The Georgia State Panthers along with new head coach Trent Miles, received two more commitments for the 2013 season over the weekend as linebacker Kingsley Ejike and running back/linebacker Kyler Neal both committed to play for the Panthers' football team come fall of 2013.

Ejike measures in at 6'2 and 220 pounds. He played his high school football at Newton High School in Georgia. Before committing to the Panthers, Ejike had also considered offers from the Furman Paladins and the Appalachian St. Mountaineers.

When asked about his commitment by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ejike mentioned several factors that led to him selecting the Panthers:

"Georgia State is close to home, they're moving up to the Sun Belt conference, and they have a new coaching staff," Ejike said. "I feel like there's the opportunity to play early."

As for Neal, who played at East Paulding High School in Dallas, Ga., he measures in at 6'1 and 210 pounds. He played two ways for his team in high school, primarily at safety. He did play running back and could be used as a linebacker as well.
