MSJC football players Phillip Napoleon and London Miller both signed National Letters of Intent to NCAA Division I schools today, the first day junior college mid year transfers were allowed.
Napoleon, a San Diego Helix HS graduate, signed with Oregon State University. Napoleon finished the 2015 season with 4 sacks and 12 tackles for loss on his way to being named First Team All American Mountain League. A two year starter for the Eagles, Napoleon finished his two year career with 84 total tackles and 9.5 sacks. Oregon State is a member of the Pac 12 conference and their head coach is Gary Anderson.
Miller inked his letter of intent with Ohio University. The Bobcats are members of the Mid American Conference and are currently 8-4 on the 2015 season and getting ready to play in the Raycom Media Bowl. Miller was a First Team All American Mountain League selection this Fall for MSJC as he recorded 41 tackles and had 2 interceptions. Miller is a graduate of Menifee Paloma Valley High School. The Bobcats will now have a defensive back from MSJC for the third straight year, as former MSJC stand out Brett Layton is currently finishing his senior year at Ohio.
The Eagles are hoping to announce a couple more mid year signings in the coming days and will have a full slate of sophomores making their four year college choices later this Spring.
