Football – Cougars ink 22 recruits

The Cougars will have 22 new faces in the locker room next season after finishing National Signing Day with commitments from 16 high school players and six junior college transfers.
The Cougars’ haul included three players ranked within the top 100 at their positions by Quarterback– Bram Kohlhausen (30), Athlete – Daniel Spencer (64) and linebacker Derrick Mathews (74).
The signing class features 12 defensive players, eight offensive players and two athletes.
Only two signees, Zachary Johnson of Norman, Okla., and Lloyd Allen of Baton Rouge, La., are from out of state.
Eight of the recruits are from Houston. Sixteen of the prospects are three-star recruits.
“I am very excited about this class,” head coach Kevin Sumlin said in a release. “We really feel like we met the needs of our football team, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
“There are many players that we feel can have a big impact on our program both in the short term and in building a foundation for the future. The best thing about this group of young men is that they are all passionate about being Cougars.”
