Big Rapids, Mich. - Due to the weather, Ferris State University has delayed the announcement of its 2011 recruiting class until Thursday (Feb. 3) afternoon.

An official release along with biographical information on FSU's incoming recruiting class will be available on Thursday in a formal announcement at www.ferrisstatebulldogs.com.

Additionally, the football signing day press conference previously scheduled for Wednesday has been rescheduled for this Friday (Feb. 4) afternoon at 2 p.m. (ET) on the third floor of the Wheeler Pavilion located at FSU's Top Taggart Field.

The changes were necessary due to the closing of both the FSU campus and many of the schools around the state.

Head coach Jeff Pierce will be available on Friday to provide comments about this year's signees as well as take questions from media members in attendance. Local, regional and statewide media are welcome and encouraged to attend the event.

He can also be contacted by email at bentleyr@ferris.edu.

For media best accomodation, please notify the Ferris Athletics Communications staff if you're planning to attend.

The complete list of Bulldog Football recruits and brief biographical information will be posted online at www.ferrisstatebulldogs.com once the class has officially been announced with video content and more available after Friday's press conference.
