TROY -- Troy is hopeful that its two Montgomery-area signees can contribute quickly.

Prattville receiver Corey Shelton and Tallassee running back Mike Smith were among the 25 signees announced by the Trojans on Wednesday.

"We think both of those guys are really good football players," new Troy offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield said.

Shelton could have a faster path to the field with a potential impact as a kick returner. The Trojans have star receiver/returner Jerrel Jernigan returning this fall for his senior season, and Shelton could be next in line.

"That's why we wanted to get him," Edenfield said. "He's super-fast. As soon as we get him on the field, it will be good for us and for him."
