The Golden Tigers are adding three defensive linemen, three linebackers, three defensive backs, three offensive linemen, three wide receivers, a quarterback and a fullback.

Ten of their signings hail from the Sunshine State. Just two signings - Opelika High School offensive lineman Julian Favors and Jeff Davis High School wide receiver Reggie Summage - come from Alabama.

Five of their signings are transferring in from community college, one is transferring from Kennesaw State.
