So, BG has picked up its 7th and 8th verbals for the '17 class. There was a lot of twitter-fiving this morning about a Florida verbal, but that has yet to be revealed. Both of these young men are WRs, making 3 WRs in a class that currently consists of 6 offensive players.
The first is Quintin Morris. He's from Richmond, TX, SW of Houston. Quintin is a 3-star recruit on 24/7, and had offers from Abilene Christian, Army, Citadel, Navy and New Mexico. Obviously, with 2 military academy offers, academics have to be strong. He's 6'2" and 200 pounds, which is a pretty good combination for the MAC. He was 2nd-team all-district as a junior. He plays at George Ranch HS, and they won their first state championship last year, beating their opponent 56-0. Quintin caught one pass in the game for a 22 yd TD...they threw only 6 in the whole game.
The second is Matthew Wilcox. He's also a 3-star player...from Wayne HS, which is in Huber Heights, OH, which is the Dayton region. He is ranked as the #197 WR in the country and the #57 player in Ohio.
He had a lot of MAC offers...Ball State, CMU, EMU, Kent, Ohio, Toledo and WMU....in addition to UC, EKU and he made unofficial visits to Indiana and Penn State. He's 5'10 and 185 and would appear (therefore) to be a slot guy.
As a junior, he ran the ball 37 times for 269 and 6 TDs (all of them in the red zone) and had 58 catches for 753 yards and 9 TDs, He also had a notable sophomore season and was first-team all-conference as a freshman.
Wayne finished #2 in the state last year, and in the title game Wilcox and 3 TDs on 11 touches.
Quintin, Matthew....welcome to the Falcons.
