19 new student athletes were brought into the Lion family today, and while the numbers may not seem as many as in years past, the quality of the signees seem to be very, very, good. We’ll have a full analysis this weekend of every player, but two that stand out in the early peek are two transfers that, with the move to Division 1 may not have been available to the Lions before.
First is graduate transfer quarterback Jagger Laroe (6’5″ 230 lbs.), a big, tall quarterback in the mold of a Wade Wilson or Kyle Mackey, He started his high school career at Bishop Lynch before finishing his senior year at Colleyville High. He then redshirted at Texas A&M-College Station before transferring to Ohio State. With eligibility left, Laroe chose to come back home to Texas, and to Commerce.
Second is wide receiver Keith Miller (6’4″ 200 lbs.), a very fast receiver with soft hands who spent his high school career at The Colony, then spent two years at the University of Colorado before also making the decision to return home to Texas, and become a part of the Lions.
Again, we’ll have in depth analysis of every player, but the early returns are proving to be very, very bright indeed.
