Tigers coach Rob Ambrose announced the signings Wednesday of the following local players: Calvert Hall defensive end Stefan Janik, Old Mill linebacker Joe McCargo, Calvert Hall offensive lineman Spencer Sutton and Northwestern running back Terrance West. Largo defensive end Olatungie Coker and Damascus quarterback Connor Frazier rounded out Towson's in-state class.
