Rams Recruiting Update: Bobo receives two verbals from the Lone Star State

With the early signing period just around the corner, Colorado State’s 2019 recruiting class is starting to take shape.

The Rams lost 3-star defensive tackle Austin Williams, who flipped his commitment to Colorado over the weekend. Williams originally committed to CSU on Dec. 6, but after taking an official visit to Boulder, the 6’4”, 288-pound defensive tackle has decided to play for Mel Tucker and the Buffaloes.

Losing Williams to the in-state rival was surely a disappointing blow to Mike Bobo. That being said, the coaching staff received good news when both Jaylen Hearst and Brandon Crossley announced their intentions to play for the Rams on Monday.

Hearst is a 6’1” wide receiver out of Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Worth, TX. In five games, the 3-star senior had 35 receptions for 547 yards and four touchdowns. According to 247Sports, Hearst holds offers from 18 different Division 1 programs, including six Power 5 offers.

Crossley is a 5’11” cornerback from Little Elm High School (Texas) and has 12 Division 1 offers. Among the programs interested in his services are SMU, Texas Tech and TCU.

On Monday, Crossley tweeted that he will sign with the Rams on Wednesday. In-state commit Aidan Cullen also recently announced that he will sign during the early period as well.

Bobo is expected to meet with the press on Wednesday to discuss the players that sign. Follow Rams Report for updates from Canvas Stadium.
