17 Army All-Americans announce their college commitments on National Signing Day
100 Army All-Americans sign Letters of Intent 

The start of the 2016 college football season may be six months away, but coaches and fans everywhere waited patiently with the hopes that promising recruits from across the country chose their school yesterday during National Signing Day. Just one month ago, the nation’s top 100 football players took the field at the Alamodome in San Antonio, proving why they deserved to be there. Among those athletes were Shea Patterson (Ole Miss early enrollee), Jacob Eason (University of Georgia early enrollee), Janarius Robinson (Florida State early enrollee) and Austin Mack (Ohio State early enrollee). While some made their decision long before (or at) the Army Bowl, others waited patiently for February 3rd to roll around.

The following declared their college commitments yesterday during National Signing Day:

Devin Asiasi— University of Michigan

Derrick Brown—Auburn University

Brian Burns—Florida State University

Tyler Byrd— University of Tennessee

Jamel Cook—University of Southern California

Brendan Ferns—West Virginia University

Mecole Hardman Jr.—University of Georgia

During this year’s Army Bowl, five Army All-Americans announced their college commitments live on NBC during the national broadcast.

All but one Army All-American signed their Letter of Intent for their respective universities. The missing piece to the puzzle? Demetris Robertson. The #1 wide receiver has taken official visits to Notre Dame, Georgia Tech and California, according to Sports Illustrated, but said he wants more time “before sitting down and making an informed decision.”
