Aggies finalize 2020 signing class

NMSU

LAS CRUCES, NM (KTSM) – Four high school standouts and one junior college playmaker have committed to play football at New Mexico State.

Defensive lineman Garrett Bishop, offensive lineman Jae’vone Brown, wide receiver Cole Harrity, halfback Larenzo McMillan and wideout Ja’Darion Smith signed with the Aggies on National Signing Day, rounding out the program’s 2020 signing class. Wednesday’s additions raise NMSU’s crop of signees to 17.

The Aggies inked the majority of their newcomers (12) during the NCAA’s early signing period in December before adding the five today. Ten of NMSU’s 17 total signees enrolled early and will participate with the team during spring practice.

The signing class now features 10 offensive weapons and seven defensive disruptors, including five defensive backs, five wide receivers, three offensive linemen, two defensive linemen, one running back and one quarterback.

Nine states are represented, with eight student-athletes coming from California, two hailing from Texas and one each from Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Washington.
