Football Recruiting News: Howell in, Jordan Out

 So, two updates for the football program, as recruiting continues heading into the signing day.

We'll start with Cashius Howell, a pass rushing DE who BG was apparently very excited to get.  

Cashius is from Rockland, MO, which is in the Kansas City area.  He is 6'3" and 215, and actually played all over the field on both sides of the ball.  He is listed as a 3-star recruit.  He had reported offers from North Dakota State, Akron, Ball State, CMU, Arkansas State, Wyoming and a handful of other FCS offers. 

He was all-district as a junior.  This article here says he had 30 tackles, 13 sacks, and four deflections. 

The same article contains an interview with him.  He seems highly motivated.  Also has a 3.9 GPA.

Other things, seems to be very athletic, which is what you need from your pass rusher.  Obviously, the size is vital as well.

Welcome to the Falcons, Cashius.

On the other side of the ledger, Jacory Jordan has de-committed.  He is a dual-threat QB from Florida.  No specific destination listed but you can see what he said above.  Best of luck to him.

This leaves the class with no QBs.  Coach says that he still plans to recruit one in the class, so it's back to the drawing board there.  He says that this is what happens when you recruit at the level we do.  As mentioned before, how we are recruiting is way more important than whether we beat Akron Saturday.  You are going to need 3 stellar classes recruited in the midst of this team being as challenged as it is.  That's what we have to do.

Of course, when there are questions about the program, de-commits are a big controversy.  Remember, you won't really know anything about it for 2-3 years.  We just have to be patient.
