Falcons Land Four Football Verbals

So, a flurry of recruiting activity for the football programs.  BG has had four young men commit in the last couple of days.

Torrance Farmer is a RB from Fayetteville AR.  He's 6'1" and 210 pounds.  Not a ton of information on him, but this Arkansas blog says that he was more explosive as a RB in the spring.  Also, they gave him an additional ATH tag and say he doesn't have top end speed but passes the eye ball test. He does not have a 247 profile.

Griffin Little is a TE from Ft. Wayne.  He's 6'3" and 230.  He had a lot of offers, including Air Force, Ball State, CMU, NIU and Tulane, along with some other FCS offers, including Cornell.  He was honorable-mention all-state as a WR but tore his ACL in January, presumably playing basketball, but was able to get back to recruiting and accept a BG commit.  He was also second-team all-district.  This story in his local paper says he led his team 53 receptions for 926 yards and 10 touchdown.

Jay Burns is also from Arkansas, playing at Har-ber High School, which is right outside Fayetteville, which is where Farmer is from.  He plays at Har-ber HS and had some eye-popping success.  On October 12, he had not had an offensive touch--he had been playing CB--and then he went on a proper tear with the ball in his hands.  He had 323 yards and 4 TDs in that first game.  In his second game, he went for 350 and 2 TDs.  There were other examples. 

The fourth is Levi Gazarek from North Baltimore.  He's highly recruited and is a good example of keeping the local players home.  He has offers from Ball State, CMU, Charlotte, UConn, EMU, Fordham, Kent and Yale.  He's 6'5" and 230 pounds and is the QB at NB, but you'd expect him to play TE in college.  He is also a top-flight baseball player and his twitter announcement would seem to indicate that he's playing both sports at BG as would this article. He was also state honorable mention in basketball.

Welcome to the Falcons, gentlemen.
