We know it will be a busy recruiting season at Jefferson, and with three more rising seniors receiving scholarship offers Tuesday, the Dragons now have seven players who have received offers.
The lastest: Two-way lineman Manny Cromuel, cornerback Brandon Simmons and cornerback Rashad Dunnigan received offers from Georgia Southern on Tuesday, the first offer for all three, Jefferson coach Mike Fenton said.
They join receiver Andre Davis, quarterback Quentin Williams, linebacker Ramik Wilson and safety Rodney Mills as players who have received scholarship offers.
The 6-foot-2, 295-pound Cromuel, who started on both sides of the ball last season, had 31 tackles and a sack at nose guard.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Dunnigan led the Dragons with seven passes defended, was second on the team with two interceptions and made 49 tackles. Simmons, a 6-foot, 170-pounder, tallied 19 tackles, two passes defended and one interception.
Georgia Southern, which has long been one of the nation's top Division I-AA programs, was just 5-6 last season, but this offseason hired Georgia Tech assistant Paul Monken as the new coach. Monken was a Georgia Southern assistant under Paul Johnson, the current Yellow Jackets coach who won back-to-back I-AA national championships at Georgia Southern.
