2016 Bowling Green football recruiting: S Evan Foster and DB Ty Redding commit to the Falcons

New, comments

Bowling Green adds two more defensive players to their 2016 recruiting class.

Bowling Green landed its 14th and 15th commitments for the 2016 recruiting class on Monday evening. DB Evan Foster and DB Ty Redding both announced their commitments on their respective personal Twitter accounts.

Shortly after Foster's commitment, the 6-foot-1 190 pound safety caught up with Hustle Belt and spoke very highly of Bowling Green.

"BG was a place I felt so comfortable it was almost like home, I've been there so many times it became a second home to me. Also, there's nothing better than to pick up where your brother left off."

Foster chose the Falcons over a reported offer from Eastern Michigan.

Redding also talked with us to explain why BG was the place for him.

"They(BG) showed me the most love, the coaching staff fit me the best throughout the recruiting process, I just felt like it was home there and I had to reunite with big bro!"

Redding chose the Falcons over reported offers from Ball State, Buffalo, EMU, Miami, Temple, and Toledo.

For many Falcon fans, both of these recruits' last names may sound familiar and well, they should. Evan is the younger brother of recent Bowling Green grad, DB Aaron Foster while Ty is the younger brother of current wide receiver Teo Redding. Teo Redding played in seven games last season compiling five catches for 59 yards and even returned a few punts for the Falcons as well.

Both Ty and Evan told Hustle Belt via Direct Messages that their brothers were a big factor in their decision.

Ty Redding on his older brother Teo: "It was very big, he taught me a lot and I learned a lot from him by doing 1on1s vs him and I had the opportunity to play with him in HS my freshman year and his senior but I decided to go to Mott and I just thought while through the process I couldn't pass up playing with him in college."

Evan Foster on his older brother Aaron: "It played a big factor because I was very familiar with everything about them since I pretty much went to all their games."

Foster plays both wide receiver and safety at West Bloomfield High School located in West Bloomfield, Michigan.  Redding is in a similar position as he plays wide receiver and defensive back at Warren Mott HS located in Warren, Michigan. Both are being recruiting by Bowling Green to play on the defensive side of the ball.
