The Bulldogs have signed 11 players on early signing day, four of whom came from the Central Valley.

On day one as a head coach, DeBoer talked about the importance of recruiting the Central Valley saying, "No question, it starts right here in our backyard. We want to get the best players we can with the best character. We want to have an engaged program; the best way to do that is to recruit kids that will bring in the fans."
