USM lands special teams commitment from Coast product

Southern Miss received a verbal commitment from a special teams player for the second straight day on Sunday.

UAB transfer Nick Vogel, a freshman kicker, committed to the Golden Eagles on Saturday. 

On Sunday, Pearl River Community College long-snapper Bobby Daggett gave his verbal commitment to USM. He will be a walk-on when he arrives.

The Pascagoula product will likely redshirt the 2015 season at USM with starting long-snapper Lance Schuffert returning for his senior campaign.

Daggett said Sunday that he expects to have a chance to earn a scholarship once Schuffert completes his eligiblity.

Daggett has always been a consistent performer at an underrated position.
