July 3rd is just around the corner, and what that means at the United States Military Academy at West Point is Reception Day commonly know as R-Day. Which means, that ALL (recruited athletes & non-recruited) make their way to officially start their journey to join the Long Gray Line and of course, their emotional good-byes to family & friends.
With that, GoBlackKnights.com shares with you the list of Army’s 2017 Football Recruiting Class, who make-up a segment of the incoming class. We have broken out our list of those entering as direct admits as well as the players coming in via the USMAPS (United States Military Academy Prep School).
For incoming players like OG Kenny Willoughby, this will be a moment in time that he and his family will never forget.
"I'm leaving Thursday to go to my dad's house in Virginia and we are driving from there early Sunday morning," said the big offensive lineman.
"I leave the 27th and I'm excited to start a new journey better yet meet my future brothers," declared quarterback/athlete Jordan Johnson out of Texas, who will be joined by his parents.
