Middle Tennessee State signs 22, including one former Vol recruit


MURFREESBORO (WATE) - Middle Tennessee State signed 22 players to play for the Blue Raiders on National Signing Day, head football coach Rick Stockstill said Wednesday.

Three players are from Tennessee. They are Alexandro Antoine, who played defensive end for Antioch High School, Jerrold Frazier, a defensive tackle from Briarcrest Christian in Memphis, and wide receiver Tracy Hampton Nashville Overton.

Another player in the 2011 Blue Raiders recruiting class was a Tennessee Vol signee last year.

Cornerback Marques Dixon was part of Derek Dooley's first recruiting class at Tennessee, but never made it to training camp after failing to qualify for academically for enrollment.

Stockstill loaded up on defensive players this year because he's losing eight defensive starters from last season.
