Hunter Wood played with the EXPRESS also.

He committed to Arkansas but has since committed to Howard.

This group of players were very talented and alot of fun to coach !

Several other team members have committed to JUCO's.

Is Howard a juco or did he go to another 4 year school?  I heard that he was looking at a college in Texas and possibly one in Arizona.  Did Petrino sign anywhere yet?

I'm pretty sure Howard is a JC in Texas that is normally a top 2-3 team in the JUCO ranks every year.  Bleeker transfered there last year and I think Kreder played there.  It is a solid program that has a ton of talent.  I think the reason Wood didn't sign with us is a learning disability hurt him make the ACT score to get qualified.
