South Carolina State addressed a multitude of needs Wednesday, signing 12 players — eight on offense, four on defense — in its 2019 football recruiting class.
“We filled some positions that needed some work after last season,” said head coach Buddy Pough, who is entering his 18th year with the Bulldogs. “I feel confident that with the team we having coming back and the new additions from this year’s class, we have a chance to be a very good football team.”
The Bulldogs are bringing in four offensive linemen, two quarterbacks, a tight end and a wide receiver to shore up its offense.
On the other side of the ball, they’ve signed two linebackers, a defensive back and a defensive end.
The class includes three Dutch Fork standouts: tight end Jordan Springs, offensive lineman Cam Johnson and linebacker Lawson Danley.
“I think they will be some pretty good players for us in the future,” Pough said.
