Football Gets JUCO Transfer

So, these are the words of Hassan Belton, who says he is coming to BG after being committed to UTEP.  He was playing at Butler Community College in Kansas.  He's a 6'0 and 210 lb LB.

It's a bit of a story.  He is from South Carolina, where he was all-state twice.  He was a 2-star recruit on 247, 3-star with Rivals.  He then went to Western Carolina, where he played for one season, making 11 tackles.  Then, for the 2016 season he transferred as a walk-on to South Carolina, where he sat out under NCAA transfer rules.

So, for 2017 he went to Butler Community College, which is in Kansas.  This is a highly ranked program.  Belton had a very productive season.  He made 67 tackles, with 3.5 sacks and 14.5 TFL, 2 forced fumbles, 2 recovered fumbles, a pick and 5 pass break ups.

Clearly, he comes at a position of need, where BG already has one JUCO LB who is a January enrollee.  In his tweet, Belton says he is enrolling in January as well, although the semester started 10 days ago. 

Welcome to the Falcons, Hassan.
