    Army's roster is actually not in shambles as coach Hammons expected. The Glaring needs are to build depth at QB, MLB, DE, and CB after startes leave. DE is the weakest position out of all the needs.

    2015 Army Recruiting Class

    :3stars: QB Derrick Gates Juco(Jr) 6'2" 209 Sarasota Sprints, FL
    C SPD/AWR C+ THP B THA
    Will bring him in and most likely redshirt him to take the reigns next year after Banks leaves unless he has a stellar fall camp. Offer from Alabama.

    :3stars: HB Avery Rodgers 6'0" 194 Warwick, RI
    B+ Spin B SPD/Stiff B- Juke D Carrying
    Early insta commit. I was looking to take 1 RB in this class and this looks like it is my guy. This saves me from having to pour the time into some other guys but hes not the speedster I was looking for with some of my other targers.

    :3stars: HB Jasper Adams 6'0" 206 Dormont, PA
    B+ SPD C+ ACC/Stiff Arm C Spin/Juke/Carry
    This kid was actually my top target for HB early in the season but I offered him and another kid and the other kid insta-committed. Kept him on the board and his interest kept growing without me having to spend time on it so I took him in the offseason. Promising prospect.

    :3stars: TE Jesse Lewis 6'7" 223 Newburgh, NY
    B+ Break Tkl B- RBK C Catch/PBK/SPD
    After realizing the Juco 1* TE's I signed last year are horrible this guy was a big get. Also rebuilding that pipeline into NY. Would like to redshirt him but he will honestly probably start due to terrible TE depth. Had an offer from Buffalo.


    :3stars: T Marcus Koch 6'3' 307 Edison, NJ
    B- Run Blk Str C+ RBK FootWork C RBK C- PBK STR/FTW
    Needed to start building the o-line back as it looked like I may have neglected that aspect last year. Solid prospect, except his D strength. Will see a Redshirt and hopefully the big fella can blossom as a Jr/Sr.

    :3stars: TE Sean Williamson 6'2" 255 Jamestown, NY
    B- RBK C+ SPD/Release C CTH/PBK/RBK STR
    Another solid TE I figured I would take two while the interest was high. Offer from Syracus.

    :3stars: FS Courtney Turner 6'0" 192 Deer Park, NY
    C SPD/PRS B- ACC B MCV C+ AWR/HPW/PUR C- CTH/BLShed
    FS was a big need in this class and I didn't have any burnerns interested so I had to take this guy. Looks like he can lay some lumber despite his small frame. No other offers.

    :3stars: ATH Kalvin Hardin 6'1" 177 Stephenville, TX
    B+ SPD C HPW C- MCV/ZCV
    Speedy defensive player, will see either CB or S I'm guessing once he arrives on campus.


    :3stars: CB Antwaun Nixon 6'3" 180 Warwick, RI
    B+ SPD/ACC B JMP C HPW/MCV/PRESS
    With a handful of interested CB's I went with the taller and speedy Nixon to matchup with some of H4Y's elite WR's down the road. Nixon's height and jumping ability make him an interesting prospect. Offer from Syracuse.

    :2stars: FS Joel Collins Juco(So) 5'11" 169 Fullerton, CA
    B SPD/MCV/PUR C+ AGI/ACC/HPW/Press C JMP/SHED/CTH/PLAY REC C- STR
    Not too shabby of a FS prospect albeit a little undersized. We expect some good things from him in the future, especially after loosing FS Brad Skinner. Offers from Cal and Washington.

    :2stars: K Ryan Hudson Paterson, NJ
    C- KPW
    Nuff said.

    :1stars: G Jermaine Jackson Juco(So) 6'3" 308 Punta Gorda, FL
    C STR/PBK/RBK/RBKFW/RBKSTR
    Was trying to build somewhat of a pipeline back into Florida and saw this kid and needed O-linemen. His skill set leans more towards running the ball which is what we like to do here at Army so hopefully he will be a good fit.

    :1stars: FB Andrew Berry 5'10' 214 Syosset, NY
    B- SPD/Break Tackle C- Passblock
    I need to reestablish NY as they are not a pipeline state, and this guy had me on top of his list. I didn't need a FB really but I can redshirt this guy and look to use him in a few years after my others move on. B- speed for a FB will be nice if he develops.

    :1stars: P Kevin Thomans Juco (So) East Patchogue, NY
    C Kick Power
    Didn't take a walk-on, nuff said.

    2016 Army Recruiting Class

    :4stars: ATH Teddy Wilkerson 6'2' 191 Dunmore, PA
    B SPD C+ AGL/BRTKL/BCV/THP/STA
    Army's first 4* and he looks to be a QB which will be good with Derrick Gates being a SR next year hopefully we can see this kid RS along with the other QB recruit and battle it out come 2 years. Offer from Pitt.

    :3stars: WR Matt Fontaine 6'1" 161 Copiague, NY
    A SPD B+ JMP C AGL D CTH
    Another speedy WR who should see a redshirt. No other offers.

    :3stars: DE Stephen Campbell 6'3" 232 Laconia, NH
    B- Block Shed C+ HPW/PUR C- PWRMV
    This guy will be a project with his D+ STR and TKL, but with 4 out of 5 DE's being upperclassmen I had to nab a DE to shirt this year or else. No other offers.

    :3stars: HB Victor Harrison Juco (JR) 5'9" 202 Greenville, TX
    B+ SPD B ACC B- AGL/SPIN/JUKE C+ STR/VIS C BRKTKL/TRUCK/ELU/STIFFY
    I don't feel too confident about my HB's coming back next year and with my workhorse Larry Clark graduating I felt I needed to look at a Juco. This guy looks to be a step above Clark when he came in as a Juco and Clark had a good stay here at Army so it will be intersting to see how Harrison can fare. No other offers.

    :3stars: T Antonio Williams 6'5" 276 Newark, DE
    C STR/PBK/PBKSTR C- RBK/PBKFW/RBKFW/RBKSTR
    Needed 2 Tackles, took 3 in this class. 1 will most likely have to start the others will probably shirt. Offer from Purdue.

    :3stars: C Josh Hearn 6'2" 289 Hackensack, NJ
    C+ STR C PBK/RBK
    A center with room to grow who will have a chance to develop as the starting C will be a Jr next year. Offer from Virginia.

    :3stars: T Will Randall 6'7" 292 Dover Base Hsg, DE
    C- STR/PBK/RBK/ C PBKSTR/PBKFW
    Musical tackles, probably worse than Antonio williams overall but a better passblocker. No other offers.

    :3stars: DT Stephen Wright 6'2" 271 Swanton, VT
    B STR C+ PWR MV C- TKL/PUR
    DT who may be able to be the center guy in a 3-4 scheme in a year or two. No other offers.

    :3stars: T Nathan James 6'5" 316 Massapequa Park, NY
    B STR C+ Run Bk Str C Run Bk FootWork C- PassBK Footwork
    Tackle was a dire need this class and Nathan was our primary target of the guys who showed us interest in this group. Big frame we hope to utilize may have to start next year. Only drawbacks are his D ratings in RBK/PBK. No other offers.

    :3stars: WR Bobby Bostic 6'6" 214 Washington, DC
    B+ SPD C+ Jump/BreakTackle C AGL C- CatchNTraffic D Catch
    Bobby is a big target with speed that Army had their eye on from the get go. His heigh, speed, and ability to go up and get the ball will make him valuable and we fully expect him to be capable of putting up Jason Merritt type number by his Junior year hopefully if his hands progress accordingly. No other offers.

    :3stars: SS Jamal Meyers 6'3" 200 Monroeville, PA
    C SPD/AGL/Catch/TKL/PURSUIT B ACC B- JMP C+ PRESS/Play Rec C- STR/ZCV
    SS was another dire need, and while not possessing elite speed we feel Meyers is fully capable into developing into a solid C-USA SS. Offer from Temple.

    :3stars: CB Kevin Hill 6'4" 171 New Kinsington, PA
    B+ SPD B AGL C+ ACC/JMP/MCV/PRS/PUR C HPW
    Another potential 3 star diamond in the rough. VERY excited about this kid. 6'4 with good speed and better than average jump could make this kid a serious DB in this pass heavy league. Looking forward to getting this kid on campus and seeing what he can do. Offer from Marshall.

    :3stars: G Kyle Hancock 6'1 310 Monroe, MI
    C+ STR/RBK/PBK/PBKFW/IMPBK
    Another beefcake to plug into the line next year that has a lot of members graduating. I hate to put myself into this spot having to potentially starting Freshmen on the OL but this kid has the tools to help if needed right away and hopefully be a promising guard a few years down the road. Offer from Central Michigan

    :3stars: SS Kurt Parrish 6'3" 196 Jeannette, PA
    C SPD/STR/PRS B- JMP C+ ACC/TKL/PUR C- AGL/CTH/ZCV
    His speed may make him more suited for a LB position but this kid was a must grab needing to SS to avoid taking a walk-on this year. Offer from Marshall.

    :3stars: MLB Andy Williams 5'11" 240 Homestead, FL
    B- SPD C+ STR/JMP/PUR C- PWMV/BLKSH/TKL
    Our starting MLB is a Junior and we hope Andy May push some of the other guys along or develop into a starting role himself here in a few years. Good speed for a MLB. Offer from Iowa State.

    :3stars: QB Lester Lee 6'5" 213 Livingston, NJ
    C SPD/STA/THA C+ THP
    Lester will take a shirt and possibly be handed the reigns after next season when starting QB Derrick Gates graduates. Offers from Marshall & Penn State.

    What a difference Army fans have noticed in this season's recruiting class compared to last years. They finally bring in a :4stars: recruit and the staff feels like they may have found some diamond in the rough players at others. Only brought in 1 juco guy this year so these young guys should have a very high ceiling hopefully.

    2017 Army Black Knights Recruiting Class
    :4stars: 3​
    :3stars: 10​
    :2stars: 2​
    :4stars: ATH Marcus Clarke 6'0" 258 Villa Park, IL
    B HPW C+ SPD C STR/Blk Shd/Play recognition C- TKL/PUR
    Dynasty wire lists this kid as a RE which is where I see him playing. My two top guys are graduating and this fella has the tools to possibly step in right away. Hopefully Army can have somewhat of a pash rush with Clarke coming off the edge in the next few years. No other offers.

    :3stars: CB Ryan Alston 6'2" 193 West Rutland, VT
    B SPD/MCV/ZCV B- ACC/JMP/PRESS C+ AGL C PURSUIT/Play Rec
    Wk 1 insta commit but seems to be a good find with B MCV and ZCV. This guy should see some time fairly early as my CB's are getting totally beat up this year.

    :3stars: OLB Serge Harper 6'3" 204 Reading, PA
    B- STR C+ JMP C SPD/TKL C- BLKSHD/Play Rec
    Needing to take 3 LB's this year Serge "Sarge" Harper was one we hope can shirt and develop into a role down the road. At least he keeps us from taking a walkon if we can wrap up the other LB's we are going after.

    :4stars: WR Kyle Sands 6'4" 232 Menasha, WI
    B SPD/JMP B- Spectacular Catch C+ CIT/CARRY C ROUTERUN C- AGL/RLS
    Not a speedster but still a good get. BIG WR at 6'4" 232 lbs. His height, jumping ability, and spectacular catch can hopefully make up for his D hands. Offer from Navy.

    :3stars: SS Andy Johnson 6'1" 185 Commack, NY
    B+ ACC B JMP B- ZCV/PRESS C+ SPD/AGL/TKL/MCV C STR/CTCH/HPW/PUR
    Solid prospect who could help down the road. Very average in everything, excels at nothing really tho. Offer from Boston College.

    :3stars: DE Steven Dahl 6'2" 280 Kingston, NY
    B- STR C+ TKL/HPW C PUR/PWMV/BLKSH
    Needing to beef up the DL with 2 starting DE's leaving and only 2 DT's returning next year. Steven could possibly see a move to the interior with his size and strength, since I've struck out on several DT targets this season. Offer from Navy.

    :3stars: OLB Orlando McIntyre 6'6" 210 Rowlett, TX
    B HPW C+ SPD/STR C JMP/PWMV/BlkSh/ZCV/PUR C- AGL/FNMV/MCV/TKL
    Another solid all around defensive prospect. Early on I went after speed only in my LB's and that is really started to bite me showing this season. I'm happy to settle for C+ SPD now if their other intangibles are up to par. Needing to take 3 LB's this year Orlando has a good possibility of seeing some early time in a year or two with his intangibles. Offer from UL Lafayette.

    :3stars: OLB Andy Fogle 6'3" 211 Seaford, NY
    B- SPD/STR/BLKSH/ZCV/PUR C+ PWRMV/HPW C TKL/FNSMV/MCV C- AGL/JMP/PLYREC
    REALLY excited about this kid. Strong, fast, can hit, shed blockers, pursue, cover (man/zone), sure tackler. He was a steal I found in my backyard in NY and nobody was showing interest a few weeks in. He has attributes that you see some of the better Juco LB's come in with and he's only a freshmen. I have a feeling this guy will see the field day 1 (A+ early playing time) and I can't wait to get him on campus. Offers from Oklahoma, Alabama, and Miami.

    :4stars: HB Kareem Fenner 5'11" 215 Mineola, NY
    B SPD B- AGL/ACC/ELU C+ TRK/STIFF/SPIN/VISION C STR/BTK C- JUKE
    Another NY kid I found later in the year who wasn't getting any love from the other schools. Kareem while lacking elite speed has a very solid skill set, and will most likely redshirt next year to take over for Victor Harrison after his Senior year next year. Excited about this get. Offers from Pitt and Boston College.


    :3stars: G Eric Rivers 6'2" 301 Newton, MA
    B- PassBlkStr C+ STR/PBK/RBK/IMPACT BLK C PBKFW/RBKFW/RBKSTR
    After getting blindsided by my whole oline graduating next year I wanted to take at least one OL position a year. This kid is a solid get and may come in next year and beat some of the Freshmen starting this year out. Very well rounded OL prospect. Offers from ULL and Boston College.

    :2stars: DE Blake Thorne Juco(JR) 6'0" 250 Midland, MI
    B TKL C+ SHED C HPW/PUR/PWMV C- FINMV
    Only having 2 DT's on scholly next year I desperately need some depth on the interior. I also have LE's graduating with the next in line rated a 61 overall. Had to go the Juco route to shore up some of these holes, especially after striking out on DT prospects (2 have me -1 but soft committed to other schools without an offer since like week 7). Blake may make the move inside, or the other juco DE I'm going after may. Should be an interesting offseason w/ position changes.

    :3stars: FS Carlos Dougherty 6'0" 195 New Philadelphia, OH
    B- SPD/ACC/ZCV/HPW C+ TKL/PUR/PRESS/AGL C- JMP
    Decent looking FS who has the skills to develop into a 2 year starter hopefully. Offers from Michigan, Florida, Troy.

    :2stars: DE Sean Robbins Juco(Jr) 6'5" 252 Bangor, ME
    B SHED C+ STR/TKL/PWMV C- PUR/FNMV
    Since we can't seem to lure a DT recruit to West Point, there is a very good chance that Sean slides over to play DT for two years while we look for some more DT's next year. No other offers.

    :3stars: SS Kevin Fowler Juco(Jr) 5'10" 180 Arlington Height, IL
    B+ ACC B- SPD/JMP/MCV/ZCV/PRESS C+ SHED/CTH/TLK/HPW/PUR/RECOG
    Juco SS that we expect to come in pretty hyped and highly rated. We will only have him two years but feel he can make Army's secondary much stronger. Offer from Oklahoma.

    :3stars: G Charlie Willis Juco(Jr) 6'3" 262 Bartow, FL
    B RBKFW B- STR/RBK C PBK C+ PBKSTR/PBKFW/RBKSTR
    While lacking in overall size a solid guard with a more than adequate skill set. With 4 of Army's OL being freshmen this season, this Veteran can hopefully bring some stability and leadership to the young group and allow a guy or two to develop. Offer from UCF.
