BG Football Lands Highly Ranked Verbal

I suspect things were good today at the Sebo Center--and where ever else our coaches are today--as the Falcons landed their top-rated recruit of the 2020 Class.

His name is Deshawn Jones of Akron East HS.  There has been a lot of chatter among recruiting experts (as in guys who do this for a living) who said this is a  very big get for BG.  What they mention right away is speed.  He's considered one of the fastest dbacks in the midwest.  247 has him as the #31 player in the state and the #69 DB in the country.

If that sounds OK to you.

Here is the deal.  He was once committed to UC.  When he made that commitment, he had 20 offers and six of those being P5 offers...including Michigan and Penn State.  Then come October of this year, UC told him that they couldn't sign him anymore.  So, he put himself back out there, and the recruiting began again.

Here, BG's very effective recruiting process kicked in...BG had stayed in touch with Jones--who they offered in December of last year, when Loeffler was new on the job, according to The Blade.  When he was available again, BG was able to go to work.

In total, 247 says Jones had offers from EMU, UC, Akron, CMU, Kent, Indiana, Liberty, UMass, Michigan, Minnesota, OU, Penn State, Rutgers, Toledo and WMU.

He was third-team All-Ohio.

Welcome to the Falcons, Deshawn.
