Three schools landed kickers, all some of the top kickers from the prep and JC ranks...

College of the Canyons (Calif.) kicker Ricky Drake is headed to play in the WAC, committing to Nevada, according to Chris Sailer of Chris Sailer Kicking.

"Ricky is an oustanding kicker. He has everything it takes to be a starter at the D1A level. He is strong, accurate, technically sound, and mentally tough. One of the very best JC kickers in the country. Great fit for Nevada Reno," said Sailer.

Scott Lopano will be Ivy League bound, committing to kick at Pennsylvania according to Sailer.

"Scott is an oustanding kicker. He has a great leg and shows great consistency off the ground. A constantly improving kicker that has proven that he is ready for the college level and also a very capable punter," said Sailer.

Drew Jarrett will be kicking at Virginia, likely greyshirting for the Cavs.

"He's been guaranteed a scholarship after the first semester," said Sailer. "Drew is an outstanding kicker. He has a strong leg and gets great height on his field goals. Already kicks off the ground. Also very dominating on kickoffs. One of the very best in the nation."
