Football Gets Verbal From Massillon

BG has a verbal for the class of '24 from Massillon, OH, a veritable HS football mecca.  This has been a fruitful area for the Falcons.  That includes 2-time MAC Most Valuable Player Erik White (and BG HOFer) and the Studer brothers, including the late Steve Studer, who was an honorable mention All-American and his brother Joe.  There is a Joe Studer and a Dan Studer on the coaching staff there today. Also, Jon Mazur (a Rimington nominee) and Chip Robinson (both BG OL) are coaches as well. Finally, current Falcons Harold Fannin and Cynceir McNeil are Massillon Washington grads.

This young man is Dorian Pringle from Washington High School.  He's a 6'0" 215 lb LB/RB who projects to LB.  

Northeast Inland District Division II Co-Defensive Player of the Year and was first-team All-Ohio.

He's clearly a playmaker.  The Canton Repository says:

Pringle dominated the line of scrimmage simply by shooting gaps on blitzes last season. At 5-foot-11, 225 pounds, Pringle led the Tigers with 69.5 total tackles and 21.5 tackles for loss. He was second on the team with 5.5 sacks and added three forced fumbles and two pass breakups. Pringle played both ways and scored six rushing touchdowns as a power back, playing behind record-setting running back Willrell Hartson.

According to 247, he had offers from Duquesne, EMU, Montana State and Temple. The Canton Repository adds Kent and Fordham.  He visited Wisconsin.

Welcome to the Falcons, Dorian.
