Utah State coach Gary Andersen is playing host to 12 recruits this weekend, a source close to the Aggie program said, and all 12 of them have made and reaffirmed verbal commitments to play for the Aggies.
The latest two commitments are Joseph Hill — a 5-11, 185-pound running back out of Fullerton High in California — and Rashad Stewart — a 5-10, 180-pound safety out of Miami’s Jackson High.
One big commit reaffirming his decision to join the Aggies was Nevin Lawson, another cornerback from Florida. This weekend was Lawson’s first trip to Cache Valley and the source said the speedy athlete from Piper High in Sunrise, Florida came away impressed with what he saw in Logan and solidified his commitment.
The source said the weekend has been a big one for USU because the school confirmed the past verbal commitments of 10 other players and nearly wraps up the work that needs to be done before Wednesday’s signing day.
