June 28, 2012
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Navy head football coach Ken Niumatalolo released the names of the 2012 Navy football recruits on Thursday evening as 58 prospects representing 19 states went through induction ceremonies and began plebe summer.
"We are excited about the group we brought in this year," said Niumatalolo. "If they work hard and do the things they are supposed to do in Bancroft Hall, in the classroom, in the weight room and on the practice field they will have a chance to contribute."
Texas and California produced the most prospects with eight, while six hail from Florida and Maryland. Georgia produced five prospects, while Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia all produced three.
