Army host Fordham and several football prospects

Army will be looking to get back on the winning track after suffering a disappointing loss to Vanderbilt of the SEC last weekend. Needless to say, Michie Stadium has been good to the Black Knights where they are 2-1 with wins over Northwestern and Tulane.

With a sellout crowd expected as Army host Fordham, there will be approximately 27 recruits on hand to take in Saturday's contest that kicks off at 3:30pm (EST).

For all Army home games, they serve as an opportunity for prospects from all over the country to make their way to the historical campus to see the Black Knights' football program and West Point, up close and personal.

Headlining the visitors are athlete Adam Nix, who will be making his way from Charlotte (NC) and 5-foot-11, 180 pound cornerback Jalen Noble, who is out of Blacklick (OH) St. Francis DeSales, along with Tanner Thexton, where the 6-foot-5, 235 defensive is coming from neighboring Somerville (NJ) Somerville High School.

For Nix, who has the Black Knights number one on his list, it will be his first visit to the West Point campus and will be making the journey North with his father, Jerry.

Others who are scheduled to be in attendance are:

Eldridge Anderson; Roger Ball;Alex Bran;Cale Brewer; Craig Bruno; Brian Collier; Jimmy Cox; Chuck Dailey; Jevon Elmore; Bobby Farrington; Justin Fleo; Eric Goins; Oscar Hall; Jared Harris; Dylan Leeming; Brian Mitchell; Stefan Moreau; John Myers; Kyle Russell; Matthew Simpson; Nolan Stokes ; Trevor Surratt and Nicholas Tuerk.
