Appalachian State Recruiting Class of 2015 - Building Depth

New, 1 comment

With 20 of 22 starters returning from 2014, App State's Class of 2015 is looking to shore up the depth chart with a concise 22-member class.

On the strength of a six-game win streak to close the season and a winning season in their first FBS season, App State signed 22 players, 4 of which already enrolled in January, to National Letters of Intent on Wednesday morning.

While App State lost out on Tarrick Thomas and Darnell Thompson, App gained late commits from Jake Easter and Bo Alexander to sure up spots.

The only surprise on the day was Gerald Morgan from Fitzgerald, Georgia, who after being undecided the entire time picked App over Georgia Southern and Troy.

There is one story to look out for. Khylil Miller of Lexington, NC did not sign today due to an "administrative error". It seems that this is not the fault of Miller, but does delay his signing.

After going for speed and skill players primarily over the last few years, App State went line-heavy with this class, gaining some size with many upper-classmen lineman either having graduated or about to graduate.

Zireycus Letman, Mondo Williams, Antonious Sims and Dezmin Reed will have two years of eligibility left as Junior College transfers. All other players will have their four full years.
