With only two players left from the signing class that was announced in February 2010, Idaho State coach Mike Kramer has often been forced to use true freshmen.
Kramer has finally established some stability in the Big Sky program, and the 13 high school seniors he signed wont be pressed into immediate duty, he said Wednesday.
This class doesnt have to play right now, Kramer said. If you look at it from a perspective type of deal of who this class is, you will see that we are able to fit young guys into the program at a comfortable level not at an immediate need to play, got to have it perspective.
The Bengals signed five Idahoans on Wednesday, though Kramer said he plans to add two quarterbacks soon one from eastern Idaho and another from Boise.
