Portal and Verbal Commit Updates....

So, it is Saturday morning and there is no new portal activity for BG.  While we don't like losing anyone, to date it could have been worse.  The portal is open for quite a while yet, so it's still in flux.

I love what we are doing with having players commit to stay.  Loved this....

And this.....


Meanwhile, recruiting never sleeps. BG has a new verbal, a young man known as Malik Moses, from South Gwinnett, which is in Georgia.

He's a 3-star recruit, listed at 6'2, 250. Generally, he is projected as an EDGE or DE.

247 says "2023: As a senior, totaled 31 tackles (6 TFL), 3 sacks, a QBH, a PBU and a FR in 8 games per MaxPreps. Helped South Gwinnett go 5-5 in Georgia’s highest classification."

He was once committed to Charlotte and then de-committed in November. He had offers from Arkansas State, Army, Brown, James Madison, Liberty, Navy, Richmond, Troy, UAB, UCF and Wofford--a solid portfolio of G5 offers.  Rivals adds an offer from EMU. I always like to see the service academies for academic purposes.

He was all-state as a junior, and second-team all-region this year. 

Jaylin Ballew, from Erasmus in NY, has "re-opened his recruiting."  He is a TE and was the first player committed to BG this year.  Best to Jaylin.

The state of play as I know it is in the left sidebar.  We are going heavy high school this year, while working the portal more selectively.

Below is the WMU depth chart, with a line through departing players and circles over the players who have committed to be back.  This is way less than a normal senior attrition in the old days.
