“It’s a very deep class,” Gulf Coast coach Jack Wright said. “We added some really, really good players. We added some players who will push for playing time early. We’re going to be counting on some of those guys to play early. We addressed some shortages at a couple of positions, which you always have at this level. I’m really pleased with it. I think a lot of the guys we signed have huge upsides. We signed a lot of length and speed, and we’ve got some guys who can develop into different positions than they played in high school. It’ll help them play at a higher level after Gulf Coast.”
