Wayne State College head football coach Dan McLaughlin announced that 26 student athletes have signed national letters of intent. The 2013 recruiting class includes 26 high school recruits. 12 of the 26 signees are from Nebraska, six from Iowa, seven from Washington and one from California. 10 of the 26 recruits are on the offensive side of the ball and 16 are defensive recruits.
Offensively, WSC signed five wide receivers, three running backs, one tight end and one offensive lineman. Defensively, Wayne State brought in six defensive backs, five defensive linemen and five linebackers.
“Overall I am really pleased with this group,” remarked Coach McLaughlin “We really stressed the linebacker and wide receiver areas and felt we met our needs not only for quality but quantity. This recruiting class has some kids that can play right away, some that will give us depth and some that are a year or two away and need some maturity and work in the weight room to get ready to play.”
Wayne State finished the 2012 season with a 6-5 overall record. It was the sixth straight winning season for the Wildcats under eighth year head coach Dan McLaughlin, marking the first time in 97 years of football that Wayne State has had six straight winning seasons.
