Falcon Football Verbal #6: Jerry McBride

Some good news for the Falcon football program, as they received another verbal commitment--this one from ATH/CB Jerry McBride III of Hannibal, MO.  McBride is 6'0" and 194 pounds with a 4.49 40-yard dash.  He is reported to have had offers from Ohio, North Dakota, and Western Illinois.  Notably, BG's new DC came here from WIU, so you wouldn't be surprised if there was a linkage in there somewhere.

Hustle Belt spoke to McBride, and he said BG has told him he will be a Safety when he gets to the Doyt.

He was a very productive player.  In fact, as a junior he was first-team All-Missouri and KQHA's Iowa-Missouri Defensive player of the year.  He is reported to have generated the following numbers.
57 tackles, 8 takeaways, 5 Interceptions, including a pair of pick-six interceptions during his Junior Year.
So, is that something you might be interested in?

Welcome to the Falcons, Jerry.
