NORFOLK, Va. (NSUSpartans.com) – Norfolk State head football coach Latrell Scott announced Wednesday the addition of 10 football recruits who will join the Spartans for the 2020 season.

The group includes three Division I FBS transfers and a total of three players who will be in spring practice with the team. Wednesday’s signees include two quarterbacks, two offensive linemen, two defensive linemen, two linebackers, one receiver and one running back.

“I’m excited to have these guys join the program,” coach Scott said. “All of them fit an immediate or upcoming need. We spread our net on a national basis with this class more than normal due to specific needs we have. We also have room to sign three or four more down the line if we choose.”
