BG lands highly regard WR Commitment

BGSU has a new football verbal, and he's a WR, the 3rd one BG has added since Coach Babers arrived.  This guy has had some big-time recruiting interest, and as you can see, was also being recruited by the Rockets, at least according to that report.

He's from Florida--Dwyer High School--which is in the Palm Beach area, and the home to current Falcons Darrell Hunter and Mike Minns.  They won the class 7A state championship this year (that's Florida's second highest division).

The young man is very highly regarded.  With the usual caveat that this kind of info can be sketchy, rivals is saying he has or had offers from Florida State, West Virginia and Miami, among many others.  They list him as a 2-star recruit.  ESPN has him as a 3-star and a "78" and the 98th WR in the nation.  He's the highest rated player in our current class (according to them) just in front of WR Roger Lewis.

Clint is 5'10" and 170, but is very productive in space, which is what the Babers offense is supposed to create.

Here is a snippet from ESPN.

Is slippery as an athlete in space and is at his best when he can get the ball in the open field and make things happen.

So, a very exciting get for the Falcons.   Welcome to the Falcons, Clint.

Note:  I see here that Clint had an injury that limited him for the 2nd half of his senior year. The same article says that BG plans to use him at CB.
