Michael Love Commits to BG

BG has another commit and this one is a player rated with 3-stars who had other D1 options.  His name is Michael Love, and he's a Chicago-area RB who 24/7 projects as a WR in the MAC.  I know that ratings are suspect, but you do like to see your program picking up guys who had been offered by other FBS programs.  In this case, the young man was offered by NIU, WKU and Western Illinois.

His brother plays at Notre Dame and in this article Michael is described as sneaky fast.  He played on a good HS team, which lost in the final in DeKalb for the Illinois title in 6A, the third-largest classification in that state.  Love finished the big game with 6 catches for 121 yards and a score.

Overall, for his junior season he had 12 touchdowns.

Overall, this is the 3rd straight player BG has signed who had FBS options and was ranked.  It should help calm the nerves about the recruiting mojo at BG for the time being.

Welcome to the Falcons, Michael.

Update:  Here's an excellent local article on Michael.  His brother was a second-team All-American, and they seem very high on him at Nazareth.
