NCCU focuses on linemen on signing day

(STATS) - Based on North Carolina Central's recruiting class, it looks like coach Jerry Mack believes the formula to a fourth straight Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship begins with controlling the line of scrimmage.

The Eagles added 22 recruits Wednesday, including six defensive linemen and four on the offensive side.

North Carolina Central shared the MEAC title in 2014 and 2015 before claiming it outright last season when it went 9-3 overall and 8-0 in conference play. The Eagles went on to lose 10-9 to Grambling State in the Celebration Bowl and finished No. 22 in the STATS FCS Top 25.
