Jacksonville to get Charles Dowdy 

By Jason Lieser

Dwyer’s signing class is up to six now that offensive lineman Charles Dowdy is committed to Jacksonville, Panthers coach Jack Daniels said.

Dowdy (6-2, 245) was the highest rated blocker on the Panthers’ 2009 state championship team.

He plans to sign tomorrow, alongside teammates Mike Fleurizard (Marshall) and Mike Ruiz (South Dakota).

Jacksonville had 10 local players on its roster and recently got a commitment from Treasure Coast linebacker Ed Foley as well.

All commitments are non-binding. No player is locked into a school until he signs a national letter of intent. The first day seniors can sign is tomorrow, national signing day.
