"We're very excited about the four new players we've added," said Pogue. "This is a talented group that adds to an already talented recruiting class. This group will help roundout our squad for the upcoming season.

"A great deal of recognition needs to go to our assistants, Stephen Gorton and Andrew Wagstaff, in securing these four key additions to our 2012 team," added Pogue.
