Howard University Inks 23 on National Signing Day

WASHINGTON, D.C -- The Howard University Football team announces 23 athletes who signed their National Letter of Intent, making their decision to become a Bison official.

"It's a class of 23," stated Head Coach Mike London. "We're excited that the class represents kids from 14 different states, eight from the DMV area. We tried to address the needs on offense and defense and position needs with four wide receivers, three really good running backs, a tight end, and an inside interior player."

He continued, "On defense we have athletes in , two safeties and and two corners. We have to have guys that can cover. We have to have pass rushers, and that is important to us along with the two linebackers that we signed. 

Also this class includes a punt returner and and kick returner. If you have a chance to go to the links and see their huddles, and accomplishments, you'll see some dynamic and athletic guys. We are really excited about the class, and we will also be adding Caylin Newton, we are excited about that addition as well." 

He concluded, "For what it's worth, we have the Number 1 recruiting class in the MEAC."
