With the extended off time, it stood to reason that BG's coaches would head onto the recruiting trail, and if they did they are showing some results. Today, we learned of a new verbal to Falcon football-OLB/DE Tyler Horstman of Vero Beach, FL.
He is 6'3" and 200 pounds and had offers from Rutgers and Wake Forest (!!) according to this. A paywalled story on the web from a local paper referred to him as having a "high motor" and he was third team all-state in Florida 8A as a junior. Also, you will see here that Horstman credits BG coach (and recruiting secret weapon) Nick Monroe for long-term commitment to his recruiting.
The All-State honor is no wonder. Last year, he made 101 tackles in 9 games with 10 sacks. This year, he has 5 sacks in 4 games.
Vero Beach is undefeated this year as well.
Welcome to the Falcons, Tyler.
