NEEDS ADDRESSED: Addressing needs is exactly what the Lions did, signing players in areas affected by the departures of veteran seniors, like quarterback Bryan Bennett and linebacker Isiah Corbett. Southeastern got a little bit of everything at every position in this class.
WHAT’S NEXT: Southeastern coach Ron Roberts said he “could sign up to four more” players. “I don’t know if we will or not,” he said. “It depends on if we get the right guy. I think we’ve addressed everything we need to, so if we find a guy that can make an immediate impact right now, I’d do it ... (if) he’s a great player.”
Lagniappe: The Lions will get an early start on spring football this year, beginning drills Feb. 24.
COACH ROBERTS SAYS: “The reputation is kids all come in here with ideas. They know what we’re about now. They’re coming here to win championships, and they’ve got to carry it on.”
