BG Lands Kicker Commit

So, more news in recruiting land...BG has a kicker committed.  His name is Jake Pinegar of Ankeny, IA, which is just north of Des Moines.  BG's current kicker is Jake Suder, who will be a JR when Pinegar arrives.  Suder appears to be improving after a slow start, but the internal competition will be good for everyone.

Pinegar isn't a kicker, he's a football player (and athlete) who happens to kick.  He has been an all-state defensive back and district MVP in Ankeney, which plays in the largest classification of Iowa HS football.  Also, he is an all-conference soccer player and a state champion hurdler.

Kohl's Kicking says he is the #13 ranked kicker in his class in the nation.  He has a good leg on kickoffs and is accurate, according to their report.

Given all this, I assume he's a scholarship recruit as opposed to a preferred walk-on, but time will tell.

Welcome to the Falcons, Jake.
