Cougars take down Marshall

College Station running back Chris Monroe (20) hugs quarterback Marguez Perez (1) Friday night, Dec. 2, 2016, after a playoff win against Fort Bend Marshall High School, in Prairie View, Texas.

There are just three days until Wednesday’s National Signing Day and a good portion of Brazos Valley recruits have already verbally committed to where they’ll be playing in college.

College Station running back Chris Monroe on Sunday announced his commitment to Texas Lutheran over Twitter.

After praying and putting my trust in god I have decided to commit to Texas Lutheran University!” Monroe said in his Twitter post.

Monroe’s commitment came on the heels of a busy Saturday.

A&M Consolidated cornerback Tyon Merchant, who was once committed to Oklahoma State, pledged to Sam Houston State, joining Collge Station quarterback Ty Brock.

Merchant’s teammate, H-back and tight end Grant Johnson, will remain a Tiger after committing to East Texas Baptist.

Rudder wide receivers Ladarius Johnson and Josh Johnson, currently starring for the Rangers' basketball team, committed to Cisco College. They’ll join Rudder defensive lineman Alex Arevalo at Cisco.

Several College Station players still remain undecided, including offensive lineman Josh Donovan, linebacker Mark Wagner and defensive back Jarren Jones.

Donovan, who decommitted from North Texas on Nov. 3, has recently taken visits to New Mexico State and UL-Monroe. Jones has an offer to play from Hardin-Simmons but has not yet decided and Wagner has interest from several Division III and Ivy League schools.

A&M Consolidated wide receiver Tony Williams is also still undecided. Williams has offers from Midwestern State, Abilene Christian, Missouri Southern and Texas Lutheran.

Normangee offensive lineman Trent Navarro visited Sul Ross State on Friday and has verbally committed with the Lobos. Navarro was a Class 2A Associated Press Sports Editors all-state honorable mention this season.
