2016 Bowling Green Football Recruiting: Andrew Armstrong and Jerry Judd Commit to Falcons

The Falcons land a pair of future linebackers.

It's been a busy 12 hours for the Bowling Green coaching staff. Starting to catch fire on the recruiting trail, the Falcons are currently sitting at eight verbal commitments after adding a pair of under-the-radar class of 2016 linebackers.

On Monday evening Youngstown Cardinal Mooney standout Andrew Armstrong committed to the Falcons over chances to suit up on the college level at Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, and Robert Morris.

"I really liked the staff. All the coaches are very well spoken, professional, and seemed to really want me to be part of their program." The 6'2, 215-pound prospect stated to Hustle Belt.

The facilities, educational structure, and having the chance to play close to his family were just a few of the other reasons that made his decision to attend Bowling Green an easy one.

Playing tight end on offense, and strong safety on defense last season for Mooney, Armstrong seemed to always be around the ball. His five interceptions and two touchdowns were just half the reason why he was selected First-Team All Northeast Ohio.

Bowling Green's recruiting momentum continued on Tuesday morning when the Falcons picked up a pledge from Jerry Judd of Streetsboro.

"I called Coach (Tom) Kaufman at 9:00 this morning and told him I wanted to be a Falcon. He was very excited to have me on board." Said, Judd.

A lot like Armstrong, the Falcons staff played a huge role in Judd's recruitment.

"I chose Bowling Green because I love their coaches and they have a great program and I want to be a part of it."

Last season as a junior, the 6'1, 190-pound Judd accounted for 40 total tackles, and three sacks, while racking up nearly 3,000 total yards, and well over 30 touchdowns from his quarterback spot.

Even though Bowling Green was his only scholarship offer, Judd was receiving quite a bit of interest from programs such as Toledo, Ohio, Navy, Air Force, Youngstown State, and James Madison to name a few.
