Northern Arizona is making some in-state moves.
Prior to yesterday the Lumberjacks had offered just one local prospect, Basha RB Rajhan Meriwether, but Thursday they extended offers to Desert Ridge LB Amoni Itaaehau, Hamilton WR Israel Simpson and Sahuaro ATH Cole Sterns.
We have confirmed that two more local players have been offered.
Chandler High head coach Shaun Aguano says, "NAU has offered Jordan Hoyt and Cruz Flores." Both play defensive tackle for the Wolves.
This is the first offer for both prospects.
Hoyt missed his junior season with an injury but Aguano expects big things from him. "Jordan is about to blow up. He is the leader of our defense."
Cruz (6-1 265), who reports a 400 pound bench, made 18 tackles and 1 sack as a junior.
