The three newcomers join the 10 future Widcats who committed on National Signing Day (Feb. 7) and the seven commitments from Early Signing Day (Dec. 20) for a class total of 20 student-athletes.

Here is a glimpse of the three newest incoming UNH football players:

Andrew Carter is a two-way lineman from North Andover (Mass.) High School who served as captain his senior season when the team posted a 9-2 record and advanced to the Division 2 North championship game. The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Carter was selected as the Team MVP Lineman and was an All-Merrimack Conference Division 2 selection. He also has played lacrosse for North Andover and will run track this spring.

What McDonnell says:

“Andrew is a long, athletic offensive lineman who has a great frame to work with. His wingspan will help him in pass protection at the college level. We are excited to see him develop here at UNH.”

Christian Peete attended Hebron Academy as a post-graduate student in 2017. In his post-grad year, Peete was an All-New England Prep School First-Team performer, a NEPSAC First-Team selection and was tabbed the Hebron Academy team MVP. Peete previously attended Portsmouth High School. He was a three-year standout wide receiver/quarterback/defensive back for the Clippers prior to missing his senior campaign due to injury. Peete was a New Hampshire East Division I All-Conference team member as a junior and senior and played in the CHaD East-West All-Star Game in 2017. The two-time high school basketball state champion now plays for the Hebron basketball team.

What McDonnell says:

“Christian is a kid we have watched for the last two years and seen great development as a player. His prep school year was outstanding and will help him immensely at the college level. His athletic ability and toughness will help us on either side of the ball and add depth to our special teams. He’s another New Hampshire kid who adds versatility to our program.”

Jacob Post, a running back from Timberlane Regional High School, was selected as a New Hampshire South Division 1 All-Conference Team member as a sophomore and junior, when he rushed for 1,341 yards. In 2016, Post was also selected as an Eagle-Tribune All Star. Despite having his senior year cut short due to injury, Post was a four-time varsity letter winner who served as team captain in 2016 and 2017. He also was a decorated wrestler for the Owls.

What McDonnell says:

“Jacob was one of the better running backs in the state of New Hampshire during his sophomore and junior years. We look forward to seeing him get healthy and add depth to the running back position here at UNH. He possesses great vision, speed and balance for a running back at this level.”
