Falcons land Indiana DE (Note: 1,000th post to this blog!).
6-3, 240 lb Kevin Alvarado
We apparently beat out Ball State for this one. (Credits to Flipper Via AZZ in tracking this one down.) He reportedly had contact from Big 10 schools, and was a second team all-state player.
Long snaps, too. Hey, looks like he could be a nice player.
E: KEVIN ALVARADO, East Chicago Central, te-rb-de-lb, 6-4, 235: A 3-year starter, Alvarado had 48 solos, 30 assists, 4 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries, returning 2 for TDs. He caught 28 passes for 449 yards (16.0) and 2 touchdowns and carried 16 times for 70 yards (4.3). Alvarado also long snaps and is being looked at by Division I colleges.New Updated Tally, as best we know.
