Aggies get commitment from 3-star RB

Coach DeWayne Walker has a verbal commitment from a 3-star running back from Golden West CC (Hunnington Beach, CA).

Michael Pierre, 5'11, 200, and a 3-star prospect who hails from Orlando, FL, played in nine games for the Rustler football team in 2011. Pierre also possesses 4.38 speed.

Pierre racked up a total of 730 yard rushing racking up 6 touchdowns in nine games. His longest touchdown was a 75-yard run. Pierre finished the 2011 strong scoring on each of the last five games with the Rustlers.

The 21-year old sophomore will obtain his AA degree in human behavior this December and is then headed to NMSU in the spring.

Pierre was a highly sought after prospect with several offers including Texas Tech, California, San Jose State, New Mexico State, and Utah. Texas Tech was the leading contender for his rushing services but NMSU won out in the end.

Pierre marks the sixth verbal commit for NMSU in the 2012 recruiting class, all of them JUCO transfers. Pierre makes the third offensive player for coach Walker's 2012 recriting list.
