9th Commit Is Solid
Last Friday, the Bobcats held a recruiting camp in San Marcos and BI was the only outlet on had. With a little over a hundred high school-hopefuls in attendance, it was a difficult place to get noticed, but all it took for Angleton CB Jashon Waddy was one blazing-fast forty-time and he separated himself from the pack. The 5’11”, 166 lbs. corner crushed his forty, timing a 4.5 on the slow sports turf of Bobcat Stadium, and receiving an offer on the spot from head coach Dennis Franchione. It only took him through the weekend to decide that he wanted to commit to Texas State. "I was surprised (when TXST offered) but that's what I came to that camp for so not too surprised,” said Waddy. “I've been waiting for that for a while so it felt good. Coach Fran offered me at the camp. When I committed, I called Coach (Jeff) Conway (Co-Offensive coordinator, Running Backs and Tight Ends Coach), he's the recruiting guy for my area. That's who I've been talking to the most." Waddy garnered interest from SMU, UNT, UTSA, SFA, Utah and Abilene Christian but only held an offers from Army and Air Force. But he just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be a part of the San Marcos community, "I wasn't really that interested (in joining the military) but, when they offered, I thought about it for a little bit. I just really felt comfortable around all the coaches. The three times I visited the campus, I felt I had a real connection with them. Everybody (in San Marcos) is friendly. It's a great environment and I can't wait to be a part of it. I'm going to come for my official visit in the next couple months." He also didn’t shy away from declaring how strong his commitment to Texas State really is. After the camp last week, Waddy said that the Bobcats immediately jumped to top of his list. As surprising as that was for him to say at the time, it was even more surprising when he said that he has shut down his recruiting process and fully intends on becoming a Bobcat, “"It's a full on commit. I really closed down my recruiting process when I committed. The coaches, the town, it just all fits. I’m ready to be a Bobcat.” Waddy plans on making a visit to San Marcos this summer. We’ll keep you updated on his progress.
