So, there are reports of two new Falcon verbals, both of them from the state of Michigan, and one of them from right inside the Falcon family.
Tyler Goble of Plymouth MI is a linebacker and has verballed to BG. I am assuming he is the brother of current Falcon Ronnie Goble, who is also from Plymouth and is said to have a brother. They could be cousins. Anyway, Goble looks like a really nice player. His team went to the D1 State Finals last year and was Free Press All-Area West. Check out the last line of this write up.
Team-high 82 tackles. He also had three sacks, recovered three fumbles and forced two fumbles.
Coach Mike Sawchuk: “He’s good on defense, but he’s our center on offense and makes all our line checks. He’s just a football player.”
That's the kind of player you always like to get...productive and a football player. The Freep reported as late as this spring that they were surprised he wasn't being recruited more.
The 6-1, 200-pound Goble looked to be on his way in the recruiting game after earning second-team honors at the prestigious U.S. Army Junior Combine in San Antonio earlier this year, but almost four months later, Goble still awaits offer No. 1. He does not lack colleges' attention, however. He has received word that coaches from at least 15 schools plan to visit him this spring, including Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Northwestern and Vanderbilt.
The other is James White of Detroit Crockett. He's a WR playing on a high-octane offense led by Rocket verbal Brian Blackburn at QB. Here's an early season game where he caught 9 passes for 150 yards and a TD. Crockett played into the D-2 semis before they were defeated. Even with that loss, the team was 11-2. Something called the D-zone says he is one of Michigan's top 100 players and he was second-team all-metro in the Detroit News. He also had an offer from Akron.
James, Tyler. Welcome to the Falcons.
