Bowling Green landed its first wide receiver for the 2017 recruiting class on Tuesday evening. Needless to say, the coaching staff and fellow recruits were fired up.
WR Colin Debord announced his decision on his Twitter page on Tuesday evening.
Debord is known for his speed as he is a dual-threat quarterback in high school. However, he projects to play wide receiver at the next level where he can best take advantage of his speed and agility.
He chose the Falcons over reported offers from Ohio and Ball State. Currently, he attends Centerville high school located in Centerville, Ohio.
For as shifty as he is, you would expect Debord to be undersized similar to former MAC superstars such as Dri Archer and Daniel Braverman. However that is not the case as Debord stands at 6-foot-1 180 pounds. His ability to turn short passes into big plays reminds one of former WMU wide receiver recent Bears draftee Daniel Braverman.
Out of six total commits, Debord is the second recruit from the state of Ohio. Bowling Green has always recruited their home state heavily and it does not look like that is going to change anytime soon.
Hustle Belt has reached out to Debord for comment on his commitment, and we will update this article as necessary.
