Falcon Football Verbal...

Marlon Tyree has verbally committed to BGSU for the '14 class.  Tyree is a Safety from Erie, PA, where he attends Cathedral Prep and was part of last year's Pennsylvania State champions....people, we are talking Pennsylvania here.

I have found info online (for what it is worth) that he had offers from Buffalo, Toledo, Temple and UMass.  According to this, he had 3 INTs and 3 fumble recoveries last season for Prep.  Here's a game where he had a 53 yard punt return for a TD.  He has a teammate from last year headed to MSU and one this year has committed to Old Dominion.

He is the 2nd safety in the class and the third DB, based on what is now reported.  BG's d-backfield is the anchor of the defense and this is clearly part of an effort to ensure that the quality is sustained.

Welcome to the Falcons, Marlon.

Marlon was part of a championship defense that held opponents to an average of 10.13 points/game. You can watch Marlon's highlights and look at his 2012 stas on Cathedral Prep's website
