Troy got a commitment Monday from Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa offensive lineman Luke Lawrence.
Lawrence was offered by Troy about a month ago and pulled the trigger on Monday.
"I felt like it was the right time to commit," Lawrence said. "The football program is really good and so is the academic side. It's close to home and I felt it was good for me to go there."
Lawrence is 6-foot-3 and 295 pounds. He plays left tackle for Hillcrest, which is 10-0 in Class 6A football, but he'll play on the interior line when he gets to Troy.
He was being shown recruiting interest by Auburn, UAB, Samford, The Citadel, Murray State, Southeastern Louisiana and also had an offer from the U.S. Naval Academy - Troy's Saturday opponent.
He was recruited to Troy by defensive ends coach Randy Butler.
"I really like the coaching staff, and I really see that they know what they're doing," Lawrence said. "I felt like Troy was the best place for me to go."
