Nearly a week after accepting the head coach position at Bowling Green, Mike Jinks has landed his first verbal commitment as a Falcon. On Sunday evening, class of 2016 athlete Josh Stoner announced he will suit up in the Brown and Orange on the college level.
"I did some research on the new coaching staff with my family, and we liked the decision on the head coach. We have heard nothing but good things. I was very glad when I got to speak with him." The two-star prospect stated to Hustle Belt.
"I think BGSU haven't lost a beat. They have a great history of head coaches, and winning also. I had already liked the school to begin with education, and campus wise. The new staff was also very quick to say hello, and I also know some of the coaches who stayed. It just seemed like it was the best fit even after the head coach left." Stoner added on his commitment to Bowling Green.
Seeing time at a number of positions for Worthington Kilbourne High School, the 5'10, 190-pound newest Falcon is use to having the ball in his hands. Knowing college is a whole new ball game, Stoner is looking forward to helping Bowling Green whenever his name is called upon.
"I was recruited as a running back and slot receiver. I play a lot of positions, and have a lot of different skill sets. Wherever they put me I'll find my role."
Stoner, who reportedly held scholarship offers from the likes of Air Force, Navy, Miami, and Toledo throughout the recruiting process, is considered the 374th overall all-purpose running back, and 2,628th overall prospect in the class of 2016, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
