Johnson C. Smith has added four more football recruits to its 2014 signing class, including a pair of defensive ends and a quarterback from Charlotte.

The Golden Bulls got commitments from defensive ends Dave Mann of Fairburn, Ga., and Jerrod Inman of Lithonia, Ga., offensive lineman Melvin Johnson and quarterback Allen Calvert of Charlotte.

The signings bring the Golden Bulls’ recruiting class to 12.

“We recruit each year based on specific needs,” JCSU coach Steve Aycock said. “We have a few more slots to fill, but I feel like we’re headed in a solid direction.”

Calvert (6-0, 185) played at First Assembly Christian in Concord, where he completed 57-of-120 passes (47.5 percent) for eight touchdowns in 2012, according to MaxPreps.com. He also rushed for 520 yards and five scores on 105 carries, averaging 4.95 yards an attempt.

Johnson, a native of Brandy Station, Va., is the fourth offensive lineman signed by JCSU, which graduates four starters from last season. He played at Fork Union Military Academy.

Inman (6-1, 215), who also played outside linebacker and long snapper at Miller Grove High, tallied 59 tackles as a senior, including 12 sacks and a touchdown. He also recovered a pair of fumbles and earned a spot in DeKalb County’s all-star game. 

Mann, a 6-3, 253-pound sophomore who played at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, will contend immediately for playing time on a defensive line that lost three of its top four defensive ends.

JCSU opens the 2014 season against the Charlotte 49ers  on Sept. 6.
