June update: Direct or Army Prep

With R-Day right around the corner on July 3, here’s an updated list of 2017 Army commits who will be attending West Point or Army Prep.

Some names are missing off the list including Sharpstown (Texas) cornerback Dallas Blacklock. Blacklock is headed to Texas Southern, where his father, Dallas, is a wide receivers coach. The younger Blacklock was a member of the 2016 United States Under-18 national team.

Dacula (Ga.) linebacker Ty Harris, a former 2017 Army commit, will play for Western Carolina in the fall.

Franklin Regional (Pa.) tight end-linebacker Simon Behr cited “unforeseen obstacles” as the reason for him attending and playing football at Bucknell over Army.

Evangel Christian Academy (La.) lineman Ethan Harvey has enrolled at Central Arkansas.
