Football Updates: Biggers, Schoonover, First Verbal

 While we wait for the Akron game tonight, there are a few football updates.

Caleb Biggers is in the transfer portal.  He's the second prominent defensive player to be in the portal, with the other being Jerry Roberts.  We don't know of Roberts having found a home yet and, as noted, there are way more players than slots.  Time will tell.  He played three seasons at BG and made 19 starts.  He was 4th on the team in tackles.  If he doesn't come back, best of luck to him.

BG's assistant Jake Schoonover has left to take a job at Kansas, where he will work with Les Miles.  Schoonover was safeties and special teams for the last couple seasons.  He came with Loeffler and we will see how the vacancy gets filled.

Lastly, BG does have their first verbal for the class of 2022.  It's WR Jalen Holly of River Rouge, MI.  He had offers from Akron, Ball State, CMU, Kent and NIU.  He's 6'0" and listed as a 3-star recruit.

Note that a commenter has corrected me...Schoonover was hired here by Coach Jinks.

I don't get all this love for players who leave BG, abandoning their teammates and the school that gave them an opportunity. I don't wish them I'll but certainly don't wish them well and cheer as they walk out!
