History Links MSU Football Signing Day Story MANKATO, Minnesota — Minnesota State head football coach Todd Hoffner announced that 28 student-athletes will join the Maverick football team this fall.
All signings are contingent upon admission to MSU and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.
This year’s recruiting class includes 28 student-athletes from five different states, including Minnesota (11), Wisconsin (7), Iowa (5), Illinois (4) and Nebraska (1).
“As a program, we’ve definitely attracted special people, students and athletes to represent the Mavericks in the future,” Hoffner said. “The staff has worked diligently to identify, solicit and secure some of the best in the Midwest. We have signed a comprehensive class that meets our annual needs for exceptional athletes with size, speed, strength and power. Nearly half of these young men have the ability to play both ways.”
“The adage of luck and linemen never gets old. We’re thrilled for this year’s elite group of high school student-athletes who have pledged to join the herd. Offensive linemen and defenses in this group are outstanding. We look forward to Spring Football Training beginning shortly after Spring Break and culminating with our annual Spring Game and Pigskin BBQ at 1:00 p.m., April 22!”
Minnesota State finished its 2022 season with a 10-3 record as it advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Since 2008, the Mavericks have won eight NSIC regular season championships and 10 NSIC South Division championships.
