Appalachian State signed 18 student-athletes as part of National Signing Day 2017 on Wednesday. Sixteen signees inked National Letters of Intent early Wednesday morning, joining a pair of early enrollees to complete the Mountaineers’ 2017 Signing Class.

“We’re extremely excited that these young men have joined our program and the Appalachian Family,” App State Head Coach Scott Satterfield said. “We’ve met a number of our needs with this signing class and we’re looking forward to seeing what these student-athletes can do on the field and in the classroom.”

App State signed another strong academic class, a group that collectively averaged a 3.47 GPA in high school.

“Academically, this is another very strong class,” Satterfield added. “We continue to try and identify top student-athletes that meet our high standards here at App. We want those kind of guys on our team.”
