BG Football Adds Transfer (Potentially Significant) QB, Callaway to play baseball and football

Some relatively big news for the football program.  BG has a QB transfer coming in from Texas Tech.  The Blade reported this morning that Clayton Nicholas is in school now and will sit out next year before being eligible the following year, which would be Johnson's senior year.

Nicholas is a big get.  According to, he was a 4-star recruit coming into Lubbock.  He's 6'3" and 205 lbs.  They ranked him as the #23 QB in the nation.  Their scouting report on him is's a snippet.

Nicholas may be one of the better pure passers this class has to offer and it is shocking that he has very little interest this spring. Possesses one of the elite arms in this class and will deliver some eye-popping throws especially in the deep passing game.

Ratings are ratings.  Obviously, he isn't breaking into the lineup at Texas Tech.  Could still be a very, very good QB in the MAC.  He'll get a full year (with 2 springs) of practices before he's eligible.  He would enter BG as a JR.

The second piece of news also relates to a QB.  Based on this tweet (with no other confirmation), Cody Calloway will be a dual-sport athlete at BG.  He was recruited at QB but also had a bunch of offers to play baseball.
