BG has its 2nd Football verbal. It is Matt Johnson of Bishop McDevitt HS in McDevitt, PA. From this article, it seems like he had some higher hopes, but only had offers from BG and Temple, and decided to take the sure thing rather than be left with nothing if he waited.
It will be interesting to track how the QB recruiting issue goes. Coach Clawson has said that we will recruit a QB every year to make sure we don't end up in the situation we are in this year, where we essentially had no experienced players to replace Tyler Sheehan.
At 6'0" 190, Johnson has some eye-popping numbers from his sophomore and junior seasons.
In two years as a starter Johnson has thrown for 4,940 yards and 59 touchdowns. He’s completed 65 percent of his passes and thrown just 18 interceptions in 437 attempts. His career NCAA quarterback rating is a stunning 196.49.
So, welcome to BG, Matt Johnson.
