Recruiting: Washington D.C. defensive end Rodney Faulk joins 2020 class

Gonzaga (Washington D.C.) defensive end Rodney Faulk’s first two FBS offers came from Army and Navy.

Following a West Point visit earlier this week, Faulk gave his verbal commitment to Army.

“I liked the coaches and I felt at home,” said Faulk, who is 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds. “Overall, the men at Army are guys I would want to be around.”

When asked about the differences between Army and Navy and what might had led to his decision, Faulk said, “Just the overall feel, it felt like it was the right place for me.”

Central Michigan also offered Faulk.

Ponte Vedra (Fla.) safety Tommy Zitiello committed to Army on the spot after received an offer from assistant coach Daryl Dixon last week.

“I’ve been wanting to go (to West Point) since my freshman year,” Zitiello said.

When asked when interested him about West Point, Zitiello, who visited Army in January, said, “Just the whole military aspect and the engineering program.”

Zitiello was first offered by Navy. He said he wasn’t considering Navy before Army offered.

It’s a big recruiting weekend for the Black Knights with plenty of prospects on campus for official visits. Wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more commitments in the immediate future.
