CSU football coach Steve Fairchild announced his initial recruiting class Wednesday, signing 25 players.

The majority of the players came from two states, as there were 11 players signed from Colorado and eight from California. The remaining players came from Texas (3), Florida (2) and Montana.

Fairchild was pleased with the class, especially considering the fact that he only had about a month and a half to consolidate what is usually a year and a half process.

“When I was hired I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I am happy with the class,” said Fairchild. “We’ll see what happens when the time comes.”
