BG's Second Football Verbal---Updated

So, BG has a second verbal and they are both on the d-line. This one is Nico Lautanen, a 6'4", 265 DT from Mentor, OH.  According to this story, (which lists him at 270) he had offers from most of the MAC schools.  Here is what his HS Coach (an 85 BG Grad) said...

“He’s one of the top defensive tackles in the state of Ohio,” said Mentor coach Steve Trivisonno of Lautanen. “He’ll be 290 by the time he gets to college, and he’ll be a force. He was impressive as a junior, as good as anybody else on the field.

Update:  Nico's local paper had a story on the commitment.  More info...he had 75 tackles as a junior.  Mentor played in the state title game.  Here's another coachquote:
“He’s so smooth,” Trivisonno said of Lautanen. “He’ll end up being a 3-technique kid, down inside as a tackle. He uses his hand well, plays hard and is very difficult to block.
Finally, when asked about what he would do if bigger schools came calling...
“Coach (Trivisonno) doesn’t like decommitting, and neither do I,” Lautanen said. “I’m set on BG.”
Welcome to the Falcons, Nico.
