Allen Community College President John Masterson announced at the Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday that recruiting is going well for the school’s athletic programs with several athletes committed to play for the Red Devils in the upcoming year.

“Recruiting is going very well,” Masterson said. “The numbers are there. We definitely have quantity. You never really know about quality until they are here on campus, but the quantity is there.”

Vice President for Finance and Operations Brian Counsil quickly chimed in that the quality is there, based off the fact that 14 of the school’s student-athletes had signed with four-year colleges to continue their athletic careers.

Despite going 15-31, the softball team has 20 commitments for next season, with a few scholarships still waiting to be claimed. The team has 24 total scholarships to use next year.  Macie Cervantes was named first team all-conference and Madisyn Thompson and Meg Kirk were both honorable mention all-conference.   

The men’s baseball team (31-21, 15-17 in conference) has 30 commitments for next season. 

The men’s basketball team has 13 commitments, while the women’s team has 14. Both teams have several visitors coming in the next couple of weeks.

Men’s soccer has 58 commitments for next season, with all but two sophomores signing letters of intent to play at four-year schools. The women’s soccer team has 24 commitments and is currently looking to bring in two to four more athletes.

The volleyball program has 18 athletes committed for next year, which Masterson said was way more than they had at this time last year.

More signings are expect
