PETRINO: "We improved our speed"

Idaho emphasized overall team speed, especially in the defensive backfield, and met their needs. Get the latest info on the newest members of Idaho's 2015 Recruiting Class via their Scout.com player pages. The group presented here are the 16 athletes that signed with Idaho Wednesday. They will join the 11 JUCO athletes that signed in December and three newcomers that gray shirted last fall.

Head coach Paul Petrino and his staff officially welcomed Idaho's 2015 Recruiting Class on Wednesday afternoon. The Vandals recruited athletes from coast-to-coast, but also put a focus on mining the Gem State and Inland Northwest for talent. Of the 16 athletes signed Wednesday, four are out of Idaho and two are from next door in Washington. Idaho landed four athletes out of the Sunshine State, five out of Cali, and one very familiar name out of Texas.
