WESSON – Copiah-Lincoln Community College head coach Glenn Davis found 21 promising players from across the state and three from out of state to join the 2016 Wolfpack. After a successful season in 2015 that landed the Wolves the No. 4 ranking in the country, Davis hopes these young men will continue the trend of success.

Two members of the class also signed with four-year colleges. Double signing provides insurance for players in case the player does not qualify academically. Tre’Veon “Nero” Nelson (Simmons HS), an athletic player that can fill many roles, signed with Mississippi State, and Eddie “BJ” Maxon (South Panola HS), an offensive lineman, signed with Jackson State. Two other players join the Wolfpack after playing at four-year colleges last season. Isaiah Swopes, a defensive back, joins the team after playing at Belhaven and Tyree Owens, a defensive lineman, from West Virginia.

The class is very diverse in positions, which allows the Wolves to have depth throughout the team. Both Tre’Veon Nelson and Javious Bardney (Calloway HS) participated in the annual Mississippi-Alabama All-Star game. Five members played in the Bernard Blackwell All-Star Classic including Elbert Watson (Rosa Fort HS), an offensive lineman, Damion Dickens (Holmes County Central HS), a linebacker, Jamarcus Weatherall (Greenwood HS), a wide receiver, Alton Conerly (Gulfport HS), a wide receiver, and TJ Gray (Lake HS), a linebacker. Below is a full list of signees.
