Two Junior College Wide Receivers and a High School Offensive Lineman join the 2018 NMSU Class.

Fresh off the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl win (man that is so wonderful to say), Head Man Doug Martin and company hosted recruits this weekend on official visits and came away with two JUCO signees and a high school commitment!

Of the 22 official visits they have had during recruiting season thus far, 14 have committed and 11 have signed with more to come (hopefully!).

The first new recruit is Shea Holebrook Jr., a wide receiver from Monroe College in New Rochelle, New York. Holebrook stands at 6’5” and 195 lbs.

He bears a striking resemblence to our very own 6’6”, 215 lbs Jaleel Scott, who has been tabbed as a major sleeper in the 2018 NFL draft by CBSSports.com. I have a feeling this staff will try to add some muscle to Shea’s physique and try to turn him into an all around threat. You can see his Hudl highlights here. Shea does not have a recuiting ranking on 247sports.

The second JUCO receiver to sign on with the Crimson is Andre Bodison, another big receiver at 6’4” and 200 pounds. Bodison hails from the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico, where Conner Cramer played before heading to Las Cruces.

He has a listed 40 yard dash time of 4.65 and seems to be a very physical receiver who isn’t afraid to go up and get the ball.

Bodison is originally from Palm Coast, Florida and has three remaining years to play two; meaning he can redshirt if need be. He has some interest from Troy and Eastern Kentucky but decided to join the Aggies. Andre does not have a recruiting ranking on 247sports.

Last but not least is Evan Tafoya-Vallo, an offensive lineman from Rio Rancho, New Mexico. He is listed at 6’3” and 280 pounds. Perhaps the best part of this commitment is that he de-committed from UTEP after the coaching change and decided to join the Aggies!

He had offers from UTEP, New Mexico and Air Force.

Tafoya-Vallo is a two star offensive lineman, according to 247sports and will greyshirt as a member of the 2018 class. You can check out his Hudl highlights here.
