"BG is the place for me." -Caylon May (@CaylonMay) on his commitment to Bowling Green. https://t.co/uXfV5ZQkAk— Hustle Belt 'Crootin (@MAC_Crootin) January 24, 2017
Credit here to Hustle Belt, where I saw this first. BG has another verbal on the defensive side of the ball. This young man is a 3-star recruit and very highly regarded. His name is Caylon May and he is a 6'1 1/2", 305 pound D-tackle from Illinois. Scout lists him as one of the top 5 DTackles in Illinois and #75 in the country. This report has him as the #34 recruit in Chicagoland.
According to what he told Hustle Belt, when he made his visit to BG, he decided it was "the place for me."
He had reported offers from CMU, WMU, Ball State, Buffalo, Illinois State, Miami, and Colorado State. Even more importantly, he's been heavily recruited since the year after his junior season.
The Hustle Belt article mentions that BG is currently #2 in the recruiting ratings and could go to #1 if UT loses Michael Warren. You all know how I feel about recruiting ratings. At the same time, clearly we are getting guys that other schools want. You also know my concerns about this staff, but on the recruiting front they do appear to be showing their mettle.
Stand by. Week from tomorrow!!!
Welcome to the Falcons, Caylon.
