UH lands slew of verbal JUCO, international commitments

Houston’s 2020 recruiting class is beginning to take shape.

With early signing day on Dec. 18, the Cougars landed five verbal commitments Monday from an array of places outside of high schools.

Two international recruits will call Houston home in 2020 and beyond. UH picked up offensive tackle James Faminu, hailing from London, and punter Laine Wilkins from Australia.

Faminu has the prototypical offensive tackle size, measuring in at 6’6″ and 343 pounds. 247 Sports graded him as a two-star recruit. He chose Houston over UMass, Southwest Minnesota State and others.

“This is just another step to achieving my goals and the work starts now,” Faminu said on Twitter.
