 Waters, a 6-foot-4, 258-pound offensive tackle, was recruited as an offensive lineman for the Buccaneers of the Big South Conference.

“It’s awesome,” Waters said of joining Jamey Chadwell, the first year head coach at CSU. “It’s been a long road since my freshman year.

“He’s one of the best offensive lineman I have coached at Greer,” said Young. “He will be a success in football and in life.”

Waters played in the North-South All-Star Game following his senior season. He ranks in the top 9 percent of his class.

Waters is the son of Sebrina Waters Westmoreland and Larry Westmoreland.

Fleming becomes part of Limestone College’s inaugural football class.

Fleming, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound wide receiver/defensive back/special teams standout, will join head coach Bobby James. James was head coach at Wingate University for the previous five years.

“I’m excited about going to Limestone and being the first class. I’m glad I get a year to get comfortable,” Fleming said.

“D’Anta was a starter for four years and didn’t play a down of jayvee ball. The teachers will tell you he is one of the finest kids in school,” Young said. “He’s a good example what we want to see leaving here to go out into the world.”

Fleming and his teammates will have a redshirt year this season as the Saints the staff, roster and program. The first game will be in 2014 as members of NCAA Division II and a member of the Conference Carolinas, which does not currently sponsor football.

Fleming is the son of Angela Moore and James Fleming.
