Commerce, Texas --  Texas A&M University-Commerce head football coach David Bailiff introduced 52 signees on National Signing Day in the first signing class for the 20th head coach in the history of Lion Football.
 
"I was really pleased with our signing class today," Bailiff said. "I've got to thank Yogi Gallegos and Tim Bleil for staying here and pushing things along while I filled out the staff. I think we hit the ground running and came up with some really great players.
 
"I think we filled a lot of spots that we feel we needed to fill. We got some massive interior defensive linemen who are athletic. We got some tall, developmental offensive linemen. At the skill positions, we got some tall, long outside receivers as well as some speed guys at the slot position. A lot of them have excellent track times. We got defensive backs who can excel in both man and zone.
 
"I think we also got a lot of good students. You've never heard a coach say they won because they had a lot of good freshmen it's about the senior class and I think we've signed a class the will be able to excel and graduate and get us where we want to go."
 
The spring practice schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
