GVSU Media • Feb 2, 2017 at 12:31 AM

Grand Valley State University head football coach Matt Mitchell announced the signing of 31 student-athletes to attend and play football at GVSU in the fall of 2017.

“Our coaches did an outstanding job of recruiting to our positional needs and finding kids that want to be a part of Grand Valley State University and our football program,” he said at his press conference Wednesday. “We always recruit the state of Michigan first, but Grand Valley State also draws the attention of kids in the surrounding states and over half of our recruiting class (17) will come from bordering states this year.”

Grand Valley State’s 2017 class consists of 31 total players from Michigan (14), Indiana (7), Ohio (6) and Illinois (4). The Lakers signed 16 offensive players, 13 defensive players and two specialists.
