Between two scholarship days and National Signing Day, the Baker University football team has signed 21 recruits this offseason.

“The quality is very good,” head coach Mike Grossner said. “I anticipate that this recruiting class will be as good as last year’s recruiting class, which was one of the best.”

Wide receiver Ki’anie Brooks, El Cajon, Calif., running back Akeem Curns, Kansas City, Mo., and defensive end James Guyton, Tampa, Fla., transferred to Baker after the first semester and are expected to make an immediate impact for next season.

The team has signed players from Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, California and Florida.

Grossner said Monday that he expected to sign four or five additional players this week, and he hopes to reach his goal of signing 34 players for this offseason.

"We usually have more players signed at this point, but due to the economy and tuition being just under $30,000 here, it is harder to recruit," Grossner said. "The quality of the class is still really good."<br/>
