Recently hired head coach Dino Babers and the Bowling Green football program received their first commitment of the 2015 recruiting class last week when Plainfield North (IL) defensive lineman Jack Kramer picked the Falcons, just days after Babers and company offered him a full ride scholarship.
"Bowling Green was my first offer, but I was also looking at Western Michigan, Illinois, Northern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, Miami (OH), and North Dakota State University. Bowling Green's football program and academics were a perfect fit for me. I plan on studying Sports Management." The 6'3 285 pound, Kramer, stated to Hustle Belt.
"I was impressed by their coaches, campus, the facilities, and I can see myself being a part of the Falcon family for the next four years of my life. It feels amazing to finally be done with the process, and I couldn't be any happier on where I've decided to further my football career." He added on his commitment to Bowling Green.
Jack isn't the only who believes he made a wise decision, as so does the entire Falcons coaching staff.
"I broke the news to my recruiting coordinator, coach Sean Lewis, who is also the receivers coach at BGSU. He and the rest of the coaching staff were extremely happy and excited to have me be their first commit. In their program, they see me as an interior defensive tackle, and that is where I've always loved to play." Kramer said.
Playing on both sides of the ball for Plainfield North, Jack, was one of the key leaders for the Tigers last season, and finished the year out with 35 total tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and also batted down a pass from his defensive tackle position.
