Kennesaw State restocks the talent
By CRAIG HALEY
(STATS) - Kennesaw State's original signing class has moved on after a dominating run, so fifth-year coach Brian Bohannon and his staff have been busy restocking the talent.
Bohannon announced a 23-member signing class on Wednesday, with 15 of the recruits coming from the state of Georgia. The first 19 signees committed to the Owls in December, including three-star offensive lineman Antwann Fann from Perry, Georgia.
"We went out and we signed a heck of a class," Bohannon said. "You talk about getting bigger, about getting better, about getting faster, I think you turn the tape on and you'll see that with these young men. It's spread across the board from a position standpoint, the emphasis was on the line of scrimmage, as you can obviously see. It's a really good class; we're excited about it."
Kennesaw State compiled a 37-12 record in its first four seasons, including the last two Big South championships and consecutive runs to the FCS quarterfinals.
