Falcon Football Verbal--Terrance Landers

BG has a football verbal, amidst all the excitement of the season, and this one looks to be a really good one.  His name is Terrance Landers and he is a 6'4" WR from Dayton Dunbar.  He is a 3-star recruit on Rivals, making him (by that measure) BG's highest-ranked commit this year...and obviously at a position where we can always use help, at least as long as we are using this scheme.  Landers had offers from Purdue (whose fans seemed to assume they had him), Pitt, Iowa, as well as Kent, Miami and Ohio in the MAC.  (These are reported offers, my guess is that this young man had even more options).

Landers was a two-sport say the least.  In fact, he did not play HS football until he was junior, and immediately began to get the attention of college scouts.

He was special mention all-state as a junior and Division IV all-district.

Welcome to the Falcons, Terrance.


The Dayton Daily News did a story on Landers that builds out his case quite a bit.

Two salient quotes:

MSU, West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Iowa and Purdue reportedly made offers to Landers, among others. A chance to play as a freshman at BG was the difference-maker.

Landers has missed two games this season but still leads the Wolverines with 30 catches for 588 yards (19.6 average) and seven touchdowns...He was the City League offensive MVP, first team All-Area and honorable mention All-Ohio as a junior in football.
