Howard's 2010 Football Recruiting Class Announced

Howard University head football coach Carey Bailey announces the signing of student athletes to letters of intent.

Among them Daniel Mendoza (FB), 6-1, 232 from Colonial High School/Hudson Valley JUCO/ Orlando, FL; Ibrahima Kalil Kebe(DL)6-2, 275from DC's Wilson High School; and Cameron Alston (DB), 6-0, 180 out of North Augusta High School, N. Augusta, SC.

Howard was able to address needs on the defensive line where it was hurt by graduation and the offensive line where there was a lack of depth. Coach Bailey also signed a punter, a running back, a fullback and two defensive backs.

“We are excited about this class because it’s our first time being able to go out early and sign the people we wanted,” said Coach Bailey, who will be entering his fourth year at the helm. “We were able to get quality players.”

Coach Bailey added that he will eventually sign 22 new recruits and at least three transfers in an effort to improve on last season’s record.

“We don’t believe the past dictates our future,” said Coach Bailey. “We are optimistic about our future. We have an older team, we have players who are seasoned and we feel very good about this recruiting class.”
