North Carolina Central signs 22, including two former FBS players

North Carolina Central football coach Jerry Mack told HBCU Gameday earlier this week that national signing day is like Christmas.

“You know you’re gonna get some presents, ” Mack said. “sometimes you just don’t know exactly what it is.”

Following Wednesday’s National Letter of Intent day, Mack and his NCCU program now know what new toys they’ll have to play with for the next four to five years.

That class included 18 incoming freshmen and four transfers, two of which came from the FBS level. Defensive lineman Randy Anyanwu played two seasons at Buffalo while defensive tackle Chris Burton played three years at Cincinnati.
