Recruiting: California Committing

St. Louis (Hawaii) defensive lineman Isaiah Filisi announced his commitment to Army on the eve of early signing day.

Filisi recently received an offer from the Black Knights following an unofficial visit to West Point.

Army dipped into California for three of its latest commits following the Army-Navy game.

Offensive lineman David Hayward (Monte Vista), linebacker Brady Sheehan (Redlands East Valley) and safety Fabrice Voyne (Xavier Prep) joined Army’s 2019 recruiting class.

Sheehan visited West Point before attending the Army-Navy game.

“Army has shown me that they are recruiting me as more than a player, but as a person,” Sheehan said. “They want me there because they view me as the quality of character they would like to have around. And playing football for a much bigger purpose reminds me what I still play the sport for. There is no option better for me.”

Voyne said attending the Army-Navy game, “was a once-in-lifetime experience. So excited to play in that soon.”

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound safety, who had offers from BYU and Utah State, said the combination of academics, athletics and the prestige of West Point were the differences in his decision.

“I want to be a part of that tradition and no other school fits it better,” Voyne said.

Army received a commitment from Mount Carmel (Ill.) long snapper Patrick Szczesniak posted his commitment to Army Monday. Szczesniak, who had offered from Purdue and Iowa State, is ranked the 20th-best long snapper of the 2019 class by Rubio Long Snapping.

Belfry (Ky.) offensive lineman Dagen Rash decommitted from Army and committed to in-state Kentucky.

St. Thomas Aquinas wide receiver Matt Akuchie recently announced his decommitment from Army. Akuchie committed in September.

Here’s an updated commitment list heading in the first signing day on Wednesday (* – have posted online that they will sign their certificate of commitment Wednesday):
