App Trail: App State football gets another commit, Latrell Gibbs finds a place to play

  • 0

Latrell Gibbs breaks up a pass during Appalachian State's 2015 game against Arkansas State. Gibbs, then a sophomore, would go on to become an all-Sun Belt first team member with seven interceptions. 

Appalachian State football continued its recent recruiting tear on Thursday by picking up another commitment for the 2019 class. 

Wide receiver Dashaun Davis, who will play his senior season at Deerfield Beach High School in Florida, announced his commitment through Twitter.

Davis is the first wide receiver commit of the Mountaineers 2019 recruiting class and the seventh overall. He is the fourth player to commit to App State in an eight-day stretch. 

Evan Conley, a quarterback, was the first of this recent recruiting wave to latch on to the Mountaineers. The rising senior at Kell High School in Georgia announced his decision on June 13. A day later, Southeast Guilford cornerback Tre Caldwell did the same. 

Then, on Tuesday, safety Nick Ross — a teammate of Conley's — became the sixth commitment of the 2019 class. 

That quartet joins defensive lineman Luke Smith, cornerback Alex Angus and offensive lineman Lyle Hiers in App State's recruiting class.

The earliest these players can sign is Dec. 19, the first day of Division I's early signing period for college football. That signing period last three days, ending on Dec. 21.

To see Davis' highlights, watch the video below:

Gibbs heading to West Georgia

Latrell Gibbs, a former cornerback for App State, has found another school to play football. 

Gibbs announced on Twitter that he would play at West Georgia this season. It'll be his first season of football since his sophomore year with the Mountaineers in 2015.

Gibbs had seven interceptions in 2015, including an interception in App State's first bowl game, a 31-29 win against Ohio in the Camellia Bowl. He was named to the all-Sun Belt first team that season as well. 

But before the 2016 season, he was declared academically ineligible and hasn't played since. 

Gibbs, a Kennesaw, Ga. native, joins a West Georgia program that went 9-4 last season.
