Two new football verbals.

The Falcons have lined up two more verbals for the football team.

The first is Alex Thomas, WR, of Hollywood FL. He attends Chaminade-Madonna Prep School and the Sun Sentinel says he is the 9th best WR in the county and the 48th best player overall. I can't find any season stats from the end of last year, but at one point he was leading the team with 8 TDs and 31 receptions.  He was second-team all-Broward last year, as a junior.

He had some impressive offers.  Numerous sources indicate that he had actual offers from Akron, Appalachian State, Cincinnati, Kent State, Marshall, Minnesota, Utah State and Western Kentucky.

If we truly beat out Minnesota and UC, that's a good sign.  Time will tell, but this is a great get for us and one we will have to watch closely.

The other is Jared Coker, OL, of Ashburn VA.  Lineman are always tough to find information on...he's good sized at 6'3" and 290 lbs.  He had offers from Charlotte, Kent, UMass and Old Dominion.  He was first team all-district as a junior at guard.  No idea where we might be projecting him, but he also looks like he can be a good one for us.

UPDATE:  Here's a local story about Coker...he was actually all-state.

That leaves BG with six verbals.
