G-MAC Champs Ink 30 In 2018 Class

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Snowy conditions across Ohio and the Midwest did not stop the Ohio Dominican football team from signing 30 student-athletes to its 2018 recruiting class on Wednesday.

Coming off of a 7-3 record and G-MAC title in 2017, the Panthers brought in 13 players on offense, 14 players on defense and three "athletes" to a roster that is projected to return 17 players with starting experience from last season.

ODU is tied for the most wins of any Division II program in the state of Ohio in the last five seasons, going 43-13 (.768) in that time period, with a pair of conference championships and playoff appearances in that stretch. The Panthers are the only Division II program in the state to win at least seven games in each of the past seven seasons. ODU also has a 42-8 record (.840) against Ohio opponents since 2007.
