USA Football Signs Another Defensive Lineman For 2014 Class
The South Alabama football program announced that they have signed Dondre Chanet to a National Letter-of-Intent on Monday. Chanet will enroll at USA in the fall.
Chanet is a 6’1″, 315-pound defensive lineman from Hutchison (KS) Community College and will join the Jaguars with two seasons of eligibility remaining. He brings the Jaguars 2014 recruiting class up to 22 student-athletes.
Last fall he was a second-team All-Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference selection after recording 33 tackles, including 3.5 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, one recovered fumble and one pass break up. He recorded a season-best seven tackles, including one for a loss, against nationally ranked Butler (KS) CC.
He also recorded six tackles and a fumble recovery against Independence (KS) CC. He also helped his team defeat Dakota College at Bottineau 57-0 in the Salt Lake City Bowl to end the season ranked 17th in the final National Junior College Athletic Association poll.
He is the third JuCo defensive lineman to sign with South Alabama. They are filling big shoes left when a number of defensivie lineman graduated, some from the first-ever freshman recruiting class to sign with South Alabama.
The Jags finished 6-6 overall and 4-3 in Conference play in their first season as a full FBS member and fifth season of football ever.
