Dover, Del. (Dec. 19, 2018) ---Delaware State Head Football Coach Rod Milstead has announced that two high school seniors and a junior college transfer have signed to attend the University and compete for the Hornets beginning in 2019.
Quarterback Tylik Bethea of Brooklyn, N.Y., two-way standout Wade Inge II of Williamstown, N.J., and defensive back Miquan Hall of Fort Washington, Md., signed scholarship offers from DSU today.
Bethea, a 6-5, 195-pound signal caller, completed 132-of-224 passes (58.9%) for 1,500 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions as a senior at Brooklyn’s Abraham Lincoln High School in 2018. He helped lead Lincoln to two wins in the 2018 New York City Public League Playoffs.
Bethea is expected to enroll at Delaware State in January and participate in the Hornets’ 2019 spring camp.
Inge is coming off a highly successful senior season at Williamstown (N.J) High School. He’s expected to compete at cornerback for the Hornets. As a two-way standout (RB/DB), Inge helped lead the Braves to a 12-1 overall record, highlighted by conference and sectionals championships this past season. He rushed for more than 1700 yards and 20 touchdowns, while tallying more than 500 receiving yards and two scores in 2018.
Inge was a 2018 All-South Jersey First Team and All-State Third Team selection, while earning Player-of-the-Year honors from the Courier-Post, Sun Newspaper, West Jersey Football League and area Touchdown Club.
Hall will have sophomore eligibility for the Hornets in 2019 after competing for ASA College in New York. He was limited to three games due to injury last season, but is expected to be at full speed while challenging for a starting cornerback job at DSU next year.
Hall was a standout at Friendly High School in Fort Washington, Md., before enrolling at ASA College.
“I believe we are off to a good start in our 2019 signings,” said Milstead, whose team had just seven seniors this past season. “The young men we have signed so far are good athletes with the potential contribute right away. “I’m equally impressed with the character and academic credentials of these young men. Each should be a good fit for the team and the university.”
