WR Martize Barr Ht. 6.0 Wt 185 Coolidge HS
Many reports Martize has UNM listed as his top choice.
Barr. A very unique kid he has played varsity for
He started at the X receiver at the age of 13 when most kids should be
playing Pop Warner. He is light years ahead of where he should be.
Great student and extra work ethic. --Coach Jason Lane
Joshua Ford WR 6-2 Wt. 187
Joshua Ford is the most unique type of player. He is very quiet off
the field but once he steps onto the football field he becomes a
special athlete. He is a freak of nature as far as an athlete. – Jason Lane
RB/WR Avery Williams Ht. 5-11 Wt. 168
Avery Williams is a very fast and versatile athlete
multiple positions he is a very outgoing and hard working kid with a
great work ethic. He will push himself both on and off the field. --Jason Lane
OT Arie Kouandjio Ht 6-6 Wt. 320
DeMatha (Washington DC)
One of if not the top offensive lineman coming out of the DC area. New Mexico, Alabama, California, Maryland, Miami, Tennessee, and Notre Dame have all offered.
DE Josh Alexander 6-3 210 Westlake HS
What we have heard of Joshua Alexander is that he plays DE bigger than he really is, but in college needs to add some weight to his frame to play a solid DE.
CB/WR Julian Blair
5-10 160 Westlake HS
Blair visited New Mexico this summer and earned a scholarship offer from New Mexico. Blair is a talented athlete that plays on both sides of the ball, and also a solid kick returner.
OG Lamar Bratton 6-1 268lbs North HS
Bratton visits with a reputation as a fiery competitor that is also known for his aggressive physical play.
DE Vincent Johnson 6-3 240 North Crowley HS (Ft. Worth TX)
Vincent Johnson was named first team All-District 3-5A Team defense as a junior. The Panthers have gotten off to a 1-5 start as Johnson missed the first four games of the season with a knee injury. North
LB Zach Daugherty (Committed to New
Mexico) 5-11 195 Onate HS
"I think I bring a hard working attitude and a desire to win at all costs, which will probably fit right in with the rest of the players there." –Zach Daugherty
All young me were able to tour the campus, stadium (The Den), as well as attend UNM's basketball victory game over New Mexico State.
