News from the football roster

So, it is (more or less) July 1 and the student-athletes are returning to campus to start the summer program.  With that, BGSU has updated the football rosters with number changes, position changes and a couple departures and a couple additions.

Let's start with the additions...

First, Will Watson is back. He's a CB who will be a senior.  He played in 35 games over his first 3 seasons, making 40 tackles with 4 defends and a FR returned for a TD.  He was involved in the May 29, 2015 incident with Bryan Thomas and Robbie Rhodes and suspended indefinitely.  He did not play last year, but is now listed on the roster.  With Stephens out, he could provide some badly needed experience and depth.

BG has added Vanel Dossus, a JUCO transfer WR from Mt. San Jacinto in CA.  He was productive at that level, with 53 grabs in 6 games, for 841 yards and 6 TDs.  That's 15.9 yards per catch, which is really good.  As I documented earlier this week, BG has had huge losses at WR and a guy like this could at least get into the mix.

BG also added Romeo Masuku, a DB transfer from Rhode Island.  He's transferring from an FCS school and should have to sit a year, but apparently there is something about that which hasn't been decided.  He played 11 games last year on defense with 5 I wouldn't say he was seeing a ton of snaps out there.  If you are curious, Rhode Island had the 80th ranked defense.

Now, a couple names that are not on the roster...

You know about Robbie Rhodes...

Three defensive players...DB Bobo JonesLB Harrison Roberts and DL Tyler Horstman, all members of the 2015 class from Coach Babers.  None played in a game.

Also gone is Sam Crosa, a K from Dublin, OH.  He red-shirted last year after being a walk-on and is no longer listed.  Obviously, BG has a hole to fill at Kicker.  The roster currently lists Nick Fields, Jake Suder and Blake Levin at K.
