ELON, N.C. – To most people, February 5th is just another day. However, in the college football world it marked National Signing Day.
New Elon football head coach Rich Skrosky announced the new members of the phoenix football program that will join the team in fall.
Members of the community and fans joined Skrosky and his staff at the Best Western Plus where they explained each recruit and watched their highlights.
The recruiting class includes 13 players, two of which are transfers. For his first recruiting class at Elon and the time constraints he faced with recruiting, Skrosky is very pleased with the class he assembled.
“These kids we recruited, they know what the message is from day one, they know what the expectation is from day one, “ stated Skrosky. I feel really good about the 13 guys we signed today.”
The 2014 season will be Elon’s inaugural season as part of the Colonial Athletic Conference. Elon will open up its season on August 30th against Duke.
