MS Gulf Coast Bulldogs bring in big 2020 class

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast reloaded Wednesday on National Signing Day, bringing in 20 new players for the Bulldogs' defense of its national championship.


"It's a very solid class that filled a lot of our needs," Gulf Coast coach Jack Wright said. "I feel like at a lot of positions we couldn't do any better. We signed a lot long, big, thick bodies that are just hard to replicate."


In addition, Wright announced six other players who enrolled at Gulf Coast for the spring and will take part in spring practices.
