Falcon Football Recruiting....and the beat goes on...

The verbal train keeps pulling into the station...BG has landed its 3rd verbal for the 18 class and it is another 3-star player.  This young man had a lot of offers...if you measure recruiting based on beating other schools to the guy, this is a win.

His name is Devin Ruffin and he's a MLB with FBS offers from Minnesota, Iowa State, New Mexico, NIU, Syracuse, Toledo and WMU, according to 24/7, and a half-dozen or so other FCS offers.

He's from St. Louis Lutheran North High School and is 6'1" and 210 pounds.  24/7 ranks him as the number 41 ILB in the country.   FWIW, this local article suggests he might play SS in college.

He had big numbers as a junior.   He had 50 tackles overall, 6 for loss, recovered 2 fumbles and had 4 INT.  He also played on offense, scoring 2 TDs, a crazy 6 2-PT conversions, and having 17 overall receptions.

He was also on a good team.  They were 9-3 and made it to the District Final.

Welcome to the Falcons, Devin.

I may be wrong but under the new rules these verbals can sign in December? Even as underclassmen?

You are correct, they will be able to sign early. I have the link to the press release on the rule. I'm pretty sure they still have to be seniors, though.

Yep, the new rule opens up juniors in April to go to official visits
