Two running backs among Towson recruiting haul

Towson, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - FCS national runner-up Towson brought in a pair of running backs as part of a 17-member signing class on Wednesday.

The Tigers are attempting to replace Terrance West, who declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season in which he rushed for 2,509 yards and scored 42 touchdowns - both FCS single-season records.

The two new running backs were Rutgers transfer Dontea Ayres and Greg White from West Catholic High School in Philadelphia.
