Valpo Football Announces First Batch of 2019 Recruits

The Valparaiso University football program has announced the addition of 18 players who signed Letters of Agreement to play for Valpo as part of Wednesday’s National Signing Day.

 

Valpo continued to recruit nationwide as the players hail from eight states – Indiana, Ohio, California, Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan and Illinois.

 

The class features a strong incoming crop of defensive backs, while an offensive position of focus was running back as Valpo prepares to reload a group of tailbacks that will lose three to graduation following the 2019 season.
