The list of Longview football commitments continued to grow Monday when coach John King confirmed with that two more Lobos made their pledges.

Safety Corey Bartley and receiver Justinn Spady were the latest in the Lobos’ 2013 class to commit. Both picked Texas A&M-Commerce, according to King.

Bartley played much larger than his 5-foot-7, 155-pound frame suggests. He tied with Tarleton State-bound linebackers DeMarkus Lathan and Torean Sheppard for the team lead with 138 tackles. Bartley led Longview with seven interceptions, 21 pass breakups, and five kick blocks. He also forced one fumble, recovered one fumble, blocked one punt, and scored one defensive touchdown.

Bartley was recently named to the Football Super Team First Team at defensive back.

Spady, a 5-foot-9, 155-pounder, led Longview with 30 catches for 451 yards and four touchdowns. He helped usher in sophomore quarterback Dezmond Chumley, who was forced to become Longview’s starter early in the season after an ACL injury ended ULM-bound quarterback Bivins Caraway’s senior year in the first game of the season.

Bartley and Spady join John Tyler cornerback Traven Johnson as Texas A&M-Commerce pledges. The Longview duo gives the Lobos seven commitments in the 2013 class. There could be a couple more, too. Cornerback Nakia Brown, who recently decommitted to West Texas A&M, and defensive tackle Cornelius Williams will also likely sign Wednesday.
