NORTHWESTERN FOOTBALL ADDS 52 PLAYERS ON NATIONAL SIGNING DAYALVA, Okla. – Northwestern Oklahoma State University football coach Keith Barefield along with his coaching staff have signed 52 student athletes to national letters of intent on Wednesday, February 3, the first day of the national signing period. The list consists of five college transfers and 47 incoming freshman.


“We are extremely proud of this recruiting class,” remarked Barefield. “It effectively meets both our immediate as well as long range needs. With the large number of starters returning from this past season, many of these young men will not need to be pressed into service early, but the talent of this class will allow many to push returners for playing time as soon as they arrive on campus.”


“Our primary goal was to bring in quality players that could compete immediately in the secondary, specifically at the corner and free safety positions. We also wanted to solidify our depth at the strong safety positions. 


“Other areas of concern were the offensive line and the defensive end position, both hit hard by graduation. We were successful in attracting talented athletes from both the high school and junior college ranks to shore up these areas.”


“Overall, this is a talent laden class that will leave its mark on Ranger football over the next four to five seasons.  One of best features of this class is the fact that 11 of these young men (seven high school and four junior college players) are currently enrolled for the Spring semester and will get to participate in Spring drills.”


“I would like to extend congratulations to my coaching staff for their tireless effort over the past several months. This recruiting class is a direct reflection on the job they have done. I am extremely proud of them.”
