Big news for the Falcon faithful, JD Tisdale of Swartz Creek, MI has committed to BG (during a visit on Saturday).
Tisdale has been the subject of a strong recruiting battle, particularly by WMU among 5 other offers. He was set to announce his decision a few weeks ago but postponed it, reportedly due to Big 10 interest. He's been a swingman, but is reportedly looking to play PG for his senior year in HS. I don't have any idea where he might play at BG, but an athletic 6'5" guy is the kind of length we are looking to get.
This is from the mlive.com story on his commitment.
He averaged 13 points, nine rebounds, and five assists per game while making The Flint Journal’s All-Area Second Team in the 2011-12 season. This year the 6-foot-5 swingman would like to transition to the point guard spot under Dragons new head coach Scottie Wright.
Welcome to the Falcons, JD. I know people are anxious about our men's basketball program, but winning a recruiting battle like this does help to give us a little confidence. Nothing is sure until they play, but it looks to me like this guy will be a good MAC player.
