Ferris State Football to announce 2024 recruiting class on National Signing Day this Wednesday

The Ferris State Bulldogs are slated to announce the program's next class of incoming recruits as the Bulldogs gear up for National Signing Day on Wednesday (Feb. 7).

FSU will take part in the annual nationwide festivities as NCAA Division II's winningest active head coach Tony Annese announces his staff's 13th class of incoming Bulldog recruits. Over the course of his tenure, Annese has landed the nation's top D2 recruiting class numerous times based on rankings from various sources.

The Bulldogs, who reached the NCAA Division II Playoffs for a nation-leading ninth consecutive time this past fall, expect to again land another stellar recruiting class. FSU has reached the NCAA Division II National Semifinals five times in the past seven seasons of action and ranks as the country's winningest program over the past nine full seasons in D2 Football.

Ferris State fans are encouraged to follow the Bulldogs' official football social media accounts for coverage throughout the day on Wednesday. Each National Letter-of-Intent signee will officially be announced on social media with graphics as their additions are finalized beginning early Wednesday morning. Updates will be posted during the day on facebook (@FerrisFootball), X-twitter (@FerrisFootball) and instagram (@FerrisStateFB).

Ferris State will also hold a live national signing day announcement and press conference on Wednesday at the Ewigleben Sports Complex starting at approximately 2 p.m. (ET). Local, regional and statewide media are welcome and encouraged to attend the national signing day event. The press conference will take place in the Gold Room overlooking the new Center for Athletics Performance near the new Bulldog Arena on the east end of the facility. Media are encouraged and requested to arrive early to be directed to the appropriate location.

Bulldog fans can also catch the event online as the entire class is unveiled and it will be streamed live online in high-definition via the Bulldog Sports Network on FSU's official athletics YouTube page. To view the stream, please visit this direct link - https://www.youtube.com/ferrisathletics

In addition to the announcement of this year's signing class, Coach Annese will be on hand during the press conference to provide comments about this year's National Letter-of-Intent signees as well as take questions from media members in attendance.

A complete list of Bulldog Football recruits and biographical information will be posted online at FerrisStateBulldogs.com following the event along with various highlights, photos, comments from Coach Annese and coverage throughout the day.

In addition to the announcement of this year's signing class, a video package featuring Coach Annese discussing this year's National Letter-of-Intent signees will also be part of FSU's "Signing Day" Central platform.

For complete coverage of the 2024 football signing day class, stay tuned to FerrisStateBulldogs.com. Official links will be posted as additional details on the class become available.

The Bulldogs claimed back-to-back NCAA Division II National Championships in 2021 and 2022 before concluding this past fall with an 8-3 overall record, which included a narrow setback to FCS National Runner-Up Montana. FSU is slated to open the 2024 campaign in late August with a national showdown at Pittsburg State (Kan.).
