New Football Verbal

The Falcons picked up their 7th verbal commitment today. DE Zach Colvin picked BG over a wide selection of D1 programs after making an unofficial visit on Saturday. Think that big, loud crowd had a role in that?

According to the Chicago Tribune, he had offers from  Air Force, Ball State, Central Michigan, Memphis, Northern Illinois and Wyoming and picked BG because of the hope of early playing time and that he would play D-end, which he feels is his natural position.  He had an offer from Illinois (which still has a Big 10 program, you might be surprised to know) at one point, but it was withdrawn.

According to ESPN, he is a three star recruit and is our second to date.  On the 1-100 scale, he is our highest ranked player.

Coach has said we have 9 verbals, which means some have not been reported publicly, which is not unusual at the MAC level.  John Wager of The Blade has also promised a recruiting update on his Falcon Fodder Blog, which is on the left sidebar.
