Norfolk State head football coach Pete Adrian announced Wednesday the addition of 15 recruits who will join the Spartans in 2012.
Included among the 15 are four players who are currently enrolled at NSU for the spring 2011 semester. Three of the four originally signed with Division I FBS programs.
"We knew we had to add some quality depth on defense since we lost a number of good players there and since we play so many in our rotation,” Adrian said. "I definitely think we accomplished that with the early enrollees.”
Of the 11 players who signed national letters of intent Wednesday, three are junior college transfers and eight are high school recruits. The three JC players include two quarterbacks and one running back, while the high school class consists of three offensive linemen, two defensive backs, one fullback, one tight end and one defensive lineman.
"Overall, we feel that we were able to address our key needs,” Adrian said. "We feel that each of these players will be a great fit for our program, and we look forward to them wearing the green and gold.” (Click here for more information)
