NCCU football focuses on DL, WR in 2013 class

Posted February 6, 2013

— North Carolina Central University head football coach Henry Frazier III identified two positions of need for the 2013 recruiting class, defensive line and wide receiver, and those needs were met during Wednesday’s college football signing day.

Frazier announced the addition of 13 recruits, including seven defensive linemen and four wide receivers, along with an offensive lineman and a tight end. The seven defensive linemen boast an average size of 6-2, 259 pounds.

“We knew we needed defensive linemen and wide receivers,” said Frazier. “That was our focus.

“We are definitely pleased with this class,” he added. “It’s a small class in numbers, but that’s just an indication of us signing two large classes in our first two classes. We were able to keep those kids in school and have a program in place where we are now able to add pieces as we see fit.”

Of the newcomers, three are from North Carolina, three from Virginia, three from South Carolina, two from Florida, and one each from Maryland and New York.

The recruiting class includes 10 high school seniors and three transfers, including two NCAA Division I-FBS transfers and one from a junior college.

NCCU kicks off the 2013 season on Aug. 31 at Duke University in the “Bull City Gridiron Classic.”
