Bowie State gets 17 on National Signing Day

From Bowie State Athletics:

 The Bowie State University football team announced its 2022 recruiting class with the addition of 17 high school seniors that signed national letters of intent Wednesday on National Signing Day.

“I believe my coaches did an outstanding job with this signing class bringing in good quality student athletes into our program,” said head coach Damon Wilson. “We were able to meet our needs in recruiting by signing 10 offensive/defensive linemen and adding more size and speed at other positions.”

Despite the pandemic, the 17-person class is an average size for the three-time Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) championship program.

“This recruiting class average GPA is over a 3.0 and their high schools has a combined senior season record of 139-39.  We understand that recruiting is the lifeline of our program.  It’s extremely important to us to recruit students that can matriculate at the university as we put a priority on recruiting leaders and winners.  I’m looking forward to this class joining the student athletes that we have in the program.”

Bowie State is coming off an historic season in 2021 after winning its third-straight CIAA championship, third consecutive CIAA Northern Division title, a 7-0 record against CIAA opponents, the programs fourth consecutive NCAA appearance and advancing to the NCAA Quarterfinal round for the first time in program history under the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) National Coach of the Year for Division II in Damon Wilson.

The national letter-of-intent signing period for football began on Wednesday, Feb. 2 and runs through Friday, Apr. 1, 2022. The recruiting list for the 2022 class can be found below:
