South Alabama Football Weekend Roundup

December 17, 2012 · By · Filed Under Football 

Defensive coordinator Bill Clark working with Jake Johnson and the linebackers during individual drills on Saturday morning.

Over this past weekend the Jaguars hosted their final group of recruits before the JuCo mid-year signing period begins on Wednesday, December 19.

Steffon Fuller from East Central Community College, a 6’3″ 205-pound safety, Steven Fuller, Steffon’s twin brother who plays wide receiver, safety and cornerback at the same school. Montell Garner, a cornerback from Navarro College in Texas. Michael Jolivet, a 6’4″ 240-pound defensive end also from Navarro.

No word yet on how their visit went but one cornerback cancelled his visit to go to Boise State instead.

Mesa Community College offensive tackle David Griffin had committed to South Alabama a couple of months ago, but after visiting the University of Hawaii he has switched his committment from the Jags to the Warriors.

Griffin had committed to South Alabama to be closer to his family however his time in Arizona made it easier for him to commit to Hawaii after a good recruiting visit. Since Griffin is a JuCo player, he can sign in December and will have two years of eligibility.

Another JuCo target Jerome McClain, a 6’2″ 290-pound defensive tackle from Pensacola who is playing for Northwest Mississippi Community College visited South Alabama last weekend and was close to giving his commitment at that time. He then visted Memphis over the weekend. McClain said his top three so far are South Alabama, Memphis and Florida Atlantic. He is set to visit the Owls on January 4th.

Defensive Coordinator Bill Clark interviewed at Jacksonville State on Saturday as well as West Alabama head coach Will Hall and possibly other candidates.

Clark is an Anniston native and a JSU graduate.

Hall, 32, finished his second season as the head coach at West Alabama after serving three years at their offensive coordinator. He was an All-America quarterback for North Alabama. UWA went 9-4 this past season to win the Gulf South Conference and splitting the Division II national finalist Valdosta State. His 2011 team went 8-4.

However another name has surfaced recently in Tyler Siskey. Siskey, another Anniston native, is a 1996 Donoho graduate and is interested in the job.

Siskey is currently Ole Miss’ director of recruiting development. Previously he spent four years as Arkansas State’s receivers coach and was the offensive coordinator for the Red Wolves in the bowl when Hugh Freeze left for the Ole Miss head coaching job.

Siskey commented that “It’s home, it fits and it’s a fit on both sides. We both share the same vision, and that is to win and to win big and to win now.”
