Big weekend haul for Western Kentucky 

January, 29, 2013
Coach Bobby Petrino and his staff have added several new commitments, according to multiple sources. The group includes Drew Davis (Madison, Ala./Bob Jones), Kylen Towner (Mobile, Ala./St. Paul's Episcopal), Demarcus Glover (Pensacola, Fla./Pine Forest), Nicholas Norris (Miami/Booker T. Washington), Leverick Jackson (Miami/Northwestern) and Jimmie Sims (New Orleans/McDonogh 35).

The Hilltoppers pulled Davis and Towner out of Alabama. Davis, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound linebacker, registered 165 tackles including 16 tackles for loss as a senior. Towner, a 5-foot-7, 170-pound corner, possesses a combine-verified 4.57 40 speed, a 4.38 20-yard shuttle, 35.3-inch vertical and 89.64 SPARQ.

Both Nicholas and Jackson are products of the fertile Miami recruiting grounds. The 5-foot-8, 150-pound Nicholas runs a 4.6 40 and selected WKU over an offer from Marshall. Jackson's a 6-foot, 190-pound safety.
