A Special South Jersey Sports Report Has You Covered on National Signing Day
It was all smiles in studio for three South Jersey area football standouts on National Signing Day.
St. Augustine Prep RB Calvin Cass, Mainland kicker Jim Cooper and Egg Harbor Township's Eric Wiafe all signed their National Letter of Intent at their respective high schools today in front of family, friends and school administrators.
Wiafe will be staying in NJ and will play at Rutgers next season, joining fellow EHT alum Teejay Johnson.
Cooper will remain in the area attending Temple, a school where his father, Jim Cooper Sr, starred as a kicker in the 80's.
Cass will be headed to the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.
Wildwood standout Wes Hills who was unable to come in studio due to his basketball duties called in to talk about him signing his letter with University of Delaware. The Blue Hens will be with a new head coach and that certainly played into Hills' decision to sign there. Coming from Wildwood a successful football season is hard to come by, but Hills was a big reason why the Warriors had the success that they did this season.
Recruiting analyst Sam Hellman called in to talk about the day that was in South Jersey for National Signing Day. On Wiafe, Hellman says that RU is getting a pure defensive end with great size at just 18 years old. Hellman also talks about Damon Mitchell who signed with Arkansas today. It was a long process for the Cedar Creek QB who had a lot of D-1 schools after him. Follow Hellman on Twitter.
A cool story here as Vineland WR Toure Douglas has signed with Ivy-League Columbia University in New York City. Yale, Lehigh, and Bryant were the other colleges after Douglas to suit up for them next fall.
Other notable signings: Rashad Kinlaw/Notre Dame, Damon Mitchell/Arkansas, Brandon Bell/Penn State
