Recruiting Battle to Watch
We got a big battle this week as a RB from Middletown, Oh. has been garnering interest among several MAC schools. Josh Bryant has so far received offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Kent State, and Liberty. Bryant has an excellent frame for a RB at 5’10”, 192 lbs. and his Hudl film shows that he has a great blend of power, speed, and athleticism that will translate to the next level. The big thing for Bryant will be putting on some extra pounds of muscle to take the beating that college RBs take, but he certainly has the skillset to be productive in college.
Fire Recruiting Graphic of the Week
Though technically not a graphic, the work the team at Bowling Green is doing via snail mail is awesome. BG could’ve went with a basic envelope with the team logo on it, but they put in the work that both is visually striking and leaves an impression. Kudos to the Falcon team. As always, feel free to submit nominees for Graphic of the Week to @MAC__Crootin.
