A look at Mercer head coach Bobby Lamb’s football team’s 2017 signing class, player-by-player. Mercer signed 19 players in this year’s class.
The Bears signed six offensive linemen, four defensive backs, three running backs, three wide receivers, one quarterback, one linebacker and one place-kicker/punter. Mercer signed 10 high school players from Georgia, two each from Alabama, Florida and Tennessee, along with three transfers.
Here’s a look at freshman Rob Lake
Position: Wide receiver.
Hometown: Ocala, Florida.
High school: Vanguard.
Lamb says: “Rob is a very explosive young man that also played on the basketball team at Vanguard. He is a guy that really compares to Chandler Curtis with great speed. He is a big-time receiver that will fit in really well with our offense.”
