"This is just the start of our 2022 signing class but these three players are the cornerstone of our recruiting class and will be big pieces to continue growing our program going into the future," said Wilson. "We will continue to aggressively recruit through the rest of the signing period to add top-notch student-athletes to an already talented team."
