Eastern Michigan football signing class of 2018

Eastern Michigan officially added 12 more to its 2018 roster today, on top of its class of 16 that signed in December. Not a bad birthday gift for head coach Chris Creighton.

Of the 12 new adds, three are by way of junior college transfers, two are blue-shirted and six are walking on. EMU now has a total of nine JUCO transfers and 11 high school scholarships for this year’s class (20) and two scholarships used for next year.

The three JUCO players added on Wednesday were defensive tackle Tyrrel Eddington (Bakersfield College), and wide receivers Arthur Jackson III (American River CC) and Michael Thompson (Modesto JC). The last scholarship used on this year’s signing class went to Alex Howie, an in-state, metro-Detroit center.

The two players added as blueshirts are wide receiver Logan Giordano (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) and safety Jerodd Vines (Detroit, Mich.). These players can play right away at EMU.
