Falcons Net 3rd Football Verbal

Note:  This is part of the issue with covering recruiting.  I had run it based on the fact that there was an article on the St. Ignatius website and on an official St. Ignatius blog that had Willis coming to Bowling Green and listing reasons, quoting him, etc.  Now, those posts are gone and he is listed as undeclared on recruiting sites.  So, I guess this one remains open...

Dameon Willis Jr. of St. Ignatius HS has committed to be a Falcon starting with the Fall of 2014.  He plays S in HS--and that's a very successful HS program--but according to this article, he picked BG because of the close relationship between Coach Clawson and Chuck Kyle, the head coach at St. Ignatius.

I always like to see that.  When you have good relationships in the recruiting game, to me it means you do things right and treat people the right away.  It is a good indicator for long term success.

Willis Jr. very well could be a good one.  Last November, he was theoretically making a decision between Michigan and Michigan State.  Not sure what happened after that, but even so he reportedly chose BG over offers from Louisville, Toledo and Miami, OH.

Not sure, but I have a feeling this might be the kind of guy we are holding onto all season...which is fine.  We have a pretty good track record with that and it shows we are aiming high.

We are also getting earlier commits.  Last year's 3rd commit didn't come on board until the middle of June.

Welcome to the Falcons, Dameon.

He's actually the 4th commit if the other kids hold true...but Dave Clawson would know that I'm especially happy to see us back in the NE Ohio "market" again...began to wonder if we'd ever see the impact of the kids from our part of the state like we used to have.
