The Early Signing Period in December yielded 24 signees, including 14 junior college athletes. The incoming junior college athletes give the Monarchs an influx of experienced talent.
National Signing Day was a time for Old Dominion to polish of the remainder of their class with high school talent.
The Monarchs added:
Jorell Baum (2019 DE 6-3 220) Northeastern High School, Elizabeth City, NC
Javon Harvey (2019 WR/DB 5-11 180) Lake Taylor High School, Norfolk, VA
Joshua Burdsall (2019 LB 6-0 200) Forest Park High School, Woodbridge, VA
Terry Jones (2019 S 6-1 180) Mergenthaler Vo Tech, Baltimore, MD
“We are excited to add these four student-athletes to our current list of outstanding recruits for the 2019 team,” ODU Football head coach Bobby Wilder said. “Our staff will continue to recruit for our current roster throughout the spring.”
Not only is the 2019 signing class diverse from the standpoint of Juco talent and high school grads, it’s also spread geographically. There are recruits from California, Texas, Florida and Canada, as well as regional athletes that will draw more fans to the program.
Old Dominion opens their 2019 season in a refurbished and expanded S.B. Ballard Stadium on August 31 with a home game against Norfolk State.
