Dana Holgorsen and staff picked up three new commitments over the weekend. Two JUCO players – Sedrick Williams and Jayce Rogers – along with James Faminu from London are the new additions.
Defensive tackle Sedrick Williams was the Southwestern Junior College Football Conference MVP this year. He finished the season with 7 sacks and 18 QB hurries in just 10 games for Kilgore JC. Williams also blocked a kick this season.
Here are his season highlights:
James Faminu – at 6’6″ and 343 lbs – has great size for an offensive tackle. The downside is he’s only played football for about two years. While he definitely needs a redshirt in order to the nuances of the collegiate game, there are encouraging signs. His footwork seems pretty good for a guy of his size and experience level.

On the other end of the size spectrum is Jayce Rogers. Rogers is a 5’8″ cornerback out of Northwest Mississippi CC and Valdosta HS in Georgia before that. Out of high school, he committed to WVU before going the JUCO route. UH co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Doug Belk was his lead recruiter at WVU and presumably was the lead here.
Rogers is a hard-hitting maniac on the outside. His highlight HUDL film shows a guy that plays beyond his size. He’s a real football player.
Signing day is next Wednesday, December 18. View the recruiting profiles of all of UH’s 2020 football commits.
