Michigan Tech head football coach Tom Kearly today announced the addition of 24 student-athletes to the Huskies’ roster for the 2012 season.
Tech’s incoming class includes 10 offensive players and 14 defensive players. Of the 24 student-athletes, 17 are from Michigan including three from the Upper Peninsula. Six players hail from Wisconsin and one is from California.
“This was our best year for having a high percentage of our offers accepted,” said Kearly, who begins his seventh season as the Huskies’ head coach. “Our coaching staff did an excellent job of identifying prospective student-athletes. Our emphasis this year was to find skill position players on both sides of the ball, and I feel like we did that with six defensive backs and four wide receivers.
“As always, academics are a priority for incoming student-athletes. We’ve got a good group of students in this class including three valedictorians.”
Michigan Tech posted a 7-4 record in 2011, finishing tied for third in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Listed below are the 24 student-athletes that will attend Michigan Tech and play football this fall. A brief biography on each is also available below.
Notes: The current team has been conditioning and lifting weights since returning from the semester break. Spring practices for Michigan Tech will begin March 22, with the annual spring game to be played at Sherman Field on April 14.
