BG nets 2nd 2016 MBB Verbal

BG has picked up a 2nd verbal for '16 and it looks to be a pretty good get for the new coaching staff.  The young man is Rodrick Caldwell, a 5'10" PG from Huber Heights Wayne HS, which is down in the Dayton area.  He had reported offers from Miami, Wright State, EKU, NKU, Indiana State and Ball State.

As a Junior, Caldwell's HS team won the Division I state title, which is huge.  They had a big team including one Big 10 recruit and one A-10 recruit, but Caldwell tallied 14 points in the title game.  He was 2nd team all-conference...but that's partly because Wayne that three other players (and seniors) on the all-conference team.  He played at Dayton Stivers the year before and was an Honorable Mention All-State as a Sophomore in DIII.

BG is definitely loading up on guards, which is important.  Winning in the MAC is primarily a guard-driven enterprise and Coach Huger played PG at BG.  Speaking of which, there are a bunch of PGs on our list...sometimes I think HS teams put their best G on the point and that doesn't mean they aren't able to translate to 2s in the MAC.

Welcome to the Falcons, Rodrick.
