Charlotte, N.C. – Charlotte 49ers head football coach Brad Lambert has announced the program’s sixth recruiting class. The 49ers announced the signing of 18 players, today, who join four mid-December signees. Now in the program’s fifth year, Charlotte will be competing for the third time at the FBS level as a member of Conference USA. In 2016, the 49ers improved to 4-8 and recorded their first three Conference USA victories on its way to a 3-5 league record.
The full 22-member signee class is the third-largest in the program’s short history and helps make up for the 49ers first recruiting class, which was the biggest in school history and graduated this past year. The 2017 class includes four in-state players from North Carolina and 11 from the North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia/D.C. region. Charlotte signed six players from Florida, the most of any state and added seven junior college transfers.
The class includes five three-star recruits: WR Cameron Bent (247Sports), RB Kameron Duncan (Rivals, 247Sports), OL D’Mitri Emmanuel (Rivals, 247Sports), WR Victor Tucker (Scout.com) and DL Chrishawn Wilson (Rivals, 247Sports, Scout.com).
Charlotte signed six offensive linemen (including three junior college linemen), five linebackers, three wide receivers, three tight ends, two defensive linemen, and a running back, quarterback and defensive back.
