Grossner adds 19 more student-athletes for 2011 season

Updated Recruiting

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University football team has added 19 more student-athletes to its 2011 recruiting class. The total now stands at 51 for the fall season, the largest incoming class in seven years.

“We have added 19 solid student-athletes to our original signing class of 32 this year,” Grossner said. “This is not only our largest class in seven years, but it also could be our most talented. Time will tell on the latter. We can’t wait to mesh this group of young men with our current roster. We only anticipate four to six senior starters next season. Reps and teaching will be at a premium at certain positions in fall camp.”
