Josh Lynn confident UNK Football signing class will thrive
UNK football went out and recruited locally well – tying for the most freshman from Kearney in the last six years with four newbies, 16–in–staters total.
They also spread out into Illinois, Missouri, and Colorado to fill the recruiting class of more than 40 kids.
The common thread throughout was pretty noticeable.
"If there's one word we can summarize this class with, it's length," Lynn said. "You look at the young men we signed, there's very few young men under six foot, and that's all positions," Lynn continued. "From wide receivers to defensive secondary to offensive linemen."
"I mean everybody is sitting there 6'0 and above, to do that, you need some length on the football team , so it's definitely been the plus of this recruiting class."
Lynn says this year's batch of incoming kids was helped because he and his staff were able to build relationships throughout the year rather than only having a month before signing day like his first year.
