NAU brings in 11 Arizona recruits among 21-player class

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Northern Arizona football program signed 11 in-state recruits among its 21-player class of 2018, which was finalized on Wednesday.

The class features 13 offensive and eight defensive newcomers.

The positional breakdown on offense is six linemen, three tight ends, two wide receivers, one quarterback and one running back.

On defense, the Lumberjacks added four safeties, two defensive tackles and two linebackers.

“The entire coaching staff is thrilled with the high quality student-athletes we have added to the program as part of this signing class,” NAU head coach Jerome Souers said.  “We signed a large group of offensive linemen, which will help us continue to play solid in the trenches as well as provide depth at the position.  We also added some talented skill players offensively in addition to balancing out the defense with a quality group of athletes that will help to continue the success on that side of the ball that we enjoyed last season.”

The 21-player class includes four players who signed during the early signing period in November. Thirteen of the recruits are from high school, eight are junior college transfers. In addition to the 11 players from Arizona, NAU added seven players from Florida and one each from Utah, Florida and Alaska.
