Football Verbal....

The Falcons have another verbal commitment, this one another JUCO player named Joshua Pettus.  He is from the Detroit area originally and was playing for the College of DuPage in Illinois.  JUCO players can be hard to find info about.  ESPN reports that CMU and Houston offered him, and he was first-team all-conference.

And for good reason.  He was the team's second leading tackler with 70, had 5 TFL and 1 sack.  More impressively, he had 5 INT in an 8 game season, and 5 Pass Breakups to go with it.  His team was 4-2 in conference and 7-2 overall.

He seems to have played Safety up until now, but projects to a corner in D1.

That is our 3rd reported JUCO verbal, which surprises me, especially at CB, where I thought we had some pretty good players. Obviously, he looks like a good player who can contribute.

Welcome to the Falcons, Joshua.
