True Freshman Erick Hallmon has left the team, according to a story in The Blade this morning. He was in this year's class...here is what we wrote about him at the time.....italicized part is a summation of the comments from Coach Clawson. In general, this guy appeared to be a pretty good player who was recruited by other schools. According to ESPN.com, he was the highest ranked recruit we had in the class.
Erick Hallmon, LB, 6-0, 195, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (Cardinal Gibbons)
High School: Currently attends Cardinal Gibbons High School ... coached by Mike Morrill ... team captain ... four year starter ... earned second-team all-county as a senior ... recorded 65 tackles, one interception and one touchdown that same season ... played in the Broward All-Star Game and the Nike South Florida versus Dade County All-Star Game.
Patience helped as BG outwaited a Texas Tech verbal and then other teams. Could be an OLB, even a Box LB. Could play special teams early.
He is the second Floridian to leave the program this spring, the other being DB Dernard Turner.
On a Training Camp update, Kamar Jorden is in the Vikings camp, where he suffered a broken hand. This is pretty disappointing and would make it very difficult (obviously) for him to make the team year.
