Good news for the Falcon football team, highly touted recruit Andre Givens has completed his course work and will be eligible this Fall, according to the Sentinel. Here is what they had to say:
Andre Givens has successfully completed his course work and will be eligible to play football for the Bowling Green Falcons, BG head coach Dave Clawson confirmed Thursday.
Givens was a highly-touted running back in the 2010 recruiting class after playing at Hubbard High School. He originally signed a national letter of intent with Pittsburgh in 2010. Instead of going to Pitt, Givens enrolled at Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. He then came to Bowling Green for the 2011 fall semester.
In his last two seasons at Hubbard, Givens rushed for 2,358 yards and scored 39 touchdowns.
This addition gives the Falcons depth at RB that they have not had in a long time. You have FOY Anthon Samuel, Givens, and then Jordan Hopgood who has been effective and could be meaningful even if he only ran the wildcat, which he was really good at. Even past them, Jamel Martin and John Pettigrew have shown some promise.
If the line can open some holes, Coach Clawson might finally be to the point of being able to run the ball the way he wants to...and the biggest challenge to that is strength on the line.
