Football, 2012-02-06

Walsh University Head Football Coach Jim Dennison has announced his first NCAA ll recruiting class.  The class features four Stark County players and seven Summit County players.  Walsh is currently in Candidacy Year Two for NCAA ll membership, and next year will play a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) schedule.

“I am excited about our first NCAA ll recruiting class,” exclaimed Walsh University Head Football Coach Jim Dennison.  “Although it is smaller than usual, we filled our needs at every position.  This class will fit in well with our 75 returners.  With the addition of more Division II schools in Ohio, recruiting has become much more competitive.  We are very happy with the 2012 class.”
