Recruiting: Georgia LB Jomier Augustine, RB Jonathan Andrews join 2018 class

Jeff Monken has placed major emphasis on recruiting the state of Georgia since taking over Army coach in late 2013.

The efforts of Army’s staff was rewarded Monday when the Black Knights received not one but two commitments from the Peach State.

Collins Hill linebacker Jomier Augustine and Dutchtown running back Jonathan Andrews posted their intentions to attend and play football at West Point.

Augustine, who visited Army on the weekend of July 21-23, is being recruited to play middle linebacker. The 6-foot, 217-pound senior made 93 tackles his junior year. Among the schools offering Augustine, who hails from the same high school as Army senior safety Rhyan England, were The Citadel, Stetson and Howard.

Andrews, who had an offer from Navy, runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds, according to Recruit Georgia.

Augustine and Andrews are the third and fourth Georgia commits in Army’s 2018 class.

In other recruiting news: Springfield (Ohio) linebacker Cameron Hoelscher announced his commitment to Army Saturday. Hoelscher had offers from Air Force, Kentucky, Western Michigan, Bowling Green, Buffalo and Toledo.

High school seniors from 19 states have committed to Army. Here’s a breakdown: Texas (9); Georgia (4); Pennsylvania (4); Virginia (4); Florida (3); North Carolina (3); Ohio (3); Tennessee (3); Alabama (2); Louisiana (2); Maryland (2); Michigan (2); Missouri (2); California (1); Connecticut (1); Indiana (1); Maryland (2); Oklahoma (1); South Carolina (1); Wisconsin (1).
