Signing day has come and gone, but new Citadel football coach Mike Houston and his staff are still busy signing up players. A recap:

Josh McCoy, a 6-3, 220-pound wide receiver at York High School, signed a national letter of intent with the Bulldogs this week. McCoy caught 64 passes for 673 yards and six touchdowns for York last season, but says The Citadel plans to use him at safety. He also considered Western Carolina, Campbell, Newberry and Charleston Southern.

Running back Michael Pascoe of Orangeburg Prep plans to sign next week, according to the Orangeburg Times and Democract. At 5-9 and 190 pounds, he rushed for 1,484 yards and 13 touchdowns last season for his SCISAA Class AAA team. Pascoe said he was inspired by the success of Orangeburg Prep grad Walker Smith, who was The Citadel’s special teams player of the year last season.

And the Bulldogs have offered Tristan Reaves, a 6-4, 215-pound wide receiver/safety from Harmony High School near Orlando. Reaves had previously committed to South Carolina as a preferred walk-on, according to this story in the Orlando Sentinel. He made 34 catches for 579 yards and five touchdowns last season, and also averaged about six tackles a game from his safety spot, with three interceptions and eight pass break-ups. He’s also had a preferred walk-on offer from Central Florida and is getting attention from Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern as well, according to his father, Rob Reaves. Rob Reaves, Citadel fans might recall, played football and wrestled for The Citadel from 1992-95.
