The Bulldogs added several players from the Central Valley coming off a victory over New Mexico State in the New Mexico Bowl.

Fresno State football added 16 new recruits on Wednesday as part of the early signing period. 

Eight of the future Bulldogs come from the Central Valley.

What they’re saying: “We are excited to add these 16 guys to our roster for next season with a group that brings versatility and talent on both sides of the ball,” said Head Coach Jeff Tedford in a statement. 

  • “This signing class is full of local products that our staff did a great job at keeping home to play in the Valley. We will have four mid-year additions, including two junior college transfers and two high school signees, who will be able to gain experience with us early on. Our staff recruited a good group of young men who have the qualities that it takes to be a Bulldog.”
