Saturday was a big day on the scoreboard for Army football.
It was also an important recruiting day. Army hosted close to 20 recruits at Lincoln Financial Field.
Fowler (Calif.) lineman Kevin Sundberg, St. Augustine Prep record-setting back Calvin Cass, Jr., Milton (Ga.) DE Noah Allen, St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) lineman Joe Tustin and Monroe-Woodbury WR Justin Kaffenberger were among the recruits on the sidelines during pregame and in the first few rows on Army’s side during the game.
Will a 11th straight loss to Navy make recruits shy away from Army?
Rivals.com reports Air Force and New Mexico have offered Lundberg scholarships. Cass rushed for 1,941 yards and 36 touchdowns. Tustin is listed at 6-foot-2 and 295 pounds. Kaffenberger told me he is also considering Marist and Wagner.
Our Lady of Lourdes (N.Y.) lineman Devlin Brennan is off Army’s radar after committing to Bucknell Tuesday.
A disappointing season hasn’t completely hurt Army’s recruiting. Pinecrest (N.C.) defensive end Luke Fetla committed to Army two weeks ago, according to goblackknights.com. Fetla visited West Point during Air Force weekend in November. Valhalla (Calif.) cornerback Nehemiah Brown committed last week, goblackknights.com reported.
Fetla, Brown and Colorado defensive end Andrew McLean, another Army commit, were present in Philadelphia.
