Two-star safety Kenneth West of Miami (Okla.) Northeastern Oklahoma A&M is signed, sealed and delivered. So which team was able to land the two-star safety that is 6-foot and 180 pounds? What about the rest of his teammates, too?
“Kenneth signed with New Mexcio,” said NEO assistant coach Donnie Bigby. “They’re getting a good one there.”
NEO also has three other players that could sign Division I letters of intent here at the mid-term signing day, but it looks like all three have yet to make a decision.
“(Offensive lineman) Mike Mengers hasn’t decided yet,” Bigby said. “He promised the coaches at North Texas that he would visit down there before he did something. He’s also looking hard at Tulsa.”
Mengers is a three-star offensive lineman that is 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds. Also still undecided is another offensive lineman Brian Bacuoms. Bacuoms is set to decide between Temple and New Mexico next week some time.
“Brian has been in the hospital fighting an infection,” Bigby said. “But we expect him to be back next week and figure things out next week. We heard he might be heading to Temple.”
Then the other big fish that’s undecided is three-star defensive end Abraham Wright.
“He’s all over the map right now,” his coach said. “It’ll be Monday before we know on him.”
Wright has visited Missouri, Colorado, Texas A&M and is hoping to visit Tulsa this weekend.
