Signing Day 2007

Alamogordo's stud C.J. Oakley signed with New Mexico. Where did everyone else end up? Check it out and see which school your favorite New Mexico stud will play next season.

2007 Signing day has come and gone.  We have a chance to look at who went were and what is that school getting. 


It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that on paper it University of New Mexico clearly won the in state battle.  The Lobos dominated the entire state picking up New Mexico's top talent.  The Lobo coaching staff was able to land Brett Kennedy, Bubba Forrest, Michael Muniz, C. J. Oakley and Michael Scarlett.  They also landed Kevin Chavez but he is rumored to be on a baseball scholarship. 


New Mexico State didn't land any in state kids.  They did however, get Brian Mead and also Randy Franzoy to come and walk on.  NMSU did get DT Ebbie Cannon from NMMI. 


Taking a look at the out of state guys, Air Force picked up a speedy playmaker in Aaron Springer while Texas Tech got big Omar Castillo to sign on the dotted line.  Rishard Matthews committed to Oregon he has New Mexico ties being that he played in New Mexico as a junior.

From a JUCO standpoint, NMMI got the majority of the top end talent that didn't sign with major schools.  Getting commitments from Jamil Wilson, Chris Story, Kyle Rodriquez, Sam Talent, Chance Robledo, Jay Johnson, Caleb Choate, Michael Gerber, Tim Rogers, Josh Browning, Tyler Smith, Wes Byrd, Erret Grubbs, Estevan Lucero, Antwone Johnson, Brett Garner and Drew White.

Sandia stud athlete Derrius Jackson will head to Arizona to play for national junior college power Glendale Community College.

Finally Aztec's record setting signal caller Ryley Hegarty signed on with Brown University.  It's obvious that Hegarty gets it done on the field and in the classroom.

To all the student athletes who were fortunate enough to sign on the dotted line yesterday two things.  One best of luck at the next level, we know you will do all of New Mexico proud.  Two we give you all a standing ovation for a job well done. 

Tomorrow we will take a look at next years players that might have a shot to play at the next level.  We will give a breakdown of the top 5 players heading into next season, our look at it anyway.
