Big Sky Conference

Montana Grizzlies National Signing Day signees


Wednesday marked National Signing Day for Division I football programs around the country. This signing day is different and without the full avalanche of National Letters of Intent from prep prospects. The NCAA added a new early signing period from December 20-22.

During the early period, Montana signed 15 players, including two mid-year transfers who are already with the program. Montana first-year head coach Bobby Hauck and his staff have added three more mid-year transfers who are enrolled for the spring semester at UM in Northern Arizona transfer safety Robby Hauck (Bobby Hauck’s son), San Diego State fullback Adam Eastwood and Arizona safety Gavin Robertson. The Griz are expecting to sign at least four more players on Wednesday as well as adding five walk-ons through the signing of admission waivers

Below is a list of the prospects who have signed with the Montana Grizzlies, including those who already sent in their NOLI before the New Year.
