Two new Football Verbals....

BG has two new football verbals reported, bringing the total to 10 for the year.  This is well ahead of last year's pace.  BG did not pick up its 10th verbal last year until August 4, based on what we see on the internet.  Last year, BG was recruiting for what was expected to be a small class (and ended up being big-ish) and now is recruiting for what is going to need to be a big class.

The first player is Andrew Podbielski, who is a TE from Beaver Falls, PA.  Good football country there.  In fact, Beaver Falls is the home of a guy named Joe Namath.  He's 6'5" and 230, which is really nice size for a TE.  I'm guessing he's somebody we are looking to provide a physical presence on blocking downs.  As a junior, he made 14 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns. Here's the good part--he also made 50 tackles playing on the defensive line.

The second player is a local....LB Griff Saunders of St. Francis HS in Toledo.  He's listed at 6'3" and 215.  I'm not finding a ton of other information about him except that he seemed to pick up some interest after a camp this year.  Perhaps we will see more as time goes on...

In the meantime, welcome to the Falcons Andrew and Griff.
