2016 Bowling Green Football Recruiting: DE Drew Beesley chooses the Falcons

Coach Dino Babers gets his ninth commit of the 2016 class.

Bowling Green received a commitment from De La Salle High School's defensive end Drew Beesley.  Beesley announced his decision on Twitter Tuesday night.  Air Force, Ball State, Army, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Northern Illinois, Toledo, Central Michigan, and Saginaw Valley reportedly coveted him enough to extend an offer, but in the end Beesley chose Bowling Green.  According to Rivals, Beesley is listed as a two-star prospect.

Hustle Belt was fortunate enough to reach Bowling Green's newest commit.  Beesley explained why Bowling Green was a perfect fit for him.  "Bowling Green just has everything I'm looking for!  Academics, great environment, great program, and good people!  I know that I'll be successful at Bowling Green!"

Drew Beesley was a monster that offenses did not want to see.  At De La Salle High School, Beesley recorded 60 total tackles, 20 for a loss, and 5.5 sacks in his junior year, per MaxPreps.  Beesley was a key part to the defensive line that helped contribute to the Pilots' 2014 Division II state title.

Beesley also has a few goals that he hopes to accomplish during his time at Bowling Green.  "Inividual goals are one thing, but my main goals are to get a good education and to create a legacy at Bowling Green!  We're gonna win championships!"
