KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - University of Nebraska-Kearney football signed 25 newcomers as a part of its National Signing Day haul Wednesday, the first official recruiting class under coach Ryan Held.

Thirteen of those joining the program are from Nebraska.

“Yesterday was very stress-free for us,” Held told Local4 Thursday. “We felt really good about everybody signing. I want Nebraska kids here and region kids, so I think we did a really good job year one. We want to do an even better job next year after we’ve been here a year. That’s a big priority for us. We’ll continue to foster those relationships.”
