The freshman for Taft High in Woodland Hills, had 35 tackles and two interception for the Corsiars last season.
This comes after Texas State had early offered SMC’s defensive back Qujuan Floyd and offensive lineman Maurquice Shakir.
Though he did not play a single down for the Corsairs, Santa Monica College TE Everton Thaxter has committed to Hampton University, according to offensive coordinator Tim Kaub.
The freshman suited up last season at El Camino College before transfering to SMC during the spring semester.
Thaxter had six catches for 93 yards for El Camino last season.
Hampton University is located southeast Virgina and plays in the Division I Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The Pirates were 3-7 in 2012.
West Los Angeles College’s 2013 football schedule has been released by the Southern California Football Association.
The Wildcats struggled early last season losing four of their first five games before going 4-1 after the bye week to even their record at 5-5.
The schedule is below:
Santa Monica College offensive line coach David Banuelos was named the new head coach of Compton College football program, yesterday.
Banuelos has spent the last three seasons on the Corsairs sideline helping the team win back-to-back conference titles, an accomplishment not done in 30 previous years. One of his players, Moldova-born offensive tackle Alexandru Ceachir, earned a scholarship to UCLA in 2011.
This will not be the first time the St. Bernard alum has been in charge of a program. Banuelos had two stints as head coach at Pierce College in 1999-2000 and 2002-05. He has also been an offensive coordinator at LA Southwest, LA Valley and Santa Monica College.
The desire to lead his own team was too much for Banuelos to pass up.
Santa Monica College‘s football team has been sanctioned with a one-year postseason ban by the Southern California Football Association for a recruiting rule violation according to sources within the school’s athletic department.
The college was still on a self-imposed probation stemming from last year’s post game fight in the American Bowl against East Los Angeles College and the penalty was increased as the Corsairs were deemed a repeat violator. Their probation has been extended for an additional year until 2014.
It is the third time that SMC has been sanctioned in the last five years.
Santa Monica College football head coach Gifford Lindheim was a the finalist for College of the Canyons head coaching job that went to former assistant Ted Iacenda, according to an official with knowledge of the situation.
The Canyons job was a full-time one-year interim position. Lindheim is currently a part-time walk-on coach at SMC.
Lindheim is 24-18 in his four years at SMC including leading the Corsairs to back-to-back Pacific Conference titles in 2011 and 2012. It is the first time SMC has won consecutive league titles since the early 80′s.
Santa Monica College defensive lineman Marcus Manley has committed to Cal after taking an official visit to the campus last week, according to his head coach Gifford Lindheim.
Manley was planning on taking a trip to BYU this week before committing with the Bears. He is expect to sign in February and will transfer in the fall.
“Marcus is a stud. Hardworking, explosive and high energy” said Lindheim about Manley earlier this month. “He also has a knack for blocking PAT’s and field goals.”
The 6’2, 279 pound freshman from Fairfax High had 35 tackles, and a blocked field goal this year for the Corsairs.
Manley was named to the Region V All-California team by the California Community College Coaches Association and the JC Athletic Bureau earlier this week.
