Inside The Huddle: Army Football Updates



There is little to no rest for the weary and that of course would be the Army coaching. First, you have Reception Day coming soon for both direct and prep bound recruiting class of 2012, along with being right in the middle of recruiting for the 2013 prospect, not to mention fall football camp right around the corner.

GoBlackKnights.com returns back to our "Inside The Huddle" feature to bring you tidbits across the spectrum of Army Black Knights' Football.

Recruiting Updates:

Drew Wolitarsky, WR

The speedy wide receiver has picked up three new offers; from Nevada, Minnesota, and Hawaii. Like Turner, he will be attending the San Diego State camp this Sunday and a Rising Stars camp on the 26the.

Later in July, Wolitarsky plans on making his way out to Indiana for the Notre Dame camp.

And when it comes to Army, Wolitarsky these words, "Yea I love the coach, Andy Guyader ... he's a great guy and we keep in touch weekly, It would be stupid not to keep Army in your top list because of the benefits and perks it brings you."

Dakota Turner, DE

Turner just visited Nevada on Wednesday and met with some their coaches. He is heading down to LA on Friday for the UCLA camp on Saturday and down to San Diego for the SDSU camp. Afterwards, he'll be at Utah for the All-Poly camp, then up to Oregon for their camp. Finally, it will be off to Washington for the UW camp and he will also try to visit WSU.

Chris Cardinali, Athlete

Unlike Wolitarsky & Turner, Cardinaili does not have an offer from the Black Knights, but is receiving plenty of attention.

He has already visited Navy, Yale, and Army over the Spring. The prospect out of the Hun School (NJ) is going to Temple's camp this upcoming Sunday and will also be camping at Navy, Yale, Harvard, and Boston College. According to Cardinali, the coaches from Temple, Navy, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Dartmouth, Columbia, Army, JMU, Albany, UPenn, William&Mary, and UMass have all been in contact with him.

He indicated that the most interest is coming from Navy and Yale. He is confident that Temple, William&Mary, UMass, Albany, and some Ivy's will offer him at their camps over the summer.

The Squad:

Sophomore slotback Trenton Turrentine appears to be back and ready to compete this summer/fall. The Keller (Tx) native tore his meniscus in his knee and for the most part, held out of spring practice so that he could heal properly. From all reports, the 5-foot-10, 210 pound running back should be 100% by the time camp opens.

From the Prep School:

As many Army fans already know, cornerback Cortland Fort has opted not to join the 2012 incoming class and will be taking his talents to Wyoming.

In addition, Gavin Maher will not be joining the 2012 class.
