National Signing Day

UTEP football announced the signing of 17 student-athletes for the 2017 season Wednesday.

“I always find it very interesting: I want to read a few stats here," head coach Sean Kugler said. "This year in the Super Bowl that’s about to be played on Sunday between Atlanta and New England, 37 percent of the Super Bowl starters that are going to line up on that field -- which is the highest level of football -- weren’t even in their top 1,000 in the recruiting classes that they participated in."

This year's rankings put UTEP last in Conference USA.
