NEWBERRY — Newberry Head Coach Todd Knight and his staff released an initial crop of 51 signees to mark Wednesday’s National Signing Day.
Fifty of the 51 players that signed to play with Newberry are from in-state institutions. Arguably most notable among them are Newberry High School running back Amir Abrams and Chapman quarterback Colton Bailey, who were each named finalists for South Carolina’s Mr. Football award.
In all, the Wolves signed one Shrine Bowler, 14 North-South All-Stars and six Border Bowl participants, including the game’s Most Valuable Player. The signing class also includes two Region Players of the Year and the 2A Offensive Player of the Year in Chesterfield quarterback Savion Watson.
Additional members of this year’s recruiting class may come in the days ahead. All of Newberry’s signees, along with their headshots and bios, can be found at Signing Day Central. Fans can also search the hashtag #NBYFamily18 on Twitter to see graphics of each signee and send congratulatory messages to the newest Wolves.
