2012 Football Verbal....

We have news of the first verbal commitment in football (that I am aware of).  Jacob Bennett is 6'6" and 275, plays OT, and goes to Lebanon HS.  (As seen first on azz.com).  Here's what his coach says about him...

“Jacob is a young man who has continued to work to improve his football skills and it’s paid off for him,” Lebanon head football coach Shawn Lamb said. “He has the ability to do some things that a lot of kids don’t because of his size and he has taken advantage of what God has given him. Bowling Green is getting a great young man who has a lot of upside. I know that’s something that they were excited about with Jacob. He has the ability to put on weight because of his frame and has the potential to be an impact player in the Mid-American Conference.”

So, the Falcons quest to upgrade to a more athletic o-line continues.  He will probably redshirt and put some weight onto that tall body.  If he does, he looks like he has the potential to be a very good player.

Welcome to the Falcons, Jacob.
