OGDEN — Weber State football coach John L. Smith was hired late in the recruiting process after Ron McBride's retirement this offseason, but he likes the recruits he signed Wednesday.

Smith signed 18 kids in this class with possibly a few more to come. The Wildcats were able to sign six in-state players:

-- DE AJ Wilcox out of Syracuse High School

-- CB Davonte Maez out of Hunter High School

-- DL Shane Oliverson out of Preston High School (Idaho)

-- OL Austin Mikkelson out of Pine View High School

-- QB Breck Lewis out of Spanish Fork High School

-- DE Siamani Harris out of Hunter High School

Smith believes that some of the incoming freshmen have a chance to make immediate impacts in 2012.
