Five recruits signed Letters of Intent on Wednesday to be Fresno State Bulldogs in 2017. The five recruits listed below are eligible to enroll next semester and join the team for spring football practices.
Quarterback Jorge Reyna
Reyna: “I just love Coach Tedford’s philosophy, why he’s at Fresno State, the hopes and commitment we will have, me and him, to build the program and the community. Especially for me, coming as a Hispanic, being at Fresno State, representing hopefully the Hispanic community and showing everybody the blue collar mentality and work ethic that this community has. I’m really happy.
“It feels great [to commit]. Especially Coach Tedford and the location of Fresno State where I have family. It’s an amazing feeling.”
Tight End Gunner Javernick
Javernick: “It’s close to my parents, they are only two hours away. They live in Stockton. I like the way Coach [Tedford] wants the program to go in the right direction. He seems like a winning guy. I like what he did at his old school. I like the offense he runs. It’s just a good spot for me.”
Cornerback Sherman Coleman Jr.
Coleman: “What stood out the most was the tradition, the brotherhood. The whole coaching staff is all Bulldogs. They are all from Fresno State. The city, they show so much love to the Fresno State football team. That right there, that really topped it off. I can see it, from them coming off a bad season, the fans were still there for support. What I feel like what’s going to happen next season, I think there will be some good things coming in California."
Cornerback Matthew Boateng
Offensive Lineman Quireo Woodley
Woodley was a 2016 signee who was not eligible to join the team last fall. Instead, he will start his Bulldog career this spring.
When Woodley committed to the Bulldogs in November of 2010, Scout.com recruiting analyst Greg Biggins said, “When you look at how Woodley performed over the spring at The Opening Regional Camp and then watch his senior film, it's tough to figure out why he's not holding a few Pac 12 offers. At 6-3, 270 pounds, Woodley clocked a 5.22-40, 4.55 in the shuttle and jumped 29" in the vertical.”
