The WKU football program announced 10 more signees to its recruiting class of 2018 on Wednesday.

The 2018 WKU signing class is the highest ranked signing class in WKU history, according to the 247Sports’ national team rankings.

The following players signed with WKU on Wednesday:

RB Garland LaFrance – New Orleans, La.
WR Anthony Spurlock – New Orleans, La.
OL Mason Brooks – Cedar Park, Tx.

Two other signees, Shannon Bishop (Louisville, Ky.) and Nazir Sy (Norcross, Ga.), became public after signing in December.
