Keene, who committed to Army earlier this month, is also on his official visit this weekend.

Yuma Catholic (Ariz.) wide receiver Donovan Rooks postponed his official visit this weekend and is visiting Montana. Rooks received an offer from Air Force this week.

Army picked up its 13th commit from the state of Georgia Thursday in Lambert defensive end-linebacker Will Dunavant. Dunavant had committed to play baseball at Division I Wofford.

Archbishop Wood (Pa.) linebacker Jeff Panara and Highland Park (Texas) safety Boomer Bakich also committed on Thursday. Bakich made his official visit last weekend. He called Monken with his commitment. Bakich is listed at 6-foot-1 and 203 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds according to his Hudl account.

Future schedules: Army talking to Ohio State, Rutgers game moving

Army and Ohio State could meet for the first time in their storied football histories in the near future.

Army athletic director Boo Corrigan confirmed to the Times Herald-Record on Thursday that the academy has had talks with Ohio State about playing a game.

Corrigan said Army wants to have one game against a marquee program a year. Army is playing Penn State on October 3 this year and Notre Dame on Nov. 12, 2016 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

That leaves the 2017 season and beyond for the possible Ohio State game. Army has a home-and-home series scheduled against Oklahoma in September 2018 and 2020.

Ohio State has open dates for games on Sept. 9, 2017 and August 31, 2019.

Army had Buffalo scheduled for a home game on Sept. 9, 2017.

Corrigan said future games against marquee teams will be played away from Michie Stadium.

Neutral-site games are a possibility.

In other scheduling news, Army fans will be happy. The Nov. 21 against Rutgers will be moved from Yankee Stadium to Michie Stadium. It’s just a matter of paperwork.

Army-Navy game not moving

Army athletic director Boo Corrigan said he doesn’t see the Army-Navy game changing its place on the college football schedule in the future.

Army and Navy have played on the second Saturday in December following the week of conference championship since 2009.

A story by Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com on Wednesday said that Navy’s eligibility for a berth in one of the six New Year’s Day bowls could come into question as the academy begins it’s first year in American Athletic Conference.

Under the current system, the highest-ranked conference champion from either the AAC, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference, Mountain West or Sun Belt would have the opportunity to play in the Peach Bowl or Fiesta Bowl this season, according to McMurphy’s story.

The rankings are determined the day after conference championship weekend – one week before the Army-Navy game.

Hypothetically, Navy could be the AAC champion, have the highest ranking going into the Army-Navy, lose to Army and still play in a New Year’s bowl game over teams that may be more deserving.

Keep in mind, Navy’s last appearance in the final Top 25 rankings was No. 24 in 2004.

“Right now, we’ve carved out a special place for the game,” Corrigan said. “It speaks to the history and pageantry of the game. I won’t speak for Chet (Gladchuk, Navy’s athletic director) but from our standpoint that’s a vital piece of the entire game.

“I know what’s in the best interest of us and in the best interest of our cadets and it’s to continue to play on that weekend where we are right now.”

McMurphy reported that both Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson and Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson believe any school playing after the final rankings should be ineligible for the Group of Five’s spot in one of the six New Year’s Day bowls.

Air Force is a member of the Mountain West. Just saying.

The Army-Navy game is contractually scheduled for the second Saturday in December the next four years. The game is televised by CBS.

Adding another sidebar to this story is American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco was instrumental in moving the Army-Navy back one week to its current home while he was the Executive Vice President for Programming for CBS Sports.

Recruiting update: Godwin, Steinhaus, Lee, Walker latest commits

Rowan Godwin comes from a football family.

Joe Godwin, Rowan’s father, played linebacker for Alabama and coach Ray Perkins in the mid-1980′s. He was part of a linebacking corps, which included College Football Hall of Famers Derrick Thomas and Cornelius Bennett.

Rowan will continue the family name at the Football Bowl Subdivision (Division I-A) level.

Godwin was one of the many Army recruits that committed to the Black Knights during or soon after an official visit over the weekend. He played on both the offensive and defensive lines at Providence Christian in Dothan, Ala. Godwin, who is 6-foot-4 and 270, is expected to play on offense at Army, according to the Dothan Eagle.

Milton (Ga.) defensive end Nick Steinhaus (6-1, 235) was committed to Southern Illinois, a Football Championship Subdivision (Division I-AA) team, before his visit. Steinhaus said via direct message that West Point, “was so impressive and a great opportunity” for him. He said he will attend Army Prep in the fall and may get a look at tight end.

Army is stockpiling the smaller, quicker slotbacks that seem to flourish in the Paul Johnson-based option offense. The Black Knights added  Jacobs (Ill.) running back-cornerback Josh Walker and Lake Braddock (Va.) running back Dejoun Lee to its recruiting class Monday.  Walker (5-6, 160) has run the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds. Lee (5-8, 170) has 4.43 speed, according to his Hudl profile.

Calvary Day (Ga.) running back-linebacker Robert Heyward joined his teammate A.J. Keene in Army’s recruiting class Sunday. Heyward gave Army his verbal commitment at the end of his official visit. He’s been described to me as a, “Larry Dixon type of kid,” and a physical player.

Oceanside (Calif.) defensive end Amadeo West and Georgia Military College punter J.D. Mote committed during their official visits over the weekend. Mote is 6-foot-5 and 212 pounds.

Commitment total up to 51 players by my count. Remember more than half of the commits are likely headed to Army Prep in the fall.

Recruiting weekend No. 3

Buford (Ga.) linebacker Konnor Houston, Calvary Day (Ga.) running back/linebacker Robert Heyward  and Bingham (Utah) cornerback Dominieke Jones are among the players visiting Army this weekend.

Houston helped lead Buford to its third straight Class AAAA state title and extend its winning streak to 40 games in 2014. He had a sack in a 55-10 win over St. Pius X in the title game.

Heyward scored 22 touchdowns and made more than 100 tackles for Calvary Day in 2014.

A.J. Keene, Heyward’s high school teammate, has committed to Army. Heyward, who is 6-foot and 195 pounds, is being recruited as a linebacker by Army. He is also being looked at as a running back.

Jones was a starting cornerback for Bingham, which finished No. 8 in USA Today’s final national ranking. He returned two interceptions for touchdowns this season.

Christian Brothers Collegiate (Mo.) running back Calen Taylor, Oceanside (Calif.) defensive end Amadeo West, Mullen (Colo.) cornerback James Jones and Georgia Military College punter J.D. Mote are also visiting West Point this weekend.

Army added Central Catholic (Pa.) center Eric McAllister, Davidson Day (N.C.) wide receiver Glen Coates. Nazareth Academy (Ill.) offensive lineman Michael Owens and Woodward Academy (Ga.) CB Marcus Hyatt to its recruiting class earlier this week.

UPDATE: Army picked up a verbal commitment from Meadowbrook (Va.) quarterback-safety D’Angelo Amos Friday. Darlington School (Ga.) linebacker-fullback Robert Muschamp tweeted he will continue his football career at Auburn. Will Muschamp, his uncle, is the new defensive coordinator for the Tigers.

Recruiting weekend No. 2: Tank commits

Highland Springs (Va.) cornerback Tank Scott is the latest member of Army’s 2015 recruiting class.

Scott, who is 6-foot and 185 pounds, verbally committed to Army while wrapping up his official visit this weekend.

The nickname “Tank” apparently stuck when Scott was running over defenses in youth football.

At Highland Springs, Scott ran plays out of a wildcat offense.

Army also received commitments from Peachtree Ridge (Ga.) running back Tyler Campbell and De La Salle (Ill.) wide receiver Bryce Sutherland this weekend.

Campbell (6-1, 175) was in attendance for the Army-Navy game last month.

From what I’m told Sutherland (6-1, 186) is a good route runner. He works out with Morgan Park (Ill.) quarterback William James, who committed to Army last weekend.

UPDATE: San Angelo Central (Texas) safety Luke West tweeted Sunday night that he has verbally committed to Army football. West took his official visit to West Point this week. Lakeside (Ga.) running back Kellyen Walker called the Army coaching staff to give them his verbal commitment. Walker, out of Atlanta, visited West Point last week. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds.

Cibolo (Texas) wide receiver Jaylen Harris, Nazareth Academy (Ill.) offensive lineman Michael Owens, Hammonton (N.J.) lineman Nick Carnesale, East Central (Okla.) quarterback Tre’von Cherry and Meadowbrook (Va.) quarterback-safety D’Angelo Amos were among other recruits visiting this weekend.

CBS Sports Network Army football home next 5 years

Army football home games will remain in the CBS Sports Network for the next five years after the academy released a statement Thursday that it had come to an agreement with the television station.

Army’s original 5-year contract ran out at the end of the 2014 season.

The new contract gives CBS Sports Network the rights to all Army home games and select neutral-site games, which Army is the home team (Yankee Stadium, etc.)

The Army press release states the majority of home games will kick off at noon at Michie Stadium and a live web stream will be free for all military personnel around the world.

Some fans might not like the noon kickoff for most home games because it means leaving their house early in the morning to catch the traditions of an Army game day and tailgating. But, having games air on CBS Sports Network is more fan friendly than a contract with the ESPN network, where some game times are decided 12 days before the date.

In speaking with Army athletic director Boo Corrigan on the matter in November,  he was hoping to have an announcement on Army’s future television status before the Army-Navy game.

The CBS Sports Network makes sense for Army. CBS has the television rights to the Army-Navy game through 2018.

CBS and CBS Sports Network also have the rights to Navy’s home games through 2017.

Recruiting: Six more commits

William James needed to call his parents in Chicago.

James’ official visit to Army was going better than he expected. The Morgan Park (Ill.) quarterback had just met with coach Jeff Monken Saturday night. Monken was checking to see if James was ready to commit to the Black Knights.

“I told him, ‘No,’ initially because I needed to talk to my family and make sure that’s what I wanted to do because I didn’t want to be in a position where I wasn’t 100 percent sure and then decommit,” James said. “My parents said they supported my decision and it was my decision to make.”

Westfield (Va.) safety James Gibson, one of Army’s first commit who was also making his official, were trying to get James and others at West Point this weekend to join the class of 2015.

Both of the talks worked.

James was the first recruit of the weekend to commit to Monken Sunday morning.

Noblesville (Ind.) linebacker Donavan Lynch, Clovis North (Calif.) linebacker Hayden Haupt, Colerain (Ohio) running back Jordan Asberry and Central Gwinnett (Ga.) wide receiver Chris Shelling followed in a huge recruiting weekend for Army.

The verbal commitments continued Monday afternoon when Calvary Day (Ga.) cornerback A.J. Keene tweeted he will play for Army. Keene will visit West Point on Jan. 30.

Monken has a reputation as a tireless recruiter with an experienced, energetic staff. He is living up to that reputation in his first full cycle of recruiting.

How many times has a recruit switched his choice from Air Force to Army in recent memory?

Lynch had committed to Air Force on Dec. 2.

“I had the mindset to go in and weigh out the pros and the cons because I was already committed to Air Force,” Lynch said. “But at West Point, there were no cons.”

Army added some much needed speed this weekend. James said he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds. Shelling’s 40-yard dash time is listed at 4.49 seconds on his Hudl account.

Stay tuned. I’m told there are more commits with more speed to come from Army’s first recruiting weekend.

Recruiting: California LB commits

Jacquese Steen was forced to grow up fast.

Steen lost his father, older brother, grandmother and cousin before he turned 15.

His brother was shot to death.

Steen overcame the adversity to become one of the best linebacker in the Oakland (Calif.) area. He was good enough for Army to offer him a chance to play Division I football. West Point offered Steen a chance at a bright future. It was an opportunity that Steen couldn’t pass up. On Wednesday afternoon, Steen became the 26th commit of Army’s 2015 recruiting class.

“I have a commitment for Army, which is a commitment to myself to make the decision for me to make grow and be the best person I can be,” said Steen, who averaged 15.3 tackles per game in 2014 and was named to the San Francisco Chroncile’s all-Metro, second-team defense. “If there was a school that could do that better than Army, then I would be all for it. But right now, Army is the school that puts me in that position to do what it is I need to do as a person.”

Steen, a 6-foot, 225-pound, three-year starter at inside linebacker for Skyline, was recruited by Army safeties coach John Loose. Army offered Steen in October.

“I’ve been doing a lot of talking with people, who give me advice,” Steen said. “I was thinking about it for a few weeks. They’ve been wanting to commit for a while. After a while, I couldn’t find any reason not to solidify that offer that was on the table so I went ahead and made the commitment.”

A chance to attend the academy and play Division I football attracted Steen to West Point. Not so much the military side.

“The military part doesn’t intrigue me at all,” Steen said. “I’m not really all that happy about that part. The part that got me was the academics, athletics and the overall building of character. It was the best decision to help me grow.”

Steen said he will likely attend Army Prep in the fall.

UPDATE: Army picked up its 27th member of  the 2015 class Thursday (Jan. 8) when Dudley (N.C.) defensive end Nizaire Cromartie committed.

Army offered Paramus Catholic (N.J.) linebacker Denis Mucha and Thomas Dale (Va.) linebacker-tight end Marco Carrabotta Thursday.

Earlier this week, Army offered Elk Grove (Calif.) RB-S Spencer Sheff.

Army offered Newburgh Free Academy RB Aaron Forbes on Monday. But, Forbes, who played his high school football 15 miles from West Point, verbally committed to FCS Villanova Wednesday.

This is a big weekend for Army coach Jeff Monken and his staff. Official visits begin Friday.

Army commits James Gibson, a Westfield (Va.) safety, and Rod Stoddard, a defensive lineman from Hillcrest (S.C.), Noblesville (Ind.) linebacker Donavan Lynch, an Air Force commit, are visiting this weekend along with recruits Clovis North (Calif.) linebacker Hayden Haupt, Morgan Park (Ill.) quarterback William James and Emmaus (Pa.) running back Andrew Davidson.
