THREE TO SEE
Keyshawn Smith, wide receiver
Averaged 21.3 yards per catch as a junior with 14 touchdowns receptions that earned him offers from nearly all of the Mountain West.
Kenneth Stevenson, running back
Next in line as the primary ball carrier for the Hornets but was also the leading tackler a season ago.
Marquese Allen-Patmon, linebacker
Junior season performance earned him double-digit scholarship offers while maintaining a GPA of 4.08.
Chris Davila returns at QB from the 2018 season, and talented junior Tyler Jensen has transferred in giving the Hornets two solid options.
The Hornets picked up several transfers in the offseason that added to an already talented roster returning. Depth will come in handy to coach Dunn who dealt with a very thin roster at times last season.
The 2018 Hornets played a 16-game schedule that included a D-2 CIF Championship and an eventual loss in the D3-AA state title game, but a jump up to D-1 and a Western League that remains strong will make the chances of a repeat extremely tough.
