Army Signing Day Recap: DEFENSIVE LINE
After the defensive line struggles of the past few years, the staff has done a good job adding more size and athleticism to the front line. Army did miss out on a few of their top recruits but one of the Black Knights earliest recruits was Andrew McLean. He was a three-year starter from Broomfield high school in Colorado. McLean (6-3, 230 lbs.) is a First team All-State performer who chose Army over offers from Air Force, Wyoming, Yale, and Wofford last summer.
Caleb Newman is another All-State defensive end from Washington State who is expected to be a direct admit. Newman (6-3, 225) runs very well and was very quick off the edge in high school. He chose the Black Knights over Air Force, Washington State and Eastern Washington.
Noah Allen (6-1, 250) is a defensive end from Georgia who projects inside to defensive tackle in the Black Knights double eagle flex scheme. Noah had offers from FCS schools like Delaware, Furman and Tennessee State.
Tiano Pupungatoa is a defensive tackle commit from River Falls high school in Wisconsin. Tiano is 6-5, 255 pounds and has surprising speed. He had offers from Central Michigan and South Dakota State.
Luke Felta (6-1, 230) is a potential defensive end or three-technique defensive tackle from North Carolina. Felta was a four year starter and earned All-Conference honors.
Jason Nix is a 6-3, 220 pound defensive end from Missouri who looks like the ideal quick end in the double eagle flex defense. Nix injured his hamstring his junior season causing him to miss most of the season and the junior summer camps. As a result he was an under-the-radar recruit despite his Division I ability and speed. Nix will start his career at the United States Military Academy Prep School.
Another promising Missouri recruit is John Voit. Voit made 108 tackles, 27 tackles for loss, posted eight sacks and had an interception return for a touchdown his senior season. Voit earned First team All-State honors for his efforts and chose Army over offers from Southeast Missouri State, Tennessee-Martin, and Missouri State. John expects to start his career at USMAPS.
