Football Announces 2021 Recruiting Class

MIDLAND, MICH. The Northwood University football team has announced its 2020 recruiting class. A total of 36 student-athletes will join the Timberwolves program next year.

"From top to bottom, I like what I see from this class," said Head Coach Leonard Haynes. "We focused more on skill position players, especially defensive backs," said Haynes. "I like where we are so far, but we will still be out finalizing this class."
