BG has a new football verbal. It is Dirion Hutchins, a DE from Francis Howell HS in St. Charles, MO. He appears to be have played strong-side at Howell, but according to Yahoo projects to a weak-side DE in college. We shall see. He doesn't have any starts from them, but that isn't something I tend to get too worked up about here. You need players who can fit a system and you need a bunch of them. Talk to me in five years.
According to Yahoo, he's 6'2" and 215 pounds. (Could also translate to LB at BG). Anyway, he had one offer he had only one other FBS offer--from Ball State--to go with a number of FCS offers.
Yahoo says he had a 5-something 40 yard dash, which is a little surprising given that you can see he ran a 25.4 200m in HS track. He had a 9'5" standing broad jump, which seems to be good based on this article.
He also wrestled. On this blog, we like guys who play multiple sports.
We also like productivity. As a JR, Hutchins played on a REALLY good team. They were 11-1 with a 513-116 score differential. Hutchins was 13th in his conference in tackles (with 61) and 4th in sacks with 5.
Welcome to the Falcons, Dirion.
