After the year the Texas State Bobcats had their wasn’t much to be proud of, but there seems to be a hope that next year will be better. The 2016 season was a rough one for Everett Withers in his first year as head coach.
The Bobcats already had the number one recruiting class in the Sun Belt Conference and on Friday they added to their top recruiting class. Josh Newman a safety from Cedar Hill committed to Texas State.

Texas State needs all the help they can get, especially players from winning programs like Cedar Hill. The Bobcats only managed two wins this season and one was a triple overtime thriller the first week of the season against Ohio. Withers’ trademark saying from his first day on campus was “Party in the endzone” well, there was plenty of that, but too bad it was the opponents partying.
If Withers can pull off the top recruiting class in the conference after being award by CBS as the worst team in college football this season, that is saying something. One thing about having such a bad record is that you can easily offer potential recruits the opportunity to play early with most spots being open for competition.
