Falcons Nab DE Commit

Joe Shimko III is BG's latest football commit.  He's a DE who is from Martin County, FL.  He had four D1 offers...from Akron, OU, FIU and BG.  He is 6'4" and 250, which is pretty good for a rising senior. 

They play spring football in Florida and they had a jamboree (I think where they play half-games against different opponents) and he had himself a time:

  • 2 quarters against Plantation 
  • 2 quarters against Stranahan
  • 6’4 250lbs DE/TE class of 2024
  • 2 sacks
  • 1 strip
  • 1 fumble recovery
  • 1 snap at TE (touchdown block)
  • 6 QB hurries
I'm guessing he came to BG's attention from this performance, he had an OV here and then he committed shortly afterward.

Beyond that, there is not a lot of information, which is not unusual for guys who have only played their junior year of HS.

Martin County, FL is on the Atlantic Coast of FL.  It is also the home of Jupiter Island, the richest zip code in the US, as well as  Naked Lady Ranch Airport, a housing development where you fly-in.

Welcome to the Falcons, Joseph.
