HICKORY – Lenoir-Rhyne University has six mid-year signees for its 2019 football recruiting class, which includes tight end Josh Ramseur of Newton-Conover High transferring in from Elon University.
Bears head coach Drew Cronic announced four new players from Georgia and another from Florida. The class includes two defensive backs, a true freshman, two red-shirt freshmen, two juniors and Ramseur.
Four signees are offensive players with a pair of defensive backs added. The class includes one true freshman, a pair of redshirt freshmen, two juniors and a graduate transfer.
“I think we met some needs here at mid-year,” Cronic said in an LRU press release. “We added a couple defensive backs that should help us and a few quarterbacks since our depth was really tested last year.
“We also added at the offensive line and tight end positions. We needed depth at all these spots and were able to add quality guys and quality athletes to help us have a great spring.
“With the success we had this year, people want to play here and we are excited about that.”
