Recruiting: Louisiana QB Collin Guggenheim joins 2020 class

Class of 2020 quarterback commits keep rolling in for Army as Collin Guggenheim of John Curtis Christian (La.) posted a video Monday stating his intentions to join the Black Knights.

During his commitment video, Guggenheim said that he was told he wasn’t fast enough, too short and his arm wasn’t strong enough to play Division I-A football.

Army was the only FBS school to offer Guggenheim, who rushed for 1,000 yards and passed for 1,000 yards in his junior season. Guggenheim visited Army in late May.

“Everyone there wants you to succeed in life,” said Guggenheim, who is 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds. “It’s just the family atmosphere.

“(The recent success) puts Army on the map nationally and it will only go up from here because of the groups of guys that will be continually coming in.”

Navy showed interest in Guggenheim, who made a trip to Annapolis in April.

“They told me I just wanted their guy,” Guggenheim said.

Guggenheim runs a veer offense, similar to Army’s scheme, at John Curtis.

“I can come in and compete right away,” Guggenheim said. “I do not have to spend a year or two trying to learn and understand the veer. I’m excited I get to continue to run the veer at the next level.”

Meadowcreek (Ga.) quarterback Quincy Bonner committed to Army Sunday following an unofficial visit Saturday.

“I wouldn’t want to be a part of any other brotherhood,” Bonner said. “It was a great campus and just the history alone was mind-blowing not knowing people like George Washington helped with the start of (West Point). The facilities are unbelievable and the coaches were great. It felt like a family when I was around them.”

Bonner believes that Army’s offense fits his skill set. He said Meadowcreek runs a lot single-back option and double-back reads.

“I watched the Army and Navy game and I like the offense more after I got to watch some film on it,” Bonner said. “I can run very well. My 40 (yard dash time) is 4.5 (seconds). I can also run a quick-style offense and I’m a tough runner. I know how to run behind my pads. I can also throw and I am also a great leader.”

Four quarterback prospects have committed to Army from June 17-24 as Donovan Anthony of Washington Wilkes (Ga.) and Delshawn Traylor of Helix, Calif.

Traylor was recruited as a safety by Air Force and didn’t receive much attention from Navy. Traylor’s father has actively served in the Navy for 21 years.

“The military has always intrigued me but when Army reached out, I knew it was the best choice for me,” Traylor said.

Recruiting: Official visit weekend nets three Georgia commits

Georgia continues to be one of Army’s top recruiting hotbeds under offensive coordinator Brent Davis as the Black Knights received three 2020 commitments from the Peach State over the weekend.

Aquinas (Ga.) fullback A.J. Williams, who gave his verbal commitment to coach Jeff Monken during his official visit Sunday morning, said the Georgia background of Army’s coaching staff helps build a strong relationship with recruits. Davis worked under Monken at Georgia Southern before West Point.

“They believe in the type of ball played down here,” Williams said.

Navy and Air Force offered Williams. But Army, which has won the Commander in Chief’s trophy, the round-robin competition between the Division I service academies, the last two seasons, made Williams, “feel like a top priority.”

“I am beyond proud to be able to commit to West Point,” said Williams, who rushed for 754 yards and seven touchdowns and made 90 tackles and nine tackles for a loss as a linebacker his junior season. “I feel like I can be a part of something truly amazing.”

Rome (Ga.) center Aidan Gaines said Davis was “outstanding” as a recruiter,”unlike most he doesn’t push you to make a decision. He just lets the facts speak for themselves.”

Gaines knew Army was the right fit for him, “When I looked out at the Hudson (River) past Thayer Hall (during his official visit over the weekend). That was the moment.” The two-year starter also received offers from Navy and Air Force. Gaines committed to Monken in his office Sunday during his official visit.

“The largest factor in my decision was the amount of opportunity the school had to offer,” said Gaines, who would like to major engineering or law. “The fact that all majors were available to all athletes is completely unheard of at any other school. That paired with what the program has become with the coaching staff made West Point the best choice or me out of any college in the country.”

Gaines said Army’s “heavy emphasis on brotherhood,” stood out among the other academies.

“The word ‘brotherhood,’ is loosely tossed around at other schools but only at West Point is it 100 percent lived by,” Gaines said. “Everyone at West Point feels like my football family back home, almost frighteningly so.”

Savannah Country Day (Ga.) defensive end Andre Miller announced his commitment to Army Sunday afternoon following an official visit. Miller and A.J. Williams were teammates in the Georgia Elite Classic All-Star game. He had more than 10 FBS offers including Navy, Colorado and Florida Atlantic.

Commitments from the recruiting weekend kept rolling in Monday as Westinghouse (Chicago, Ill.) linebacker De’Andre Wilborn and Peabody (Tenn.) running back Jarel Dickson announced their pledges.

Wilborn, who was recruited by multiple Ivy League schools, said West Point’s academics played an important role in his commitment.

“I am a student-athlete and I believe that with everything in me,” Wilborn said. “Being a student comes first. I am the first in my family to have my education paid for in full and to play college football at the highest level with a top 25 team.

“This is an amazing opportunity and I’m ready for the journey.”

Dickson’s FBS offers included Navy, Miami (Ohio) and Western Kentucky. He rushed for 1,260 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior.

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.

Recruiting: Hawaii safety Kaiser Cambra-Cho joins 2020 class

St. Louis (Hawaii) safety Kaiser Cambra-Cho committed to Army during his second visit to West Point Saturday, choosing the Black Knights over Air Force.

Cambra-Cho grew up watching the Army-Navy game, cheering on Army. He didn’t seriously considering attending West Point until his sophomore year.

“It feels like a dream come true,” said Cambra-Cho, who is 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds. “I think that they have amazing coaches that know what they’re doing and they really made me feel at home. I also think the caliber of Army football just keeps going up.”

Cambra-Cho was attracted to West Point’s engineering program and the football team’s culture. He also visited West Point on Junior Day in January.

Recruiting: Louisiana RB Dillan Monette joins 2020 class

Acadiana (La.) running back Dillan Monette’s lifelong goal is to become an orthopedic surgeon.

The idea of becoming a future Army surgeon intrigued Monette when he received an offer from the Black Knights last month.

Monette didn’t wait long to make his college decision after the offer. He verbally committed Mike Viti on Thursday (May 2) when Army’s fullback coach Mike Viti visited Acadiana High School. Monette called Army coach Jeff Monken to confirm his commitment Friday (May 3).

“It’s a top football program,” Monette said. “It’s an honor to attend West Point. They would support me in medical school.”

Monette hopes to follow the path of senior linebacker Kenneth Brinson. Brinson has been named a Stanford University Knight-Hennessy Scholar and will an MD and PhD in engineering at Stanford.

Army is adding speed with Monette’s commitment. Monette said his best time in the 40-yard dash is 4.41 seconds. Army is recruiting the 5-foot-7, 170-pound Monette to play slotback.

2020 commits (3)

Other offers – Rutgers, Louisville, Illinois, Buffalo, Western Kentucky, Western Michigan, Tulane, Toledo, Ohio, Colorado State, Middle Tennessee State, Southern Mississippi, Liberty. (COMMITTED, March 30)
