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 Thomas McBride:
Position: Offensive line.
High school: FPD.
Lamb says: “Thomas is a local product from right here in Macon. He has a great understanding of the game to go along with a strong motor.”
