After a slow few months on the recruiting front, Dino Babers, and Bowling Green picked up their 13th commitment of the 2015 class this week. Tyler Horstman, a three-star linebacker out of Vero Bech, Florida will leave the warm weather of the Sunshine State, and head up North to play his college ball for the Falcons, he announced via his Twitter page on Thursday afternoon.
Horstman, who stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs about 220 pounds, could end up playing either outside linebacker or defensive end for Bowling Green over the next few years. He picked the rebuilding Falcons over a reported scholarship list that consisted of programs such as: Army, Buffalo, Charlotte, Marshall, Middle Tennessee State, and power five conference schools Rutgers, and Wake Forest.
Tyler had a solid junior campaign as he was named third team All-Florida by the Associated Press after racking up over 100 total tackles, and nine sacks for a 10-2 Vero Beach High School squad that made it to the playoffs. Horstman has the Indians well on track to make another run towards a State title this year.
So far this season, Horstman, and the Indians are currently sitting at 7-0. Tyler has played a huge role on a solid Vero Beach defense. The senior standout has accounted for 41 total tackles and over seven sacks, which is fourth on his team.
The state of Florida has been pretty good to the Bowling Green program over the last few years. Tyler might be the first 2015 prospect from the state to give a pledge to the Falcons, but will join a long list of fellow Floridians which includes Darrell Hunter II, Clint Stephens, Ronnie Moore, Chris Gallon, Herve Coby, Will Watson, and many more.
