Jesuit (Fla.) WR Willy Suarez joins Army 2024 class

Willy Suarez was showered with congratulations as he walked out of Army coach Jeff Monken’s office.

Suarez, a slot receiver and running back from Jesuit (Fla.), committed to the Black Knights the day after their win over Holy Cross.

Waiting for Suarez were members of the coaching staff and longtime friend and Army quarterback commit Luke Knight.

“During a meeting (with Monken), he asked me if I was ready to become a Black Knight,” said Suarez, who announced his commitment on Nov. 30. “I said, ‘Yes, I would love to’ and coach Monken seemed very excited.”

Suarez played with Knight their freshman, sophomore and part of their junior seasons at Jesuit before the quarterback transferred to Wiregrass Ranch.

The Black Knights are getting a playmaker in Suarez. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound senior set a school record with 1,232 receiving yards this fall. Suarez tied Jesuit’s season-single receiving touchdown with 13. He scored 21 total touchdowns.

“I played slot receiver, outside receiver and running back against one of the toughest schedules in Florida and had great success,” Suarez said. “I am able to run the ball well. I am an excellent deep-route runner and I can also run short routes and them into big gains after the catch.”

Suarez keeps the Jesuit pipeline going to West Point. Junior linebacker Brett Gerena is a Jesuit graduate. Gerena’s father, Joe, a former Army quarterback, was Suarez’s offensive coordinator at Jesuit his freshman year.
