FAMU continues to rebuild with strong recruiting class

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Florida A&M head football coach Alex Wood attacked his first full recruiting season as the leader of the Rattlers and came away pleased.

On national signing day, FAMU announced the addition of several new Rattlers. The group in Wood’s presentation included 21 high school signees and nine JUCO transfers – all of whom Wood said will make fine additions to the rebuilding football program.

“Take a good look at them now,” Wood said Wednesday while showing off his recruits to a small crowd at the university’s College of Pharmacy, “because in the fall, you’ll have to pay to see them.”
Wood said he and his coaches focused on linemen – both offensive and defensive – for the 2016 recruiting class. The Rattlers made a splash by adding three-star guard Obinna Nwankwo to go along with four other offensive linemen and six defensive linemen.

The Rattlers struggled with depth in the trenches for most of the season.
