Falcon Football Verbal, Texas Style

If you follow the recruiting sites, we're working Texas pretty hard, which makes total sense in the available time frame.  Also, there's plenty of good football players in Texas, we'll take as many as we can get.  Coach Jinks and his staff can demonstrate their mettle developing relationships around here for next year.

My curiosity was peaked when I saw this on Twitter.

Then I googled what the 832 was and found it was Houston.

The most recent offer to Houston was to Cederick CJ Pickrom...who had some telling retweets (the world we live in) and then eventually this was on his profile.

He is a decommit.  He was originally committed to Texas State, who also changed coaches this year.  In fact, this blog indicated that he was contacted after the dead period and was a solid Texas State commit with a 1/29 official visit (if you don't say OV you can't sit with the cool kids).  I believe he visited BG on 1/22 and now this is on his profile.

He's a DB...he played safety but the blog article above says he can play some corner and has a reported 4.5 and 4.6 time.  He is 6'1" and 183.  My guess at BG is that he's a CB, but what do I know.  He says he has played both zone and man.  He started playing as a FR, which is something, and he also ran track.

Rivals has him listed as a 2-star recruit with an additional offer from UTSA, where he possibly ran across Coach Eliano.

Two last things.  I assumed Reagan High School was named for Ronald Reagan, NO!  It is named for John H. Reagan, who was the Postmaster of the Confederate States of America.  Whoever it is named for, Reagan looks to be sending seven players to FBS ball next fall.
