"Mike Empey had called me right before my bowl game (Clo Bowl) but I heard they had let him go," Monroe said. He gave me coach Tidwell's number and told me he had passed down my tape to him but I haven't heard back from him. Since Mike Empey has been gone I haven‘t received anything."
As a freshman safety, Monroe exploded onto the junior college experience scene ending the season with 7 interceptions to be ranked within the top 5 cornerback prospects in all of California.
"I ended up fourth in Cal but in Northern Cal I was second," Monroe said.
For his sophomore year, Monroe's numbers were a bit more modest as coaches learned from the previous year.
"I had two interceptions this year [compared to 7 last year]," said Monroe. "I had 1 punt return for a touchdown. I was third in Northern California in punt returns and had 35 tackles on the season. I had around 5 pass breakups and 3 PAT blocks. I play both safety and corner back this year."
Monroe hopes BYU will contact him soon prior to LOI day in the hopes that they will offer him a scholarship. The University of Texas El Paso is recruiting Monroe and has two close friends in Jeremy and Victor Jones who currently attend at the university.
"BYU's my number one spot; I would really love to go up there," Monroe concluded.
