LINDSBORG — Bethany College football coach Paul Hubbard’s first actual full recruiting class numbers 33, with more to come.

Hubbard on Wednesday announced his first list of signees, which includes 12 transfers. Hubbard got a late start on last year’s recruiting after he was hired to replace Manny Matsakis.

"The 33 young men will be an asset to the Bethany community on and off the field. We are excited about our future,” he said.

The most heralded of the newcomers is massive defensive lineman Brandon Bennett, who is a transfer from Oregon State of the Pac 12.
