5:40 p.m.: West Alabama has signed for NeMiss players – WR Ricky Bell (Aberdeen); OL Quartney Cox (West Point); LS Holden Coggins (Oak Hill Aca.); and OL Avis Shelton (West Point). West Alabama’s new offensive coordinator is Will Hall, the former Amory and North Alabama standout, and he’s helping spearhead the program’s more intense Mississippi recruiting.
2:20 p.m.: OK, here’s what we’ve got so far, most of which you probably already know about.
• CB Dominique Davenport (Baldwyn) and LB Jacob Sesma (Walnut) to Delta State; also, former Baldwyn QB Blake Barnes is transferring to DSU from Georgia.
• QB Bret Jefcoat (Itawamba AHS) made his official switch from a Louisiana Tech commitment to signing with Southern Miss. Also, former Oxford DB Jamison Hughes has transferred from Ole Miss to USM.
• Expect to have some local kids sign with West Alabama. More later.
11:50 a.m.: Walnut’s Jacob Sesma, who played just about every position on the field, has signed with Delta State. He’ll play linebacker for the Statesmen, who liked his ball-hawking skills. Sesma is 6-2, 218. More to come after I get back from lunch.
11:30 a.m.: Baldwyn cornerback Dominique Davenport, who was a verbal commitment to Ole Miss, signed with Delta State on Wednesday morning. He had also been offered by Southern Miss. Hopefully, I will get him on the phone soon.
