27 more prospects have signed to play for South Alabama as the Jaguars prepare to join the Sun Belt Conference in 2012.

“It was a tedious process trying to find the right guys. When it comes down to the end, you really just want to get the best players you can get,” head coach Joey Jones said in a press conference Wednesday. “You want to fill needs, but you don’t want to take a number just because you need another lineman or another guy in the secondary unless they are a very good player. I think we tried to be strict in what we wanted to accomplish with the type of student-athletes we are bringing in.”

Two standout defensive linemen from Prattville (Ala.) High School, Terrance Jones and Jay Minor, inked with the Jags. Both players were rated as high three-star prospects by ESPNU.
