Also Marchalo Judge, Safety from Tampa, FL

I checked the other kids twitter accounts that we had on our list and didn't see anyone else saying they were decommitting yet...actually found another one who'd accepted, Ben Klett, OLB from Lake Zurich, although the tweet was from the 9th and hasn't tweeted after that point.

Here's what we know so far on recruits that had, at one point, verbally committed to Western:

William Bradley-King (OLB from Kansas City, MO) - decommitted after coaching change, has offers from all MVFC teams except Youngstown State, Indiana State and Illinois State
Dante Cleveland (DE from Hoffman Estates, IL) - decommitted after coaching change, offers from Florida Atlantic, Army, Air Force, Ball State, North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, Austin Peay, South Dakota
Marchalo Judge (S from Tampa, FL) - decommitted after coaching change, offers from Illinois, New Mexico, Toledo, Florida International, Florida A&M, Alcorn State. Not sure if it means anything, but retweeted Coach Fishers twitter post about being hired as our HC...so maybe he's still keeping an eye on us.
Phillip Powell (WR from Chicago, IL) - decommitted after coaching change, offer from South Dakota

Kyle Sanft (OG from Bartlett, IL) - no mention of decommitting, still has Western photo on twitter profile, listed in description, and retweeting Coach Fisher tweets.
Tyler Tsagalis (QB from Mt. Prospect, IL) - same as Sanft, Western still listed, no mention of decommitting
Sam Ruetz (OL/C from Franklin, WI...same hometown as Sean McGuire) - no mention of decommitting, Western still listed on twitter profile
Ben Klett (RB & OLB from Lake Zurich, IL) - no mention of decommitting, Western still listed on twitter profile
Avery Andrews (DB from Springfield, IL) - no mention of decommitting

For the regular recruiting calendar, we have this week as a contact period, quiet period on the 10th, dead period from 11-14, then contact period from the 15th to the 30th. Signing day is February 3rd. For definitions of the various recruiting periods...http://www.ncaa.org/student-athletes/re ... -calendars

I hope Bradley-King and the safety from Florida still decide on wiu. I think they will be solid.

Looks like coach is hitting up the Chicago area over the next few days. Also, noticed he's started including a new hashtag... #EspiritdeCorps. I like it.

Looks like Coach Fisher and Coach Malone met with Kyle Sanft (OG from Bartlett, IL) and his family today.

Noticed that we've put out an offer to Jacione Fugate, a RB from Kecoughtan HS in Hampton, VA
The Hampton/Norfolk/Virginia Beach area is a big recruiting hotbed, and is just down the road from Richmond....so I'd bet this is a kid that Fisher has had his eye on for a while.
According to his twitter account, this is his 8th offer, so no promises he'll chose Western. Although if he has a connection with Fisher or Rocco, that might help.

His Rivals page (https://sports.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/ ... ate-170821) lists offers from Charlotte (CUSA), Norfolk State, and Towson.
Here's his Hudl page for highlights and info: http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2599500/jacione-fugate

His twitter also lists offers from Eastern Michigan, Hampton, and Delaware State. Not sure who the other school is, but he does follow a lot of Old Dominion coaches, so maybe them...hard to say.

I'm just going to leave this here....I don't know anything about his current status beyond what's mentioned in this post, but he was HS teammates and friends with current Leatherneck LB Brett Taylor.
