The MAC Champion Falcons pick up a huge recruit as the Dino Babers era begins.

Big news today for Bowling Green football as Roger Lewis has committed to the school as his destination to play college football. Lewis announced his joining of the Falcons' 2014 class on his personal Twitter account Monday afternoon. 247sports.com is confirming the news.

The former Ohio Bobcats commit is coming off a year where he was found not guilty of rape charges in February, and then accepted three years of probation to avoid a re-trial on a second count that found the jury deadlocked. He committed to the 'Cats in late January of 2012 before being brought up on charges of rape.

A former big-time recruit before his legal issues, Lewis held offers from 14 schools including Ohio State, West Virginia and Arizona at the time of his initial arrest. All told Lewis has offers from 17 schools according to Rivals.com.

After Lewis' final punishment was handed down his recruiting opened back up. He took a late and surprise visit to Bowling Green back in December which garnered a lot of attention on his Twitter account. His commitment comes as Dino Babers steps in as head coach, replacing Dave Clawson who departed to Wake Forest after the MAC Championship game. With Babers' high-tempo Baylor-like offense, being able to place Lewis on the field even as a freshman should certainly provide quarterback Matt Johnson with another play-making weapon.

Lewis, who is still considered a 4-star recruit by Scout andRivals, and a 3-star according to ESPN, 247sports has downgraded him to a 2-star recruit in the time since 2012. He joins a Falcons' class that currently features 15 commitments and is ranked as eighth in the MAC by 247sports.com.
