LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Bucknell head football coach Joe Susan has announced the addition of four student-athletes to the team's 2017 recruiting class. Nineteen newcomers were announced on National Signing Day in February, so the team's recruiting class now stands at 23.
The four additions to the class are offensive lineman Alex Bolinger, wide receivers John McGuire and David McWilliams, and safety Conner Romango.
"We are excited about the addition of this group of four talented student-athletes to our team," said Susan. "With their commitments we have completed a very talented class. The addition of these 23 first-year students to our team in early August will certainly enhance our program. As always, we feel that they will benefit from their experience at Bucknell. We work to make sure they will benefit Bucknell by their presence at this special place."
