John Klingerman....

There was one player who was getting some touches in the Spring Game yesterday that I did not recognize, and that was #25--John Klingerman.

He isn't listed on the roster or in the Spring prospectus and I am not familiar with hearing his name before today.

He's 5'9" and a WR in the Burbrink mode.  He had 4 grabs for 25 yards in the game.

He comes to BG with an incredibly productive career as a HS player in Bloomsburg, PA, which is over in the Eastern part of the state.  Young man set up his own website for recruiting purposes.

From that website, here are some of his records:

ALL-TIME Pennsylvania Career reception records
2nd - TD's (47)
3rd - receiving Yards (3,587)
5th - Receptions (188)
2012 PIAA class A All-State WR
ALL-TIME District 4 leader with 3,587 receiving yards & 47 receiving TD's
2012, 2011, 2010 PHAC-III first team WR and DB
2012 BHS record 61 catches for 908 yards and 13 TD's (also had 30 tackles and 3 INT's)
2011 BHS record 1,150 yards and 48 receptions and 12 TD's (also had 40 tackles)

His website says he graduated last June from HS.  I don't know anything else.  I assume he's a walk-on.  I don't know when he enrolled at BG.

Who knows what can happen?  Ryan Burbrink started as a walk-on, too.   We are deep at WR...but he did get some work today.

Anyway, if you wondered who that was, that's who that was.
