LOGAN — The Utah State Aggies fall football season may be postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but recruiting, as always, is never ending.
If you needed evidence to that fact, the Aggies picked up their latest verbal commitment for the 2021 season late Thursday night, from running back Miles “Juice” Friday.
Friday announced his commitment to the Aggies on Twitter, in a video where he thanked his parents, teammates and former coaches for their collective impact on his life, before donning blue Aggie football gear and declaring for Utah State.
