Wednesday is signing day around college football and while Air Force doesn’t celebrate it in a traditional way because of the Academy’s appointment process (names of the football recruits aren’t released until they arrive on campus in summer), the Falcons have unofficially welcomed many commitments, including two from quarterbacks who recently said they wanted to come to Air Force.
The Sacramento Bee reported that Dano Graves of Folsom (Calif.) High School, the MaxPreps.com national player of the year, has committed to Air Force. The undersized Graves had also been considering Sacramento State.
Also, Jaleel Awini, the Gatorade player of the year in Colorado this past season from Rangeview High School in Aurora, has also committed to Air Force, he told me via a Facebook message last night.
The Falcons, as usual, are bringing in a deep group of quarterbacks. Kent Rollins of South Gwinnett High School in Snellville, Ga. and Kale Pearson of Union High School in Tulsa, Okla. are also among Air Force’s class of high school recruits.
We’ll have a comprehensive rundown of the Air Force recruiting class through the day tomorrow, here on the blog and at Gazette.com. There will be multiple postings throughout the day, including highlight videos on most of the new class of Falcons.
