At running back the Mids added Ernest Alexander (5-9, 210) who missed most of five games his senior year due to a knee injury. Alexander, who was a Georgia State wrestling champion, also had offers from Air Force, Army and Presbyterian. Alexander will likely play B-back in the Mids' offense.
Dishan Romine (5-10, 180) is an impressive looking running back from Louisville, Kentucky. Last season he rushed for 1,542 yards, averaging 6.8 yards per carry, and scored 15 touchdowns in ten games. The speedy Romine originally committed to Western Kentucky before changing his mind to join Navy. Romine also had offers from Ball State, Toledo, Harvard and Wofford.
John Brown is a 5-10, 180 pound running back from North Carolina. Brown is a strong runner with a rather deceptive running stride.
Josh Walker, from Austin high in Alabama, is another running back who will join the program. As a senior Walker rushed for 1,206 yards and nine touchdowns. He also caught 44 passes for 491 yards and three touchdowns. Walker was a first-team selection on the Class 4A-6A All-Area football team in Alabama.
Calvin Cass Jr. had a huge senior season at St. Augustine Prep in Sicklerville, New Jersey. Cass rushed for 2,001 yards and scored 37 touchdowns in 2012. Cass chose Navy over an offer from Army where his father was a very good running back.
Fullback Colton Plante played on both sides of the ball for First Academy in Windermere, Fla. He ran for 612 yards, averaged 7.9 yard per carry and scored 11 touchdowns. Plante was recommended to the staff by former Navy head coach Charlie Weatherbie.
